What are military spouse's rights concerning healthcare?

Monroe Township, NJ |
Filed under: Medical malpractice

If the military clinic on-base insists on delivering my 31 week old fetus-there are no medical problems-and I don't want to, do I have the right to refuse them what they want to do? Legally am I able to say no?

Yes. A legally competent adult patient can refuse care, even if by doing so the patient is acting against medical advice.

Being in a military base, doesn't change your rights to medical care.
