    Even if she was pregnant?

    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.
    I'm not pushing for anyone to die. I'm pushing for allowing natural law to take effect. If they take her off life support and she lives long enough to give birth, wonderful. Nature isn't always nice. :shrug

    Are you being obtuse, or do you really not understand the question? Did the woman really want to be taken off life support if pregnant? Was it specified? Did she tell her husband that? Had her husband even claimed that she wanted that?

    The 'fetus' is not really any of their business if the family doesnt want it to be. It seems like they may have a legal obligation due to TX health insurance laws. Policies, guidelines? Dont know.

    Let's assume for a second that it doesn't specify one way or the other. The rest of it should be ignored because it gives you the warm fuzzies?

    methinks you are probably spot on.

    Ask the husband if he believes she wanted that.

    Since he's not happy that the hospital is keeping her alive, I'm going to assume that he would say yes. Now do you think that she should be kept alive to give all the pro-life folks the warm fuzzies?

    I'm guessing the directive didn't specifically state anything about an embolism either.
