Death or paralysis?

You’re out for a little deer hunting and when you start climbing the deer stand ladder, you fall to the ground. You wake up in the hospital and they tell you that you will never walk again.

You’re paralyzed. You won’t be able to hold the baby that is still in your young wife’s womb. Your quality of life, they say, won’t be very good. You might not even have a long life.

You have a choice, the doctors say. They can remove the tube that’s been helping you breathe and you’ll die.

Which do you choose?

An Indiana man had to make the decision on Sunday.
