Oh, gee...MAY we?

It's impossible to diagnose when a fetus is "days away from viability", mostly because every fetus develops at its own rate and you can't test for standard viability in the womb.

It doesn't matter; her wishes for her life and treatment take precedent. Hopefully, this could escalate to a constitutional challenge; since the fetus wasn't viable or at the 24th week, state interest could not be imposed per RvW.

Again, her wishes were made known while speaking about HER life not while being pregnant.
Question....if that womans baby was mere days away from being viable, do you think it would be wrong to keep her alive as an "incubator" leaving the baby a good chance at survival?
The rest of you are welcome to answer.

Spending eternity with a spoiled brat is not very appetizing.
These fundies preach about God this and God that, but show a surprising lack of faith on here.

And yeah, why would a being so powerful be filled with so many negative, human emotions, and need so much attention and back-patting?

A question I answered long ago - the Divine doesn't "need" anything. Certainly not the help of creation, in whatever endeavors it sets for itself.

It's bigger than that.

Go back to school. Take notes....we ALL began our lifes journey as a fertilized egg. I should get paid for all this tutoring.
You would get laughed out of a biology class if you claimed that a fertilized egg is the same as a baby in one.

I was constipated, like really impacted and passing stinking gas so my priest offered to ream my ass till it popped. I was so happy I licked his reamer clean. Then I told my daughter she should die instead of ever getting an abortion.
Your sick and evil.

<quoted text> What wishes did the woman have that included being pregnant?
None.
Exactly.
So stop making sh*t up. This man didn't even want to give his wife a chance(let alone his developing child). She could have come out of the coma.
Dearest "Sassafrass," attempting to interject your personal moralistic outrage into this scenario is not only unbecoming, it's blatantly false, manipulative, and propagandistic.
The woman in question had previously stated her wishes--not to be kept alive by artificial means.
Period.
Her husband, trying to honor her wishes, was thwarted--for a while--by an ultra-conservative, religiously-motivated doctrine that places the life/wishes of a pregnant woman as being less important than the concerns for her "z-e-f."
As an EMT, this man clearly knew that his wife had sustained substantial brain damage due to lack of oxygen. Also, as an EMT, he knew perfectly well, that her oxygen deprivation was transferred to her unborn "z-e-f." The result of which being a "child" unable to live without artificial assistance.
Sometimes you've got to consider "quality" of life versus "quantity."

They won't. They really just couldn't care any less, about 'quality' of life. They leave THAT part up to their so-called 'god' and the unwilling parents. It's quantity for these folks, and quality be damned....if you're pre-born, you're fine...if you're pre-school, you're fooked. Twas ever thus with these fetus-sniffing hypocrites.

Dear "John-KKK",

Have you intentionally killed your "inconvenient" elderly parents yet?

Um, what you call "perfect knowledge" is nothing more than intellectual dishonesty & pure uneducated speculation.

What were you saying about "false, manipulative, and propagandistic?"

You're default mode is ALWAYS to "kill inconveniences." It's how you roll.

Dear Chicky,

The check you receive to put Twinkies & buscuits-n-gravy on your table is received from a Catholic organization that you willingly work for.

So, that happened..........

Dear Elise,

You admit openly to intentionally killing your little "invconviences."

You also now work with the elderly.

John-KKK's elderly parents have become "inconveniences."

Don't be surprised if he contacts you in search of some "advice."

After all, you two think alike..........

I think it is you who needs to return to school and study both biology and English comprehension. Yes, a zygote or embryo is one stage of the process...
but is a blastocyst/zygote/embryo a "baby" at that moment?
According to Bitner, if you feel loving and compasionate toward it, you can call it a baby.
