Out of Coma, Into Court?

Haleigh Poutre, the girl beaten into a coma, who courts were urged, just days after her injuries, to let go into death, has begun speaking about her beating.
Though the girl's recovery is unusual, Larry Goldstein, director of the Center for Cerebrovascular Disease at Duke University Medical Center, said there have been other reported cases of people recovering from persistent vegetative states within a few months.

So, why are people in such a hurry to move these patients from life to death?

I'm getting more inclined NOT to "pull the plug" on patients.



The above case, and the one below show why.
