Edward Furton is an ethicist and director of publications with The National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The center offers a 24 hour hotline that Catholics can call with questions related to medical ethics, and Furton said they often receive calls from family members whose loved ones have been diagnosed as being in a vegetative state.

"(They) are being told that their loved ones can't feel anything, they're completely unaware, that we can take away food and water it won't bother them, they won't even notice," Furton told CNA.
"These things I think are very dangerous views, because we should always presume that the patient has some level of consciousness."
Typically, medical doctors will assume that a patient is unconscious if there are no outward signs of consciousness, Furton said.
...
Catholics also have a different understanding of the human person, Furton said, in that they believe people are a union of body and soul, which is different than the prevailing beliefs in the current medical community, and could contribute to the tendency to over-diagnose patients as vegetative.
"One of the main issues here is that the scientific community, which strongly influences the medical community, tends toward materialism," Furton added.
