    Brain function from loss of oxygen cannot be detected by an ultrasound.

    Many babies who were deprived oxygen for more than a couple of minutes are born with cerebral paisley .

    Yes, I saw post 316, the odds look ****ty. Giving "the baby" a chance is basically playing mad scientist with what is surely going to be a heart breaking situation for the father.

    That doesn't even make sense as a reply. Par for the course. Come back to the forum once you graduate from HS.

    That was my point as well. How they came to being brain dead has absolute bearing on how the fetus develops. And to be certain, damage may not appear on maternal tests.

    If the kid is born retarded then at least it'll happen in Texas where nobody would notice anyway.
