Since May, 87-year-old Helen Wanglie has lain unconscious and motionless at the Hennepin County Medical Center here. Although there is no hope for recovery, she is kept alive by a breathing machine, feedings through a stomach tube, and round-the-clock care. In most such cases, physicians and family agree that further care is futile and quietly let the patient die. Not in the Wanglie case.
