I really do not understand where your anger and defense of this sci-fi experiment comes from? It is illogical. Put yourself in the mother's place for a second, if possible. Would this really be your wish for you and your baby? To bring it into this cold world, deformed, with no mother, the only one who would love it unconditionally? God gave us the intelligence to make ventilators to save lives, not this.
There was so much pseudo-compassion in this thread it was disgusting. Look at the tactics most of these responses engage in while crusading against their perception of "pro-choice dogma." They engage in a very selective compassion which only serves their own interests, usually selfish.
Like rabid dogs straining against their chains, chomping at the bit.
Just go back and read Bigfurrytexan's antics.
I never had a problem waiting until the term which viability is officially recognized. I happen to know several people with MD, family members suffering from dementia and turrets, and debilitating paralysis who are happy to go on living. I also happen to know several people who are perfectly healthy and absolutely miserable to the point of suicidal thoughts.
It was pathetic how excited these individuals were to pull the plug before official standards to "save money," or "prevent a miserable existence." Continuing on, they never even sited legal or medical precedent supporting their desires to end it all before the fat lady sings.
If it caused them emotional distress so be it, the extraordinary lack of intellectual integrity was appalling.
So many people calling the law wrong without knowing the law or even how to find it, claiming associations of its origins without sources . . .
A pregnant woman who lapsed into a vegetative state late last year was finally removed from life-support on Sunday after the Texas hospital caring for her announced it would comply with a judge's order to disconnect her from the machines keeping her alive.

FYI a choke cuts off the airflow through the trachea.
A strangulation cuts off the blood flow through the arteries.
Full Definition of CHOKE
1: to check or block normal breathing of by compressing or obstructing the trachea or by poisoning or adulterating available air
1: the action or process of strangling or strangulating
2: the state of being strangled or strangulated; especially : excessive or pathological constriction or compression of a bodily tube (as a blood vessel or a loop of intestine) that interrupts its ability to act as a passage
They don't give a damn about the family's dignity or suffering which is made obvious by their responses. They are on a crusade against what they view as "pro-life dogma."
It wouldn't matter if the fetus were perfectly healthy, they would have acted the same. These types of threads pop up often on ATS Momof3, I suggest you write down some of the names you see in this thread and see how they act in those.

Your obviously talking nothing but hot air dude.
You know there is an ancient chinese saying that if you save a persons life your responsible for that person from then on.
So...Are you willing to put your money were your mouth is and take care of the baby no matter how it comes out. Chances are your not, and you just have an opinion about how things should be.
def·i·ni·tion noun ˌde-fə-ˈni-shən : an explanation of the meaning of a word, phrase, etc. : a statement that defines a word, phrase, etc. : a statement that describes what something is : a clear or perfect example of a person or thing
These are the medical definitions, you can go argue with the dictionary. -FBB
But I suppose it just depends on what you call a thing. Stranglehold or choke both would mean the same thing in a way.
So this is basically a pissing contest between pro-life and pro-choice and this family has to suffer because of it?
