Apparently many patients diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state are misdiagnosed. Most of the time such patients are not even subjected to well known and understood scans for brain activity.
So, maybe the Republicans were right so long ago, even if for all the wrong reasons. Maybe if even one of the grandstanding politicians from that one case so long ago had mentioned something like this instead of making it into a religion based moral argument things would've gone differently, people would've been educated and lives could've been saved.
