    • Abstract:
      The author comments on the article "Changing the Conversation About Death," by R. C. Truog and F. G. Miller. Topics covered include the reason the denial of insurance for brain-dead patients is arbitrary, factors which foster the suspicion that brain dead patients are viewed instrumentally and details of the case filed by the family of Jahi McMath, a California girl who suffered severe hypoxicbrain injury as a result of post surgical blood loss, and was declared brain dead.
