...The point is that although physicians and hospitals (and their legal counsel) certainly feared in the 1970s and still fear prosecution and civil liability (and perhaps to an unreasonable degree), neither the complex psychosocial and economic nor the equally complex philosophical questions surrounding stopping artificial life support were settled at the time of the Quinlan case, and they are still not settled today. Perhaps our legal history does not need to be revised all that much.
