Never trust a bioethicist (?)

More on the case of Jahi, the little girl who died because of a tonsillectomy and bad post op care.

The disability group Not dead yet points out that there are reasons that the public confuse brain death, coma, and vegetative state (where the person is awake but not 'alert"). They link to this article on the problem LINK discusses cases where people recovered

and their point on blacks distrusting the medical profession is another point rarely mentioned in the coverage. Again LINK
