If a fetus isn't a person, is a coma patient?

Hello HP:

We're a nation that celebrates the rule of law.. Consequently, certain words have LEGAL meanings that are distinct from their common usage. For example murder IS killing, but killing isn't necessarily murder.. You can't OBLITERATE those distinctions..

Both are "viable persons" (to use a FromWithin term). A person with a "potential" life if they are able to reach it. Both are "alive" though neither has a "life" at that stage. IMO, of course.

If a productive, enjoyable life is seen for either, or in the case of the "viable fetus", it didn't endanger another "actual life", I would be inclined to protect it. Then again, if either show evidence that that person will never HAVE a decent life, those involved should have the RIGHT to CHOOSE to end a "life(?)" of misery. Who wants to live a life of misery? Many that do end their OWN!
