Yeah, this is fairly close to me (geographically) and has made quite a storm on the local papers.

She must have been mostly dead, not all dead. There is a difference. When you're mostly dead, your body is still operating on some level.

All dead = Completely inert

I don't know much about pregnancies, but would two days really have made a difference? I suppose pumping the steroids in to develop the baby's lungs was necessary, though.

The mother could not have been completely dead. She must have been just brain-dead. Her body must still have been warm, the blood still flowing in her veins ...

It said in the article that she was on assistance, of course she couldn't be dead, the baby would die due to a lack of oxygen at the least. They kept her body alive, and thats all.

I don't see how this is strange.

In 1999, a boy was born at Cabuenes hospital in Gijon, northern Spain, on New Year's Eve to a mother who had been clinically dead since mid-November.


is clinically dead the equivilent to brain dead or actually dead?

i still think it's amazing how a baby can be born without the mother being able to interact.

No no it's "mostly dead"

There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do...Go through his clothes and look for loose change.
