If you became brain-dead, would you want them to pull the plug?

Brain dead, as it implies the brain is no longer there and that is me, so I say pull the plug and harvest what you can be used to help others..

Why? You can still do a lot of things without your brain. This baby doesn't even have a brain
At least he has a potential career working for Fox News.

My will is specific. All heroic measures are to be taken regardless of what condition my body is in, as long as my brain is active. Comatose doesn't count, since I've been there and even briefly dead. If a "persistent vegetative state" or "brain death" occurs, then harvest everything that still works (corneas, skin, bones, nerves, heart...) and burn the rest. The alternative approach is donation to a medical school. My brain is my existence. If it's gone, then so am I.

Coma...
Being in a coma does not equal being brain dead.
