    While I am forever erring on the side of saving the baby, this doesn't sound good. If it's true, and the baby does have such severe abnormalities, it won't survive to term, anyway, and this entire argument will be moot.
    It sounds even worse than I'd feared. Nothing good ever comes out of a fetus being deprived of oxygen for even a few minutes, let alone an hour or more. I'm not normally in favor of abortion after the 12th week, except in cases like this. If these reports are true, it's time to end this madness.

    And how is that, in any way, a response to she pronounced legally dead in November?

I assume the hospital attorney is going to simply stick to the earlier statement and not get engaged in any way in the public debate, just say the law is what it is and not engage in any moralizing or speculation - this way, either way this plays out in court, they won't be seen as the bad guys.

    The family's lawyers can be assumed to, in a public statement, be promoting their client's case and that includes "massaging" the truth like upgrading speculative information to facts or grand exaggerations.
    No one is "upgrading" the facts. They come from the medical records on the fetus.

    Well, I sure am glad the baby will be born! Because of course quality of life should never be a consideration when making decisions like this! Life is all that matters!

    ... and 30 seconds after the birth falls off the front page, everybody will have forgotten about it, except for the man whose job it will be to figure out how to make this kid's life worthshile.

    YAY!
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Why do you think I said she is alive?

    Then please clarify yourself. What does it can be both mean?
