For myself...never, no invasive, life sustaining procedures for me.
For my child...it would depend on what caused the coma and if I got the same opinion from a secondary source. I would likely allow it while I received second and third opinions but I would never allow it to continue for any length of time. I do not want my children to suffer.
Life is meant to be lived...it is not meant for a person to lay in a hospital bed with no knowledge of themselves, their condition or their surroundings.

If there is little to no chance of recovery, then no, let me go! As hard as it would be, I would do the same for my husband and my children.
