PVS: Diagnosis with an Agenda

As usual, The American Thinker has an excellent article written by Carl Rossini. Rossini correctly observes that the term "Vegetative" when applied to a human being is not only a non sequitur but is also a purposeful deception designed to dehumanize a person in order to legitimize euthanasia.

The article concludes with this statement:

The crossroads are upon us, where men and women in medicine are going to be forced to choose between terminology that accurately communicates a patient’s condition, or language that facilitates the killing those patients with disorders of the brain. And the rest of us must learn to parse the science from propaganda in diagnostic language

He has much more to say so read the whole piece.
