It's time the law recognize that a fetus is not an independent person
deserving of protection, but a biological entity that is intimately connected to
the mother's physiological, mental and emotional state until it is born and
cut off from the mother's body by the severing of the umbilical cord.A dead body cannot incubate a healthy fetus, and this kind of high-tech
medical intervention is the equivalent of Dr. Frankenstein's experiments.
If you read the study mentioned, it was actually 30 brain dead pregnant women
and 12 successful births.The primary considerations are age of the
fetus and lung development.The fetal age at the time of the
mother's brain death appears to be borderline for success of the pregnancy
and the child's survival. The additional problems associated with this
fetus reduce the risk of the child surviving to delivery let alone beyond.What a hard situation.
