    A view on which we can agree - well done.

    I have a question. If the baby is delivered as a "superpremie" with complex catastrophic medical issues...and the father wanted care withdrawn(option given to him by MD), would you support his decision?

    Well one valid question at that point would be why was the kid delivered so early when he or she is fine where he or she is for right now?

    I don't know who came up with the 35 state figure as the number of states that automatically invalidate a pregnant woman's advance health care directive. but this atrticle says Texas is one 12 states.

    Texas is one of 12 states across a wide political spectrum that automatically invalidate a pregnant woman's advance health care directive.
    The others are: Alabama, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, South Carolina, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin, according to a 2012 report by the Center for Women Policy Studies, an advocacy group that supports abortion rights.

    The same article points out that :Experts say it does not apply in this case.



    The Texas Advance Directives Act reads in part that, "A person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment under this subchapter from a pregnant patient."

    But experts say the hospital is incorrectly applying the statute because Munoz is brain-dead and beyond any chance of recovery.

    "This patient is neither terminally nor irreversibly ill," said Dr. Robert Fine, clinical director of the office of clinical ethics and palliative care for Baylor Health Care System, in an interview earlier this month. "Under Texas law,
    this patient is legally dead."

    Proud as I am that we are one of the good guys on this issue, scan back through the thread, it was already posted if you care.

    What I recall from the link was that a lot of states don't even have legal policy for this situation.

    UPDATE:

    A hearing is scheduled for this Friday.

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A different judge will consider a North Texas man’s request to remove his pregnant, brain-dead wife from life support at a hospital.

    A hearing has been scheduled Friday before state District Judge R.H. Wallace in Fort Worth in the case of Marlise Munoz (moon-YOHZ’).

    Why would I need to do that? The law refers to DNRs not being relevant to pregnant women.

    because they two dont match hence your statement is a complete failure like it has been for pages. This obvious fact wont change especially when it spurred from the statement that suggested that THIS state is using the law and twisting it for THIS situation. so the other states dont matter unless they did the exact same thing lol

    youll have to show ever single other state you mention doing the same thing and then discuss the characteristics of that case vs. this one, at least thats how honest conversation worthy or merit takes places.

    once again facts defeat your post
