I don't see how this is fair?
With the Terri Schiavo case, we have two interest at war - the husband and the family. But in the case of 5-month-old Sun Hudson, the only interest was his mother and the hospital was allowed to remove him from life support against her wishes after a judge ruled against her.
Sun may not have ever gotten off the ventilator and may have died in the next few days, weeks or months regardless, but how does a hospital or government have the right to end a life?
For those of you (Sam) who support the right-to-death, what do you think about this case? The baby clearly could not speak for himself, but the mother could and she wanted the baby to live.
i don't see how this is right or fair. How does the hospital get to decide? What limitations do they have? This is very troubling to me.
