Re: Right on

Thanks for your comment, Jim

I am not so sure the judge is being cowardly. There are many ethical considerations in this case that may not be nearly as clear as our legal understanding of death. I am encouraged that the courts did NOT force the hospital to perform surgery or allow an outsider to perform surgery, AND that the coroner issued a death certificate. These things take time, for both society and individual families. While I would prefer the courts stayed out of it, we cannot fault any of the players in this situation for doing what they believe is right.
