I truly believe in a quality of life. I could have dealt with my daughter being deaf, or blind, or crippled, or missing a limb, but anything dealing with extensive brain damage, that isn't living. It is just isn't. My family has very clear instructions that should I ever get into a major car accident and would be left with major brain damage to just let me go.
God forgive me for saying this, but if my daughter was born facing the same thing, she would have been better off being in God's hands. Babies that are facing such horrible physical defects grow up, and what happens if they outlive the parents? They get put in a home or some other type of institution where bathing, feeding, and bathroom is the highlight of their existance. To me, this is far worse than death.
