今天TW上看一篇报道,title很attractive,但是点进去发现没怎么明白.....
Brain-Dead Woman Forced to Stay on Life Support Because She’s Pregnant
大致意思是说在德州一个孕妇还了Brain Death,但是TX law规定forbids removing a woman from life support if she is pregnant,但是
1.Her family wants to remove the ventilator keeping her body alive, but there's a hitch. Marlise Munoz was 14 weeks pregnant at the time of her collapse. Texas, where the Munozes live, is one of the 12 states in the country that forbids removing a woman from life support if she is pregnant.
家里要求移除呼吸机,那两个不都死了吗?看文章的大意大概是家里人和husband想要她go to sleep quiet....(为什么放弃治疗?前些天看一个小女孩被宣布脑死亡,不还是转移医院在治疗吗)还是想二选一,让宝宝活下来,可是这也太奇葩了,母亲死了,孩子怎么活下来.鏈枃鍘熷垱鑷1point3acres璁哄潧

passage:
                                                             Taking a family member off life support is never an easy decision, but it's what Erick Munoz believes his wife, Marlise, who worked as a paramedic, wanted. Marlise collapsed right before Thanksgiving, likely because of a blood clot in her lungs, and was pronounced brain dead from lack of oxygen at the hospital. Her family wants to remove the ventilator keeping her body alive, but there's a hitch. Marlise Munoz was 14 weeks pregnant at the time of her collapse. Texas, where the Munozes live, is one of the 12 states in the country that forbids removing a woman from life support if she is pregnant. -google 1point3acres

                                                                                                                          Marlise Munoz and her husband are just the latest victims caught in the crossfire of abortion politics. Mandating that pregnant women stay on life support regardless of their wishes is a neat and easy way to establish the claim that the state has an interest in fetal life, even at the earliest stages, that overrides a pregnant woman's basic human rights. After all, brain death during pregnancy is incredibly rare, making these laws more symbolic in nature than pragmatic. If your goal is to legally enshrine the notion that pregnant women are incubators first and humans second, keeping their bodies alive to grow babies long after their minds are gone is a perfect way to do it. . 1point 3acres 璁哄潧

                                                                                                         Of course, rare doesn't mean impossible, as Marlise Munoz's family is discovering. "All we want is to let her rest, to let her go to sleep," Munoz's father, Ernest Machado, told the Dallas Morning News. "What they’re doing serves no purpose." The family reasonably fears that the loss of oxygen that was enough to destroy Marlise Munoz's brain probably did serious damage to her fetus.

                                                             To make it worse, by going public with their story, Munoz's family is being treated to a heavy dose of vicious anti-choice rhetoric. Erick Munoz has been the subject of ugly speculation online, with anti-choice commenters eagerly suggesting that he simply wants to "get rid" of his wife. The reality, however, is that by holding Marlise Munoz in this state, her family is not being allowed to lay her to rest and start the grieving process properly. Laws like this need to be overturned.

这篇文章的大致意思就是,一个孕妇脑死亡了,她家人希望能够把呼吸机等抢救设备拆下来,这样她就会死去,她家人认为这样她就可以安息了,而且认为这应该是她自己希望的。但是因为她是孕妇,有法律规定禁止撤掉维持孕妇生命的呼吸机,所以她家人的要求无法实现。而那个法律名义上是为了保护胎儿的利益(因为孕妇死了,胎儿自然也就会死)。但是这个孕妇的家人认为这种做法毫无意义,因为他们担心缺氧已经造成了胎儿的损害。

作者认为这个法律应该被废除,因为它实际上是把孕妇首先看成了一个孕育机器,而不是一个人,禁止撤除脑死亡孕妇的抢救设备实际上侵害了孕妇的权利。

当然,还有一些其他细节,大致就是这么个意思。
