    Well Im involved in a situation where young woman overdosed at 8 weeks of pregnancy. She didn't have the proper level of oxygen for over four hours low blood sugar the works. She was on life support for 2 1/2 months then medical coma due to her seizures. She is now vegetation state but is not in medical coma anymore. Breathes on her own. The miracle the baby is now 11 months old and perfect! We have adopted her and helping care for birth mom too. I wish this husband could see this babies face it might bring Hope in this dark time.

    The woman's desire not to be on life support probably meant for an indefinite period of time. I can't help but wonder if she would want her baby to have a chance at life if she could express her wishes.

There exists some validity but Let me take hold opinion until I look into it further. Excellent post , thanks and then we want a good deal far more! Included in FeedBurner at exactly the same time
