    The pregnant woman already died with dignity. This thread is about protecting an unborn life.

    Kind of late to be talking about that, as she's already dead. Once the kid's safe, the machines will be turned off.

    Shouldn't some of ya'll be in the abortion folder?
    You're the one bringing up abortion. year2late did that too a few posts ago, and I was pointing out its irrelevance to the topic at hand.

    The mom didn't kill her kid. Whatever we may think about it, she could have if she wanted to, and she didn't. Too late now.... hence me saying... irrelevant.

    Do you remember the conjoined at the head twins that were delivered and separated some time ago? The Mother was Salvadoran I do believe.

    The last picture that I saw had the toddlers wearing cute helmets that were going to be changed for harder helmets later. Those boys must be teenagers now. Where are the pictures of how they look as nice young men?

    Perhaps this is what you're referring to: Formerly conjoined Guatemalan twin girls turn 10 - Worldnews.com

    Two young girls, formerly conjoined twins, who as infants/toddlers had a 23 hour operation and have now survived and are thriving as pre-teens.

    It's a damn shame, isn't it, when they could have just been suctioned out of their mother's womb and flushed to make some people feel "dignified".

    No, it was two boys.

    I don't think those girls were head conjoined. They were also older when the operation was performed.

    OK, they were head conjoined.

    Keeping a dead woman attached to machines to have nursing staff turn her frequently, cleanse her every several hours of urine and/or feces...poke her dead body for laboratory tests, feed her with a tube , maintain IV's.........that is a dignified death? After a dignified death, a family is able to pick up the pieces, grieve, and move on. Good Lord. Dignified???Attahed to machines after death against her expressed wishes??? Please, dignified?

    You think they do not have the waste being deposited away from her body?

    According to current guidelines, foley catheters (bladder tube)are a no no for strictly "ease of nursing care". They promote infection. If they want to make her more prone to bladder infection, they will keep it in. As to stool, if she is having diarrhea, she can have a rectal tube. But the rectal tube does not completely prevent soiling.

    By the way, do you think having her dead body turned back and forth cleansed of urine and excrement, with tubes and machines to sustain her dead body is dignified? It might be what you have to go through to recover for an illness, and nursing staff does their best to be as discreet and respectful as possible.....but after death....if you think of the dead woman's wishes.....clearly what she did not want if she were alive and comatose...let alone DEAD!!!!!

    You already admitted this is not the case.
