It's not my habit to post in Politics but I think this is a real tricky subject.
When I was in a coma, the doctors pulled the plug on my daughter without my consent. She maybe had no chances to survive but I really think it should've been my decision and my daughter couldn't choose at all...

I weep for you Julie.

Julie, I pray that in your mourning you will be comforted.
Take comfort that there are people around, often far off, who willingly give you comfort now.
Sister, here is my shoulder, rest on it, cry into it, and know comfort.

I simply just have to make an earlier comeback than planned.

Julie sweetheart, you have been through what no young woman should ever have to have experienced. You have shown stamina, courage, and downright guts which belies your age, and is a total credit to you. I'll support you 100% in all your endeavours.

Julie...You have come through H311 and have come back as a much stronger person than you even realize.
The choice about Your Daughter Should have been Yours to make.
If You My Dear Friend Ever need someone to Talk to or just Communicate with Never hesitate to contact Me. All it would take is one small message and we could work out the details.
You are a Strong and Caring person who has been through too much and Are Loved by many.
I Truly wish Peace for You and Yours for the rest of your life.

Julie, I really don't know what to say. I just wish you had been available to make the decision.

It is a reminder to everyone to leave written instructions on what to do and who shall decide. You hope they are never needed, but better a loved one who knows how you think makes the decision rather than a bureaucrat.
