We have no problem turning off life support on a patient that is BRAIN DEAD. I thought about this and how it relates to the abortion issue and developed the concept of BRAIN LIFE......the point at which the brain begins sending signals,etc....Most experts believe it is somewhere in the 14-16 week post-conception range. But wherever it is that is the beginning of BRAIN LIFE! So if it is ok to let a person die AFTER they are BRAIN DEAD... then shouldn't it be ok to let a person die BEFORE there is BRAIN LIFE? I say yes....and that is why I favor legal abortion prior to BRAIN LIFE!
