I know this society has a tendency to treat unborn children as lifeless ragdolls capable of being disposed at the mother's discretion but they received no such permission from her to terminate the baby's life. If it can be sustained I don't see the issue.


Aside from the fact that the mother did express her wishes to her husband...

At 14 weeks the fetus is not reasonably viable. I could see if we were talking about a woman who was in her 3rd trimester and the baby has a possibility of survival outside the womb.

And let's fast forward to when the baby is able to be delivered. Her body is not going to go into labor...they will have to perform a major surgery (c-section) on a dead woman. No doctor will do that. So then what? The now fully formed fetus (that can now experience pain and trauma) will die inside its dead mother. Let's at least have some compassion for the fetus and the husband who was left behind.

If this is not what the family wanted then I can see why it is a problem. But in Texas, doctors can override the patient's family life support wishes only if the patient did not have what she wanted recorded and she has no medical power of attorney.

I think this law is unique to Texas.

That's what he needs to do.  Ask who is going to pay for it.  Let it be known that he don't have what i'm sure will be 6 if not 7 figures to sustain her. I'm sure the hospital will find a way to change their mind.

You don't see why keeping a dead person as an incubator for a fetus might be a problem?

If the hospital will pay for it and the family does not have to pay
no. I want the child to live..

The hospital won't pay for anything. This will be the husband's responsibility or tax payers.

Some people act like they really have a personal problem with fetuses. She will still be dead when the child is ready to be born. There is no rush.

The baby obviously cannot survive without it's mother, at 14 weeks it is utterly ridiculous for them to propose keeping that woman on life support until it's fully developed. Fukkin wack jobs.
