    Again, you have failed to show us the law that says that it applies to a dead person. We have looked and we have not found the information. Unless you have such information, the law does not apply to a dead person.

    I agree. I wish them all the best under these horrible circumstances. But to have a major circulatory collapse and loss of oxygen to the point you are brain dead at 14 weeks gestation? Does not bode well for the fetus.

    You AGAIN miss the point. There is no resuscitating a legally dead person.













    re·sus·ci·tate verb \ri-ˈsə-sə-ˌtāt\

    : to bring (someone who is unconscious, not breathing, or close to death) back to a conscious or active state again
    There is NO resuscitation for her. She is DEAD.

    They are keeping a corpse on a ventilator - NOT RESUSCITATING HER. Unless you think magically she can come back to life.

    Resuscitating means attempting to bring the person back to live. Are you saying she has a remote possibility of being brought back to life??

    The are NOT resuscitating. The are keeping a corpse on a ventilator against the wishes of the next of kin to act as a vessel.

    NOT RESUSCITATING.

    No they are not. She is not alive. Are you saying brain dead people are alive?

    But they are, that is what kind of equipment they are using. This is not up for debate.

    Her life is not sustained. She is dead.

    That is not up for debate.

    DEAD. Not PVS. Not comatose, DEAD! Her life is not sustained.
