    unfortunately sueing is faster, more effective and gets more attention

    I am thinking that the law is being misinterpreted by the hospital (and many others). The law was intended (right or wrong) to keep living people on life support until the child is born. The woman is dead.

    So even less the contention, yes?

Could it be that you just simply support "control" rather than choice? Seems not too long ago the fashionable scenario in feminist circles was to claim that pretty soon men wouldn't be needed - are you afraid that it may come full circle and women won't be needed?
    I was making a sarcastic comment about science and how it dabbles too much in what is the natural process of life and death.

    When the ability of the doctors and medicine surpasses nature *and* violates the individuals personal views and decisions - it's crossed the line.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Would you want your dead body hooked up to machines for months? Making a grieving process for your friends and family excruciating/torturous??

    I'm dead, what would I care? A body is just an inanimate object once the human inside it dies. If there is another human life inside of it and can be brought to term by keeping a body warm for a bit, there's really no real contention. Life vs. death, I'd side with life.
