Her parents can't seem to drop the shit. It's not like she can come back to life or anything~

Hmm...I'd say attention whoring with a mixture of grieving.

I'm annoyed because the scientist already did a autopsy on her and said that she was going to be in a vegetative state FOR THE REST of her life so it would've been better to ease her suffering......blah.

I'd say it's a really bad case of denial.  The fact that the plug was pulled on her certainly doesn't help them to properly deal with her death, at least psychologically.  You know that if she had died "on her own" we wouldn't be hearing any of this right now.

But she couldn't die on her own because she was artifically being kept alive.

I know that, the fact that they were keeping her on life support for so long just prolongedthe family's agony when she finally died.  If they hadn't forced her to stay alive so long they likely wouldn't have so much trouble accepting the results of the autopsy.
