What do you think? Should family members have the option to remove or keep a patient on life support or should it be up to the doctors?

i accept this challenge.

I will be the one who explains why the families should be the one to decide to pull the plug or not, if that's ok with you.

ok then...

Family memebers should have the ability to be able to remove a close friend or family member from life support so the patient doesn't suffer any more from pain or depression

In my view turning off life support is murder because brain death dont always mean brain death people have lived that was declared brain dead the person is alive until the machine is unplugged thus doctors commit murder when they unplug machine
