    Red herring. Come back when you have something important to say.

    From the kid's perspective, there's nothing "artificial" about it.

    The kid is alive.

    Based on the information available the baby has a heartbeat. Beyond that we don't know much of anything.

All she's being used for right now is to incubate a baby, to give it a fighting chance. We keep people on life support for organ donation - why not to save a baby? Saving a life is saving a life.
    If the mother is dead then why not respect the wish's of the dead and allow her to rest in peace. putting her body on life support may keep the baby alive but is only extending the mothers tortured existence.

    No, it doesn't. This isn't about abortion.

    I don't think you know what "ad hom" means.
