SHE didn't elect for her son to be an organ donor. HE already had. SHE was going by his wishes, UNLIKE the hospital and judge in the other case, who IGNORED the woman's wishes as stated by all of her next of kin.
Sorry I thought her child was a minor. I know Mrs Munoz's wishes for herself but we don't know her wishes for her child.

She never said she wanted her child to die. You are assuming that she did want her child to die with her. Nobody knows what her wishes for her child were.
What she said was that she never wanted to be kept alive by machines. YOU are the one ASSuming, Ass, not I.

What child? There was a fetus.

You're ignoring the point. Her wishes were known on the subject of being kept alive by machine.

She never said her"fetus" shouldn't be kept alive. She never said ' even if I am pregnant I don't want to be kept alive until my child can be born.' So we don't know her wishes for her child. A 'fetus' is an unborn child.

Unless she was pregnant when she said it, we don't know her wishes for her child.

No, a fetus is a potential child.

She never said the fetus should be kept alive at all costs.

She didn't HAVE to say anything other than what she did, as it was her wish to NEVER be kept alive on machines. Given that she KNEW she was pregnant, if that had been a factor in her wishes, wouldn't she have said so?

You know for a fact that she DIDN'T reiterate her wishes at the time?

If it had made a difference to her, why assume she wouldn't say so when she KNEW she was pregnant?

Electing for her son to be an organ donor is commendable but how is using his organs to save a life any different from using her organs to save a life?
We had my son's permission - the State of Texas did not have Mrs. Munoz' permission.

Big difference.

Her son being kept alive for the purpose of saving anothers life(a stranger mind you) is somehow commendable , but a woman kept alive , who is carrying her child, is barbaric. Playa said she was being "flogged".

A pregnant woman IS using her body to give her child life. That's a fact.

Making wishes known that you don't want to be hooked up to artificial life support after a serious situation is one thing. Being pregnant was a different scenerio all together. Unless she specified that, her child deserved a chance. Playas son thought strangers deserved a chance using his brain dead body. He sounds nothing like his mom (God rest his soul).

Yes it makes no sense. I don't know any mom, thank goodness, who wouldn't want to give their child a chance at life.

A newborn is a potential teenager.

Again, a fetus is a stage of life, just like a teenager is. A pregnant woman is carrying her child. Now go get your dictionary and look it up.

kthanks you ignorant fool.

Wrong. Unless she stated otherwise, what she'd said already should have been the deciding factor.

If she had changed her mind, wouldn't she have said if it was important to her? After all, she knew she was pregnant.

The hospital should have gone by her wishes, as expressed by her next of kin.

If she HAD said that being pregnant changed her mind on the subject, and the hospital had ignored that, you'd be outraged. So spare us your nonsense.

No, it was a misinterpretation of the law that hospital administrators made.

Yes, a newborn is a potential teenager. But it's not a teenager yet.

Yes, fetus is a stage.

No, a pregnant woman is pregnant with an embryo or fetus, a potential child.

Can't find any deffinition that says potential. I think you made that up and expect others to believe it.
