    Is there a family petitioning to keep this woman alive also willing to adopt the baby? Failing that are the people championing keeping this fetus alive also going to set up a fund to pay for life expenses until the fetus turns 18?
    Her family is on the husband's side in the lawsuit, so I don't think so.

    On the basis of your logic, if you're married with children and your spouse dies, you should be able to round up all the children and either kill them or let them fend for themselves because you shouldn't have to raise and pay for them yourself.

I suppose if she had specifically addressed this situation in some kind of document that it could take precedent over the wishes of the husband.

    This is one of those marriage rights that so many people keep fighting over.

    Lobbying? It's already the law.

    As far as paying for the kid's medical bill, you know, it's funny, but I don't recall having sex with Mrs. Munoz. Parents are responsible for their kids' expenses.

    A corpse cannot offer consent. Why should it be assumed in this case, if it is not assumed in the case of organ donors?

    She's dead. At this point you honor her wishes in life by removing her from the machines as soon as possible and by making sure her remains are disposed of how she would have liked, make sure that her property is bequeathed as she would have liked. That's about it. That's all you can do for her.
    They could let her die as she would have wished. Why does the end of her pregnancy suddenly mean there's a DNR? If there's no directive, at what point do you turn it off? Why is she worth nothing more than to be an incubator?

    Nope, but you do support them keeping her alive which costs money. So yeah, you and others should foot the bill.

    The mother and father. Which is now impossible.

    Wow you really jumped onto all kinds of logical fallacies here.

    Who's going to take care of the fetus is a legitimate question. Seeing as how you're conservative I'm sure you're against the state doing so and so am I.

    So because he had sex with her, he's responsible to keep the kid alive forever? What if the child is born needing life support to stay alive? He should have to pay for that forever?
