But the failed case by the hospital is that the statute requires them to keep the fetus alive until viability. NONSENSE. That's a pro-life hospital administrator trying to get around abortion rights.
the contention is that it goes against RvW
i mean theres been no ruling on this so we'd have to see, its only my opinion but this is why i want this to go to court
i cant see any way to justify it in this case and say it doesnt go against rights and RvW.
The hospital wasn't wrong - the prognosis for the fetus changed, and therefore their position on application of the law changed.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
2.) Her decision is to not revive her which would end her pregnancy, her choice.
also she has a husband, who by law is her, they are one, he is also the father and their is family
i still see zero justification for this law and i cant imagine any reason for it to hold up once challenged and it to be found worthy of violating RvW and other rights.
also dead people do have some rights, well, or at least laws that protect them. abusing your dead body is a crime, after you die if you had a request for your body to be treated in a way according to your religion and i just came along and through it in the wood chipper thats a crime too.
At JPS, we deliver over 6,000 babies a year - approximately 20% of all deliveries in Tarrant County. Our obstetrical program offers a wealth of amenities to help make childbirth a wonderful and positive experience.
Maternity services at JPS begin long before the day of delivery. Parenthood is about much more than giving birth, and JPS offers unique prenatal services to help new mothers prepare for the arrival of a new family member and ensure that every child born at JPS has the best possible start in life.
JPS is among the first in the region to become a designated Centering Pregnancy center, offering women the opportunity to receive expanded prenatal care under a new model thatís been tied to better birth outcomes. Expectant mothers in Centering Pregnancy prepare for motherhood in a small group setting, enjoying the benefits extended time with nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers, as well as the support of other new mothers. At JPS, the goal is that every pregnant woman begin receiving prenatal care by the 13th week of pregnancy, and women in Centering Pregnancy meet at least weekly until their babies are born.
In addition, JPS promotes newborn sleep safety through the promotion of Safe to Sleep patient education. Focused on safe sleep habits for newborns, the program is shared with new parents through discharge teaching in the hospital and through its Centering Pregnancy prenatal groups.
