Killing me Softly: Texas, abortions and the need for a comfortable life…



A Texas judge ruled Friday that a Fort Worth hospital may not keep a brain-dead pregnant woman on life support against her family’s wishes, and ordered doctors to take her off the machines by 5 p.m. on Monday.

The ruling gives the family of the woman, Marlise Muñoz, their first legal victory in a two-month battle over the fate of her body that has raised an emotionally charged national debate over end-of-life care, abortion and a Texas law that prohibits medical officials from withdrawing life support from a pregnant patient.

Lawyers for Ms. Muñoz’s husband, Erick Muñoz, said they were provided with medical records that showed the fetus was “distinctly abnormal” and suffered from hydrocephalus — an accumulation of fluid in the cavities of the brain — as well as a possible heart problem.

The hospital acknowledged in court documents that the fetus was not viable.
Ms. King, the family’s lawyer, apologized in the courtroom for putting it so crudely, but told the judge that pregnant women “die every day,” adding: “When they die, their fetus dies with them. That is the way it’s always been, and the way it should be.” (!!!!!) (1)

So… there aren’t any people with hydrocephalus alive now?
Can’h hydrocephalus be treated?
Check out John Lorber cases.

But is this really the point here? I believe not.

The point is that we define LIFE based on legal terms and not based on what… life actually is!

That ALIVE fetus was sitting quiet in its dark world and was suddently deprived of oxygen, without ever having the chance to be heard. It died peacfully. Alone. As we all do. Like an ant, we squashed it into oblivion so as not to disturb our “neat” lives.

Oidipus was killed for much milder crimes…
We have lost our real contact with the Universe.
We have forgotten which is the price for Hybris.
We have become arrogant.

We have officially proclaimed ourselved Gods.
But not Gods that promote life and love.
Gods that promote hate and death. It is much easier to give death than to sustain life.

Not Gods who like to know.
Gods who prefer not to know, not to see. It is much easier to kill what you do not see.
Lazy “gods”…

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
