Perhaps he made his wife a promise, and now feels duty bound to fulfil it.
What about that promise made before God to love honor and cherish til death do us part? Do you get to choose which promises you keep and which you do not?
Granted, I don't think I would like to live like Terii, but if I am brain dead, what would it matter? If I am only aware that someone I love is in the room, but that makes me happy, who can say if that is not a good quality of life?
Terii is a test. How do we treat the most defenseless among us? We are failing that test.
When those words " til death do us part" became part of the marriage vows there was no such thing as man interfering with the life and death process... if you died you were not revived and the appearance of life was not maintained by machines.
We all can argue this until we are blue in the face, we will not change each others minds on what we believe, it is the Creater that will have the final word.
I say, as I always have, if it is meant to be it will be no matter how hard we kick and scream. This woman was dead 15 years ago and we in our wisdom(?) have kept a shell of a person alive and away from the eternal rest she and her parents supposedly believe. To me this is in direct confrontation with their beliefs.
I support the separation of church and hate!

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.
