Catholic man in coma should be starved says court; Family disagrees


CHRISTIAN TODAY — Appeals court judges have urged the Catholic family of a comatose man to allow him to die.

The family, who have not been named, have been supported by the Christian Legal Centre in their bid to prevent doctors from withdrawing fluids and nutrition.

The middle-aged man from Poland, who also cannot be named, suffered brain damage after having a heart attack last November.

Their position is supported by the man’s wife, who said he would not want to be a burden.
