The Committee does not underestimate these costs, including the non-financial strains a family may face. But the Committee worries that a decision based upon the intent to avoid the overall burdens of caring for a debilitated person may be morally suspect. They say: 30 JOSEPH BOYLE In the context of official Church teaching, it is not yet clear to what extent we may assess the burden of a patient's total care rather than the burden of a particular treatment when we seek to refuse "burdensome" life support.

Many Catholics have come to accept the idea that death occurs when the human body is no longer able to function as an integrated organism, and that the functioning of the brain stem is necessary for integrated organic functioning ([19], pp. 53-55; [27]; [53], pp. 24-31; [57], pp. 32-38). This developing consensus reflects two interconnected concerns: (1) the distinction between brain death and persistent vegetative state, and more generally a rejection of redefinitions of death that allow a criterion of injury to the brain short of that which renders the entire brain incapable of function; (2) the need to guarantee that vital organs not be removed until a patient is surely dead, and in a manner that shows proper respect for the newly dead human being.

The reasoning for this strongly restrictive conclusion is not compelling. However, a number of elements within it are worth noting. First, the Bishops make clear that providing nutrition and hydration is not required for all patients, nor for all patients in PVS, in all circumstances; there are cases in which such efforts involve a disproportionate burden or are strictly futile ([6], pp. 547-548, 550).
