Somebody else run with this -- I just want to go off somewhere and chew on some aluminum foil to make me forget I read it.
OOOOOOH, THAT'S A GOOD POINT: Borrowing from a comment over at PZ's, the rationalization for keeping the poor woman on life support is that she's still "in the condition to have babies." But what if she weren't? What if she were infertile? What if she'd already had a hysterectomy? What if she was post-menopausal? Would that suddenly change the situation? Is her life only meaningful if she can, somehow, be impregnated (without her permission or even her awareness, I should point out) to crank out another kid or three?
The more you look at this, the less tasteful it gets.
IF THERE IS A GOD, our Little Suzie Wingnut will address this, and that should give us pure, pants-crapping entertainment for days.
UPDATE. Mercifully, it's over.
