She had been in a coma since 1992.
This was an HUGE issue in Italy, as the "right-to-die" people fought the conservatives to allow Eluana to die. It became a political nightmare, just like Terry Schiavo was a big deal in the U.S. a few years ago.
Oh- by the way, 40,000 people died of starvation or starvation-related disease yesterday.
Anyone fighting about that? Are there huge factions of political powers bringing this issue to light?
40,000 people dying of the SAME THING as Eluana, except Eluana couldn't feel it coming, didn't know it was coming, didn't see someone else die next to them the day before.
