She could have a 92% chance of survival. It would cost $500,000+, though.

So it's an issue to remove a living baby from a dead woman but it's okay to cut her open and weigh her organs and test her blood after she's dead solely for research and record keeping purposes. Okay.

That 92% is for a baby born at 30 weeks to a healthy alive woman.

"So what will this extended hospital stay cost?

Medical ventilation can run $1,500 per day, according to a 2005 study, and long-term ICU can run about $5,000 per day. But Munoz's unique situation could mean even higher costs, said Adam C. Powell, PhD, a healthcare economist at Payer+Provider in Boston.

At $5,000 per day, Munoz's hospital bills would be $350,000 after 70 days, or 24 weeks into her pregnancy, when the baby would have about a 50% chance of survival. By the time she reaches 112 days, at which point she would be 30 weeks pregnant, the bill would be $560,000, and the baby would have more than a 92% chance of survival.

Then there's the cost of a C-section, roughly $4,500 for physicians' fees alone, according to the Healthcare Blue Book.

Once the child is born, Brian S. Carter, MD, a neonatologist at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., told MedPage Today that the neonate could spend anywhere between 2 to 4 months in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), depending upon how many weeks he or she is premature."


Where does it say that? They're discussing the costs the father would incur as a result of everything that has happened thus far.

It's a sad situation. It is my belief that all life should be preserved and anything medically necessary that must be done to save a life must be done.

If the family wants to terminate the pregnancy, then the hospital should definitely foot the bill.

I mean, it's Texas. They don't give a damn about that woman, her wishes or her rights. She gon be plugged in til that baby weighs 7lbs.

But now if someone were to point out  that that 'losing consciousness unexpectedly' story sounds fishy and that an autopsy might reveal foul play and raise they possibility that they could send a Mexican/Hispanic/Latino/Chicano/whatevuh to prison the chair/chamber...well, they'd probably yank that cord out the socket so fast the plug would hit the yanker in the face. IJS

eta: Cuz she look white and they would charge him with killing her and the unborn child.

The stats are for healthy women with relatively normal pregnancies. They neglected to state that in the article.
