The same nurse whose testimony had to be thrown out for blatantly lying on
Wrong, all it requires is a nervous system. Morphine is commonly used in cases like this to relieve involuntary responses from the lower limbic system. That
part of the brain stem was still intact and functioning. But the higher brain functions like vision, self-awareness, the ability to percieve pain, etc... were
no longer there. Terri was no longer there.
See above, breathing, heartbeat and all the rest can be managed by lower
nervous system functions that do not require sentience to continue to work.
No he couldn't, the court decision was based on more than just his testimony.
Many years after he had accepted that Terri was never going to recover.
And after he had done the best that was medically possible to try to effect recovery.
Because that would have gone against Terri's wishes.
And screw her husband, and to hell with what Terri might have wanted, right?
If she was not brain dead, then she would have been trapped in a body that
could not see, could hardly sense, and could not respond to the world around
her. That would have been a living hell for over 15 years.
If you have followed this closely as you claim, then you know that there is no
care money left, and hasn't been any for years. And any life insurance money
to incur would go to pay the outstanding medical bills that have built up since.
