    Sounds to me like someone in the Hospital chain of command is an anti-abortion, or at least bowing to that pressure.

    Husband has the legal right to 'pull the plug' on his wife, he also has that right to the 20 week old fetus.
    Simply monstrous.

    Again, it would be against the law for them to remove life support and kill the kid. They don't have to be pro-life to give a damn about the law, but it certainly helps.

    Her directive stated she wanted to be taken off life support while pregnant?

    I think you need to take this argument back to the drawing board.

    Think of the woman as the dead landscape after the volcanic eruption and the baby in her womb as the life under the ash struggling to continue living.

    Hey, that's a good line of debate. How about this one: In you want the baby dead so bad why don't you go run a sword through it!

    This is very productive.

    Life has value whether or not I have the means to raise it as my own.

    No, it stated that she did not want life support. She is now on life support. It's not a difficult concept to understand.

    Knowing a few transplant recipients I'd argue they pretty much are.

    I thought she was already dead, according to you.

    Again, one patient is dead, the other is not.

    The goal of medical triage is to save the patients you can save.

    One patient cannot be saved, the other can. It makes no sense to be pushing for both patients to die.

    That's the problem though. Some people refuse to accept the fact the the baby in the womb is alive and worthy of saving.
