A Texas hospital removed a 14-week pregnant, brain-dead woman from life support Sunday following a judge’s Friday orders.

John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth was given until 5 p.m. Monday to remove Marlise Munoz from life support, a ruling which her husband Erick Munoz says she would have wanted.

Munoz found his wife unconscious Nov. 26, possibly due to a blood clot.

The case has sparked debates among pro-life and pro-choice groups about end-of-life care for pregnant women.

I really understood the meaning of the DJ and artists crews from your presentation in class. You explained the importance of this relationship, the way you use each other as support, as well as a tool to keep the crowd’s attention. http://www.whatismyresults.in/

This is a private family matter and tasteless to talk about.

"Tasteless"?  Really?  Are your sensibilities THAT fragile?

No one would have talked about it at all had the woman's wishes been followed in the first place.  The "tastelessness" was on the part of the state government to pass laws that mandate dead people be kept on full artificial life support purely as incubators for a fetus.

And that, I believe, exemplifies the rightist's view of the totality of a woman's only "proper" role in life.  Given the way they treat them, there is no other explanation.
