From Quinlan to Jobes: The Courts and the PVS Patient
Armstrong, Paul W.
Hastings Center Report. 1988 Feb/Mar; 18(1): 37-40.
Paul Armstrong and B.D. Colen address the issues of deciding whether to withhold life-sustaining treatment from patients in a persistent vegetative state in the courtroom. They deplore what they see as unnecessary recourse to the courts in case after case on the termination of treatment. They trace it to myths and misinformation about the law in the minds of treating physicians.
