Classical Care

Infans might have given the game away. But fetus, although it does mean something like "offspring" and has no specific connotation of still being in the womb, is a convenient Latin way of avoiding the obvious English word. Something similar applies to "nutrition and hydration", one Latin and the other Greek.

One refers to food, the other to water. And the withdrawal of food and water from a comatose person is not the withdrawal of medical treatment, but the intentional killing of that person. Parliament needs to legislate in order to make that clear. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning.
