Judge orders North Texas hospital to remove pregnant woman from life support
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- A judge has ordered a Texas hospital to remove life support for a pregnant, brain-dead woman.
Judge R. H. Wallace Junior issued the ruling Friday in the case of Marlise Munoz. John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth has been keeping Munoz on life support against her family's wishes.
Munoz was 14 weeks pregnant when her husband found her unconscious November 26th, possibly due to a blood clot.
Erick Munoz says he and his wife are paramedics who were clear that they didn't want life support in this type of situation. His attorney argued that keeping the woman alive would set a dangerous precedent.
But John Peter Smith Hospital had argued that it had to protect the life of the unborn child.
