Why Would You Keep Someone Alive, In A Vegetative State For 14-Years (Or More)?

Search on Google News for ‘vegetative state‘.

This came to light, alas, as to the Native Indian woman, 29-years old, in a vegetative-state, at a Phoenix, Arizona, nursing facility, unexpectedly giving birth (to a baby boy) last week.

Yes, there are multiple horrendous issues that have to be worked out here. Key among them being that everybody was totally oblivious to her being pregnant UNTIL she started to give birth! Yes, they only realized she was pregnant when she went into labor. Think about that. 9-months in a vegetative state with nobody taking care of her pregnancy.

Yes, she was Native Indian from a local tribe.

Yes, she had been raped. Most likely repeatedly. You have to be very sick to do that.

She is 29-years old.

[I had originally heard, incorrectly, that she had been in a vegetative state for 27-years. No so.]

She has been in a vegetative state for 14-years. Had to do with a near-drowning when she was 15.

Why keep somebody alive, like this, for 14-years? That is not fair on anyone.

That is disturbing. We really should have guidelines and rules.

Maximum of say 5-years. This is crazy. This upsets me much on multiple planes.

I am at a loss. As a Brit, deep down, I knew that none of the nurses duped by the Aussies would get disciplined — and that the Royals would maintain a stiff upper lip without censuring those who thought they were doing the right thing. As somebody who enjoys practical jokes, it distresses me that a bit of innocent fun could lead to this; she was the mother of 2 kids. Possibly there is more to this than we currently know. While she might have been upset, this was not ‘huge’. But, she might have been new to the U.K. I wish Prince William had taken a minute to talk to the two nurses and tell them that it was ‘OK’. But, he probably thought that it was not necessary. Yes, U.K. hospitals need to have a diluted form of the U.S. ‘HIPPA‘. I don’t know what to say. This is terrible.

Click to read story in the very respectable, very proper, U.K. ‘The Telegraph’. There is also a video of the statement made by the hospital.

Read more and see more pictures in the U.K. ‘Daily Mail’, my preferred U.K. newspaper of all time — a nice cross between ‘high brow’ and ‘tabloid’.

Per a habit among us Brits I tried counting backwards, but it would appear that it is possible that they made the baby in France around the time the pictures were taken.

So here is the prank call to the hospital, and it cracks me up that a British hospital, in London no less, would actually think that the Queen will make a call:

For Kate Middleton and Prince William gossip from Kate’s school friend Jessica Hay, including a tantalizingly salacious titbit about a shared drunken kiss — made out as if this is something that most girls haven’t done sometime during their youth.
