Welcome To The Bitchery

Jahi McMath

Easily the most uncomfortable story to follow in the news right now. And I think the hospital and media aren't being sensitive to her family.

I agree that brain death is death, but the coverage establishing her as brain-dead in headlines, along with the hospital referring to the girl as "the body of Jahi" rather than Jahi, strikes me as particularly belittling to a family living through a nightmare.


I gotta be that person. I know Terri Schiavo wasn't declared brain dead, but I think the media's coverage would have been really different if she had.
