Subject: just a few questions
In reply to: Chuck in ND 's message, "I know this is going to really get me in trouble" on 13:31:02 03/24/05 Thu

what if the baby was in a persistent vegetative state?
Would it be ok to stop all food and water? or if the doctors through test could tell that while the baby would surive birth would be in a persistent vegetative state, would it be ok to abort the baby?

I dont know...this just feels wrong. I can see withholding Resuscitation if her heart were to stop...that would be in Gods hands(if he wanted her couldnt he just do that?)...you know just let her go. Or if she needed a bunch of different surgeries. But to withhold food and water? We dont kill those on death row like that.
All she needs to live is her feeding tube. I would think to take her feeding tube from her is murder or at the very least a form of doctor assisted suiside.
If it is her time to go then she will go with out anyone forcing her to go...which in my mind taking her feeding tube away is.

I would hate to be in this situation but I would hate to be held responsible for taking a life.
IMHO if Heavenly Father wants her home...her heart would just stop,...well it might now that she is starving to death, dont the heart sometimes just give out?

I'm not sure those who want her to die have an evil intent, but then those who beleave in abortion dont have an evil intent many times, they just feel that the baby would be better off...which of course I dont agree with.

All the way around this is a very very very difficult horrible situation.
I would not want to be in her shoes but then I would not want my loved ones held accountable for taking my life if it wasnt my time to go yet either...just a very very tough situation.

I wish her well and god speed.
