Husband wants to pull the plug on pregnant wife

This is why when you get married get a will/trust durable POA etc so you DO have a say.

Good advice but it sounds like in this case in Texas it wouldn't matter since the baby's rights overrule the mother's.

This is so sad.  I do not see how anybody can support the cruel actions of the state here.

I would say so. Anytime the government decides they can step in and start making decisions disregarding the recognized legal  personal choices of individuals is an overreach.

 

And for those of you who will undoubtedly use the "what about the rights of the unborn child..." argument, here's my take:

  • The unborn child has no rights until it is born, a birth certificate is issued declaring it a citizen and officially recognizing the child as a family member.
  • The unborn child has no more rights than you did as a few days old and having medical procedures done without your consent, such as circumcision, immunizations, etc.
  • As a child, you have no rights regarding any part of your life until you are no longer a minor.

Sorry, blast away if you must, my opinion and it's not been swayed in nearly 45 years...

This is an intensely personal family decision made under terrible circumstances that the government is involved in that affects just the family and is done for the sole purpose of placating voters that will never face the same situation. What do you think?

I agree. How did the government even know to get involved in this? It's a personal family decision being made. Who violated patient/doctor confidentiality and HIPAA by disclosing this?

I understand your point about it being a family matter. But the fact that an 18 week old unborn fetus is involved certainly complicates the matter.

A child has the right to life and safety....that is not given nor taken away from them by their parents.
