A QUESTION OF AUTHORITY
$39.95
After a terrible fall, a pregnant mother is rushed to a hospital where, although she is declared "brain dead," she is kept alive by a respirator. The doctors want to deliver the baby by cesarean section in order to save its life. The father resists- he is afraid that the child may have suffered brain damage. The hospital administrator doesn't know what to do and calls in a judge to deliberate. Who has the authority to determine whether the baby will live or die? Is it the father? The doctor? The judge? What would the mother have wanted? When should the respirator be turned off? Where does Jewish law (halacha) stand on the issues?
