Texas hospital refusing husband's wish to pull life support for his pregnant wife whom he says has been declared brain dead
(AP) - A North Texas hospital is refusing a husband's wish to pull life support for his pregnant wife whom he says has been declared brain dead.
Erick Munoz said he found his wife, Marlise, unconscious in November. At the time, she was 14 weeks pregnant.
Both Erick and Marlise are paramedics. He says they've have discussed that they would not want to be kept on life support.
But John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth says it's bound by state law not to pull life support from a pregnant patient. However, three experts on the law say a brain-dead patient is not covered by it.
While not ruling out legal action, Munoz said Friday that he's more concerned about letting others know about his family's ordeal.
