    There is obviously a great deal of difference between the two cases, between Texas and Canada, and between 14 weeks and 22 weeks gestation. I went round and round about this case over on liveaction with an anti-choicer to whom I needed to point out the obvious. 1) This woman was 22 weeks pregnant, not 14 weeks. 2) In Canada. the grieving husband is not going to be bankrupted by medical bills. 3) And most importantly, in the Canada case, there was consent.

      The only thing I can see against the Canadian case is that we don’t know if that would have been her choice. However, in the lack of directives, I think her family are the ones best able to make that call.

        Exactly. The next of kin makes the decision for someone who can’t.

        The anti-choice tend never to listen to reason or logic. You can tell them over and over that a fetus that was 14 weeks along when its mother died is not going to become a healthy baby, and they still won’t listen. Heck, I was going round and round on another site, and one idiot thought that Munoz could recover. I had to explain that she was DEAD.

      And here in Canada, there is a passionate and very numerous voting public that doesn’t want legislation controlling the medical decisions we make about our reproductive organs and functions, ever again. No matter how much the current federal government is motivated by right-wing Christian evangelicalism, and its view on anti-choice politics–it hasn’t been able to say or do anything about it.
