Another Terri Schiavo in the making

Lauren is a disabled young woman whose life is in danger because she can't speak for herself.
Lauren's father wants Lauren to live. Her mother, who has custody wants to dehydrate her to death a la Terri Schiavo.
"Lauren has not received rehabilitative treatment and therapy that could lead to her recovery. We marvel that though Lauren was given up for dead, that she gave birth to a daughter in her condition and even after the removal of a respirator and sealing of a tracheotomy opening, she continued to live and has steadily improved, all this with only minimal medical intervention. How much further would she progress with basic rehabilitation services?"
from her father's website
Society is truly in love with death when a mother would let a hospital intentionally kill her own daughter BEFORE trying even the normal rehabilitation.
