    You keep abusing that phrase.

    If you want to talk about natural law, then I will counter - by natural law, the kid is alive and has a right to life.

    Without medical care lots of people would die from lots of different things.

    If disease or injury had claimed the kid's life, the kid would be dead, but it didn't and he didn't.

    If you starve or suffocate someone they will die, that's true. One assumes that is what you mean when you say "natural law." Might makes right stupidity.

    Keeping her on artificial life support is not related to pregnancy.
    Yes, providing medical care for his kid is an expense related to pregnancy.

    Also, as already explained to you, there is nothing artificial about any of this from the kid's perspective.

    Did Democrats pass this law? Do they control the Texas legislature? How about the governor who signed it, was he a Democrat?

    Seriously, go and research the answers to these questions and get back to us.

    Yes for a reason. Liberals such as yourself are always playing political games.

    Born children can be put up for adoption. Do you plan on adopting this fetus?

    I didn't know that life support systems sprung up in nature. Do kangaroos and jaguars use them?

    Is the fetus considered a zombie?

    Naturally, the kid would die. Sucks, but it's true. That is nature, you are arguing against nature. We let people decide when they've had enough treatment in any other case.



    Yes, providing medical care for his kid is an expense related to pregnancy.

    Also, as already explained to you, there is nothing artificial about any of this from the kid's perspective.
    Life support on the woman is not an expense related to pregnancy. It's an expense related to keeping her alive and using her as an incubator.

    No, it's not. His kid, his bill.

    Born children can be put up for adoption.
    That's true. At that point he doesn't have to actually raise the kid. Up until that point, he's on the hook.

    Given that he is on record saying that he wants the hospital to perform an action that will kill this kid... which is pretty yikes, by the way... if he doesn't recant from that awful position, it would probably be for the best if he wasn't in this kid's life.

    No, but I think if you're going to blame Democrats you should see who's responsible for it.

    Again, if I starve you or suffocate you, so will you. Go nature? Woo.

    By your standard, hospitals ain't natural. Let all disease run its course, the strong will survive, or something like that.

    Life support on the woman is not an expense related to pregnancy.
    The life support is not for the dead patient. It's for the kid.

    I realize, of course, that you don't think the kid matters and that he or she doesn't even count as a patient. I don't share your selective misanthropy, however.
