The only problem with your argument is the potential for abuse - a family member with a strong dislike for the person, or who has a vested interest in their death, could have the ability to turn off life support, even if the person may still have a chance
Who is we who you feel should decide rather than the family?
The family is in the best position to know the person on life support and their wishes. If they left legal instructions (like a living will) then obviously that takes precedence but, barring that, those that know and love the individual are the best way of knowing the wishes of the person.
