More bias. The court ruled that it was the wish of TS not to be sustained, and they PREVENTED her desire from being thwarted. In other words, the court protected the rights of TS to the best of its ability.

The writer skips lightly around the real medical work that was done to ascertain the condition of TS, a condition which was confirmed at autopsy.
