As many as 10,000 people in this country are chronically unconscious, kept alive by artificial respirators and feeding tubes. If you were in an accident that left you in a vegetative state, would you want doctors to do everything possible to fight for your life? Would you want to spend months or even years totally unaware of your surroundings? Should health-care professionals have the right to declare that anyone is too old, too ill, or too frail to try to save? Should they have the right to insist that someone live on even if that person isn't experiencing much of a life?

Essay
Answer:

Answer:

An individual's point of view on being kept alive while in a persistent vegetative state may be affected by religious beliefs, beliefs on how life should be experienced, and concern about how the decision will affect others, among other reasons.
Some believe that a health care professional should take all possible measures to save a person's life. Some believe that a person will not have a good quality of life under certain circumstances and may agree with a decision by a health care professional to end life.
