I am interested to see what people here think of this. It is a tragic situation all around.
Personally, I think if it were my child I would have pulled him off the ventilator long ago. That's no way for any creature to live. (and I don't quite get the mother's argument that she wants him to die 'naturally', by keeping him on a ventilator). Of course I am childless so my view might change if I had a kid.
On the other hand, I do also think it is the parents' decision. As the doctor in the article said, I disagree with the decision but I agree that the boy's mother has the right to make whatever choice she wants. I would like to believe that the hospital truly has the kid's interests in mind, but you know healthcare...
Anyway, everyone let me know what you think. But be nice please!
