  •  Personally, I've never heard ANYBODY (none)
    say, "If something happens and I'm a vegetable, I want you to make sure they keep me alive no matter what."

    Nobody ever says that! Because for most people, there is no dignity or meaning in an existence like that. I myself would not want to be a burden to my family. It's just repugnant to me.

    Another thing - have you seen pictures of her "before?" She was an attractive woman! Wouldn't she'd be horrified to know that she's all over the tv looking the way she does now?

    You know this is going to sound really awful but her parents just need to grow the fuck up! Yes, it IS hard to give up a loved one but millions of people do it every year and they can too. They just don't want to give her up. You get the feeling that even after the woman DIES, they'll still be parading her corpse around ala Weekend at Bernies.
