Every now and then, a story about PVS comes out and I am reminded of Terri Schiavo.  Terri Schiavo suffered from PVS (Persistent Vegetative State) and was allowed to die from dehydration.  Regardless of whether or not she was conscious, allowing her to die in such a manner has uneqivocally been denounced by the Holy See as incompatible with Catholic medical ethics and morals.
