I do not believe that she should have become the victim of a fight between her husband and parents.

I think she is a martyr.

It's a private family matter and national media attention being given to it didn't benefit anyone other than the media.

The decision belonged to her husband. Courts reaffirmed this. The legislature overstepped its bounds in trying follow the dictates of the religious right. The media latched onto the whole thing like a leach. The public stared, like at the scene of an accident.

Sometimes I wonder if he should have just let her live. Her family obviously strongly wanted her to remain alive, even if she's a total vegetable. What harm would it have caused to just let her continue on? Divorce her and sign her "body" over to them to maintain. It's not like he'd be divorcing the wife he married. She was lost to him 15 years ago.

But if it were me, I wouldn't want to live like that. And if he had reason to believe she wouldn't want to live like that, perhaps he did the best he could for her.

Its reasons like this euthanasia should be legal.
