TuteTibiImperes: Apparently brain activity makes a difference in both how someone's body holds up and on the development of a fetus inside of it.
GWSuperfan: *Ctrl+F "Axlotl Tank"**0 Results*Fark, I am dissapoint.
Pointy Tail of Satan: This sets a rather scary precedent, seeing there are so many other brain-dead people in Texas.
minarke: (Tell Death Due Us Part)
bigbobowski: it's funny that there are a group of people in this country who only care that you are born, don't give a living sh*t about your welfare while your alive, and then won't even grant you a dignified death./Terri Schiavo
another cultural observer: JoieD'Zen: FarkingHateFark: TheDirtyNacho: Thank goodness.As with the last thread about this, I'll point out this one in bold.This was not following the law of the state of Texas. In Texas, a brain dead person is legally dead and the rules regarding preserving the life of a comatose mother so her fetus can come to term does not apply. Indeed, her body was a decaying corpse. The hospital chose this ghoulish course of action as a crusade by a zealous anti-abortion man who is the General Counsel of the hospital.Last week the judge drawing the case out recused herself when it became known that her campaign treasurer was the same man.Holy shiat, you're right. How was this not published from the rooftops?http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2014/01/16/22330010-texas-judge-recu se s-herself-from-lawsuit-over-brain-dead-pregnant-woman?liteThis is one of the most horrific stories I've read in a long time and finding out about the Judge's financial ties was the icing on this stinking, goddamn festering urinal cake of a situation.That man has been tortured and those heartless cocksuckers will most likely try to bankrupt him to pay for this.The entire situation is barbaric.Because when you think about bankruptcy, judicial corruption, and conniving hospital administrators, the first image that comes to mind is of an illiterate, filth-caked savage bludgeoning a nun to death with the leg of the horse he just raped.
Earpj: JuggleGeek: So I guess the husband will get a bill from the hospital in a week or two.Nah. Takes about a month.
gja: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Sin_City_Superhero: Michelle Bachman is on life support in Texas?Good news - an aisle seat in first class opened up just now! XD/lolDon't be stupid, she has no brain.
