Storyboard Text

  • Take away her feeding tubes!!!
  • I can do that ma´am.
  • Nancy Cruzan got in a car accident on January 11, 1983.  This car accident put her in a persistent vegetative state.
  • The doctor is right
  • Since she was in a persistent vegetative state, she could not show any mental capability, but could show muscle movement.  She had to be tube fed.
  • Her parents asked for her to have her life ended, the hospital denied this decision, this was later brought to court.
  • The Missouri Supreme Court ruled in favor of the state's policy over Cruzan's right to refuse treatment.
  • State policy, it strongly favoring the preservation of life, and that Cruzan's statements to her housemate were unreliable for the purpose of determining her intent. 
  • In the end Cruzan´s right to refuse treatment was later accepted, they pulled the plug and she was killed.
