She is dead, her life cannot be sustained.A person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment under this subchapter from a pregnant patient.
Acts 1989, 71st Leg., ch. 678, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1989. Renumbered from Sec. 672.019 and amended by Acts 1999, 76th Leg., ch. 450, Sec. 1.03, eff. Sept. 1, 1999.
Good grief. 82 pages of "She's not dead!" and "Yes she is!"
Poorly worded, no. People with an agenda reading into the law perhaps. Can you imagine our legislation having to add "oh, but the way, this does not pertain to a corpse"? We would never write that, because it is idiotic.
The law clearly was intended for incapacated patients. Not corpses.
