(CTV News) – France’s highest appeals court will on Monday begin considering whether a man who has been in a vegetative state for a decade should have been put back on life support — the latest chapter in a wrenching right-do-die case that has divided the country.

The case of Vincent Lambert has also split the family of the 42-year-old nurse, with his devout Catholic parents launching several legal bids to maintain his nutrition, against the wishes of his wife and the doctors treating him.

He has been kept alive since a traffic accident in 2008 left him a quadraplegic with severe brain damage that doctors eventually determined was irreversible. CONTINUE
