The whole thing is tragic. But above all else, her wishes should have been respected.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I've also done the homework here and I have told you what the law says. No distortion, no games. I assume you don't like the law, but as someone who lives here, I don't much care.

Baby Born To Brain-Dead Mother 3 Months After Woman's Declared DeathBrain dead mom gives birth to twins while on life supportResearchers from Heidelberg University in Germany scoured the medical literature for cases of pregnant women who were kept on life support after being declared brain-dead. They were able to find details on 19 such cases that were reported from 1982 to 2010.
Twelve of those fetuses were delivered by caesarean section and survived for some period of time after birth
There were also two cases involving fetuses that were 15 weeks old when their mothers died. One of the fetuses died in utero 49 days after its mother suffered catastrophic bleeding in the brain in Italy in 1992. The other remained in utero for 107 days – more than 15 weeks – after its mother suffered a traumatic brain injury in the U.S. in 1989. That baby boy was delivered by C-section at 32 weeks; he weighed 3.4 pounds, had Apgar scores of 6 and 9 (scores lower than 7 indicate a newborn needs medical attention, according to the National Institutes of Health), and was developing normally 11 months after his birth.

If nothing else it is abortion on demand and while Texas is doing it's utmost to strangle that law the doctor who pulls the plug on the dead mother has privileges at the hospital and the woman has a DNR.
I'd say the not liking a law is on the other foot, I'd say the law permits an abortion, so why not termination of heroic means to keep the mother alive and possibly her brain damaged fetus- who isn't viable.
