"It's against public policy to starve a woman"

The Delaware Legislature is defending a woman who cannot defend herself. She overdosed on heroin, and her father is caring for her against her mother's wishes. Last year, she gave birth to a baby girl, Ember Grace.
Lauren's father confirmed, "We struggle at times as we seek to share with the public the details of what is happening with Lauren because of the disagreement we have with Lauren's mother. We cannot understand her reasoning in refusing a path of hope, healing and restoration for Lauren and insisting on causing her death by withholding food and water from her. The issue in Lauren's case is the eternal truth that all people, no matter what their medical condition, bear the image of God and deserve basic care and an opportunity to be restored to health."
