The ‘‘it'' Brophy refers to was the state's most memorable right-to-die case, which ended in 1986 when Massachusetts' top court ruled Brophy had the right to remove a feeding tube from her comatose husband.
As a result of the Brophy case, the state in 1990 passed a law that lets people name a family member or friend to make medical decisions for them should they become unable to.
Brophy, however, also knows all too well that the pain of losing a loved one trumps any satisfaction that might come from court victories.

 O'Rourke - Issues: Who Will Determine Medical Ethics?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The Supreme Court of New Jersey, in the famous Claire Conroy case (see EIHC, January '85), determined that tube feeding could be withdrawn from a comatose patient if severe pain is present or there is some indication that the patient would choose removal of life-support systems were he or she able to do so.
Last month in Dedham, Massachusetts, a probate judge issued an injunction blocking the removal of tube feeding from Paul Brophy, a comatose fire fighter, who had expressed a desire to die swiftly in case of severe disabling illness.
Brophy's and her children's request to terminate life-support, declared that "it is ethically inappropriate to cause the preventable death of Brophy by the deliberate denial of food and water which can be provided to him in a noninvasive, nonintrusive manner which causes no pain and suffering, irrespective of the substituted judgment of the patient."
