Karen Grandstand Gervais (au)
For centuries, death was considered to occur when a personís heart & lungs stopped functioning. Now that it is possible to keep these organs working mechanically, how do we redefine death? Proposes that those patients who are permanently unconscious -- who are in a persistent vegetative state -- should be declared dead. Human life involves existence as a person, & that is present only when the brain allows the possíy. of consciousness. Examines the public policy defining death in the U.S. -- the Uniform Declaration of Death Act -- & presents objections to the policy consid. involved in support of this act. Propose that death be defined as the permanent cessation of consciousness, but that allows people to elect a less radical policy for their own treat.
