    What are you on about now with organ donors? Please explain so I can tell you why it doesn't apply.

    They could let her die as she would have wished.
    No, they couldn't have done that.

    Why does the end of her pregnancy suddenly mean there's a DNR?
    It doesn't. There is, however, the fact that she is dead and no amount of life-saving care is going to fix that.

    Yes, and that bill goes to Mr. Munoz and his insurer.

    It's not a 'kid', its a fetus.

    Did she consent to donating her uterus?







    It doesn't. There is, however, the fact that she is dead and no amount of life-saving care is going to fix that.
    That's the case now. Your case is that she should be used as an incubator without her consent.

    Feel free to keep your bigotry to yourself; I'm already using age-neutral terms like "kid" for a reason.

    He is the father, why shouldn't he pay for medical expenses related to pregnancy?

    Just because he doesn't wanna?

    Should the "But I don't wanna" excuse work for born kids, too?

    He did up until natural law would have dictated the fetus dying. Keeping her on artificial life support is not related to pregnancy.

    You mean the state is violating the "freedom" of someone else? Democrats.
