this situation is disgusting. sounds more and more like the husband will prevail but how disturbing that the hospital is holding strong to their position considering the information available to them.

This hospital must be run by religious zealots who are rabid pro-lifers - either that or, has been suggested, they stand to profit from keeping a carcass alive. A woman is more than an incubator after all. It makes it even more egregious to keep the dead going for a severely deformed fetus. This is utterly disgusting and outrageous, IMO.
