I'd be a little worried that a tragedy like this would end up becoming a backdoor to one of those personhood bills. Know what I mean? "Oh, what a tragic story. If only the law recognized the fetuses as people the family would have some closure." And so on.

To me the only issue here is about the on-call doctor. Was the hospital negligent because the doctor wasn't there, even though other medical staff were on hand? I'd also hate to think that the hospital would argue that because the woman didn't have any hope of surviving that it didn't matter that the doctor wasn't there.
