Indian Supreme Court To Decide On Their Terri Schiavo

The case of Aruna Shanbaug, India's Terri Schiavo, has reached the Indian Supreme Court. Hopefully they'll listen to Aruna's caregivers, who love her very much, keep her comfortable, and who realize that she has dignity in living, not in being killed.
SC to hear Aruna Shanbaug euthanasia plea
The petition of Mumbai nurse Aruna Shanbaug, who is in a coma for the past 36 years in a Mumbai hospital, seeking permission to die, will come up for hearing in the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
