Yes, a "matter of a few weeks". Like I said, it's not like she would be kept alive forever against her wishes. It was to give her child life which SHE chose.
No, it was not a "matter of a few weeks". She was only 14 weeks pregnant.

Her body being kept alive, even for one day, WAS against her stated wishes.

Prove that she had changed her mind, otherwise you're just projecting your own personal feelings onto her. And your personal feelings are meaningless unless it's you.

No, he fought to honor his wife's wishes for two months.

No, the state is not. Don't be ridiculous.
Your spin on the husband's intent is also ridiculous. You're not in his head, stop pretending you know what he, or his wife do/would think, Arrogant One.
Okay, go back to the Terry Schiavo case where her husband said she wanted to die and her parents said she wanted to live. Do we believe the parents who have loved her all her life or the husband who has a girlfriend and wants to remarry? Hard to be sure of anyone else's motives.

I don't expect you to have an opinion but someone else will.

Uh huh.

Of course my opinion is relevant. To me It has nothing to do with Mrs. Munoz, or her situation. Neither does yours.

Who we believe is also irrelevant. It's who was the next of kin, and so has the authority to speak for her. That was her husband. Just like it was the husband in the link YOU provided. Just like it was the husband in the Munoz case.

After 15 years, it can hardly be expected that he would want to be alone. Where is your empathy? Oh, that's right, you have none. You're a vile piece of crap. It's very clear you've never lost a spouse, that's for sure. Consider yourself lucky.

No it isn't and it is usually a secret and a good idea to keep it to yourself.

Unfortunately for her it was her husband. Being a parent, I have empathy for them. If I put myself in their position with my daughter's life in the hands of someone ready to move on, I would have fought as hard as they did. What people do out of love is more honorable than what they do for convenience.

"You're a vile piece of crap" That is about as deep as you can get on meaningful comentary.

I do feel lucky that I don't have your brain or attitude..

You should take your own advice though. At least I'm not advocating everyone must act according to my own personally held beliefs, like you, you control freak.

You have no empathy. Your concern is for your own feelings, not theirs. That has become increasingly clear.

Again, if you had empathy, or knew anything about the grief of losing a spouse, you'd know that 15 years is not to soon to be "ready to move on".

There was nothing to fight FOR. She was in a persistent vegetative states.

You don't have any brains. And I'm THRILLED to be nothing like you, Witless.

No my feelings are for them. It isn't up to you to decide if they should have fought. It is clear that you don't understand their pain. Feel lucky that you haven't lost a child because she was in someone's way.

OH...now it is the body that is offering life support??? What happens when the brain does not wish to go along with the plan of the body? I guess you go to a doctor and have it corrected just as when the body offers itself up to illness the brain takes it to the doctor..

You are insane and about as fanatic as one can get.

Not judging by your posts, they aren't. You're very self-centered.

"It isn't up to you to decide if they should have fought."

Where did I say that?

I know it's hard for you, Witless, but do try to pay attention to what is actually being said.

I made two points, that in Schiavo's case there was nothing to fight FOR, and that in ALL cases where there is no written directive, the next of kin has the authority to make the decision.

"It is clear that you don't understand their pain."

Of course I understand it. I never said otherwise. YOU are the one who is unable to empathize.

"Feel lucky that you haven't lost a child because she was in someone's way."

Neither did they.

Of course. When have I ever indicated otherwise?

YOU are the one who has a problem understanding that the same holds true for YOU.....YOUR opinion is relevant solely to you.

No one else is obligated to agree with, or live by, EITHER of our opinions.

Damn, you're dumb.

Again YOU are deciding that they had nothing to fight for. They saw it differently. The next of kin had a conflict of interests. They did in fact lose their child due to someone else's need to be rid of her.
