This is a look at whether some people currently extant on the planet might best be euthanized for whatever reasons such as those encountered in this movie and more no doubt.

This includes having been on "life support" for 17 years as the woman in this storyline is and as well a look at those who are insane, unable to control violent outbursts of a harmful nature to the community and those insane or deranged and in an instance of one particular women who seems to vent in witch-like fashion uncontrollably and then say she cant  "feel anymore", quality of life issues become raised. So its anyone's guess as to how far you could take all the possible scenarios I suppose - and where to establish an end point to the sorts of examples which could well go on and on I suppose for some.

In an issue of Macleans magazine (published in Canada) I was quoted as having made the statement as follows in this respect:

"In order for life to be supported, there must be a meaningful existence at stake. The pain and suffering of all involved must be considered. If life
can only be justified on the basis that life is always a right and must be sustained only for this reason, then I suggest that we are being irrationally defensive
rather than truly good."
