i do not usually post here because i feel im out of my league with regaurds to being informed but i came across a pretty striking article.
Good post. This was on BBC the other day.
There has been a number of issues with increadibly disabled children with very severe pain and mental/developmental issues and not giving resus. These have been to court.
This is an extremely emotive issue, and i have my own opinions on this, but i wont go there.
The issue is often a one between drs judgement and parents. whilst the parent is important, are they in the most objective position to make such a call?
And if i stimulate a nemitode worm with environmental input and it responds in some manner, does that mean its demonstating certain levels of conciousness?
Either way, its a tragedy and very sad to see a family stretched in this way.
