    The 42-year-old nurse, now in a hospital in Reims, suffered an accident in 2008 which left him quadriplegic and with extensive brain damage. He is described by some as “semi-conscious,” and by others as being “in a vegetative state.” Vincent can sleep and wake up, respond to some voices, can swallow, and breathe on his own. He is not dependent on machines to live, but he is dependent on nutrition and hydration being delivered in a special manner, like many people.

    The Court of Cassation’s final ruling means that Lambert, who is not otherwise ill or at the end of his life, would be removed from food and water and left to die slowly, which can take 14 days or more. The decision cannot be appealed in France, but his parents are fighting the order and have threatened to press charges for murder if his food is removed. However, Vincent’s wife and six of his eight siblings believe he should be forced to die.

    Sad. This reminds me a lot of Terri Schiavo in 2005. Her parents fought to keep her alive, even offering to take care of her themselves. Her husband wanted her death.
    It seems this is the same here.

    This situation upsets me because I tried so hard to keep my husband alive and here are people who would starve a person to death!

    For now they'll be focused on extreme cases such as this one. All it took was one severely disabled baby named Gerhard Kretschmar to be euthanized and start the Aktion T4 Program in Nazi Germany. Only difference being is this will be done in the name of human rights instead of outright saying some people don't deserve rights.

    This is exactly what many of us saw coming. The "Right to Die with Dignity," would become "The Duty to Die," and eventually, "The Right to Kill."

    In certain cases, this already happens, aka abortion, a "right to kill" under the guise of "its my body, my choice".
