    I don't doubt that - but is it the optimal process or simply a matter of best option under the circumstances?

    Ariel wasn't brain dead, only PVS and I still think that was wrong.

    Do you take the same position for all humans who need other humans to assist and protect them from time to time? The homeless person on a street corner in winter - just leave him to freeze to death, right, because that's what nature would do. How about someone who has a heart attack or stroke - just let them live or die on their own devices? How about a premature baby, who needs incubation for a time until he/she more fully develops - just toss them on a table and let them survive or die by their own natural means? Or is it just those unfortunate enough not to escape the womb in time for human intervention?

    I don't disagree - I made the point in regards to a poster who claimed the woman would basically rot on life support - I simply wanted to point out that life support for 3 or 4 months to save the life of her child won't cause the woman's body such harm.

    Unfathomable? It's what the woman wanted. How is that hard to fathom?

    You have no proof of this claim.

    I don't think that this healthy young woman ever thought she'd have an aneurysm at 33 while pregnant.
