As if the controversy over what constitutes legal death in this country, given all of the competing moral and ethical dilemmas involved, isn’t complicated enough, think about it when the deceased person is pregnant.  The husband of such a person just “won” a court battle against a Texas hospital that believed the law required it to keep the deceased woman on life support in light of the unknown status of the unborn fetus despite his demands to remove her.
