so sad...

I am very firmly in the pro-choice camp. I also think that this father is making the right choice. link to article

I would hope that if I slipped into an irreversible coma, was likely to die soon, and was 17 weeks pregnant, my family would do the same and do all that they could (medically and spiritually) to keep me alive until the child could be delivered safely.

Cynic alert: I bet congress ignores this story altogether.

Hmmm, I was unfamiliar with this story. I wish them well. A healthy baby would be a great legacy for the mother.

This saga is taking place very close to where we live. Sweetie and I hope that this baby is delivered unto her loving family. And I am pro-choice, too.

Someone will step forward and say that there is hope for the mother after the birth of the child and that the mother should not be removed from life support after the birth...trust me, it will happen.
