    So in other words, you can't quote the exact law. Got it.

    That is the main issue for me. The woman's dead body is maintained against the will of her next of kin and family. The law seems to talk about life sustaining measures being withdrawn. The are (OF COURSE) speaking to the pregnant dead woman. But you cannot sustain her life she is DEAD.

    If the family wanted to fight for keeping her body supported to maintain the pregnancy, that would be another issue.

    You do not know what law is being used in this case?

    Show us the text of the law that states a dead body is to be maintained for months to support a pregnancy against the next of kin's wishes.

    Why would I need to show that?

    To support your "point"

    Show the "experts" are wrong. But my guess is you do not care if they are right or wrong - but the truth matters to me.

    Yes, please refute the experts.

    And since you have not provided the law that indicates that dead people may be forced to stay on machines against the expressed demands of the next of kin, you have given us your answer
