I didn't say there shouldn't be any laws. Laws should be set forth and then the government should step aside rather than constantly interfering with the following of those laws.
I believe a spouse should have the say over medical matters concerning their spouse. Unfortunately, even when folks go through the trouble of having Living Wills and such made out, which are supposed to be legally binding documents, there are cases where some government worker interferes and decides they know better than those directly involved.
I'm sorry John but your first statement just doesn't make sense.
The laws should be there but shouldn't be Enforced? That is what you appear to be saying.
Someone else nailed it when they related this choice to abortion.
If the child will continue to grow while the mother is in this state, then it becomes murder of the child.
No father, under any circumstances should be allowed to murder his own child.
The authorities SHOULD step in to stop this crime.
(They should also stop abortion, but won't).
This is no longer about the wife - as hard as it is for the husband (horrendous I would imagine), the child should be allowed to live if at all possible, and the law should step in to protect the child who cannot protect itself.
