The medical experts agree that although the
patient had been diagnosed as in a vegetative
state, she clearly retained the ability to under-
stand spoken commands and to respond to them
through her brain activity, rather than through
speech or movement. They also stated that her
ability to cooperate confirmed beyond any
doubt that she was consciously aware of herself
and her surroundings.
The teaching of the Church has consistently
reaffirmed the importance of the dignity of eve-
ry human life, even when that life appears to be
unresponsive. A case like this one should no doubt help to
change attitudes and views of people living in so-called per-
sistent vegetative states.
