    I believe the operative words in the article presented are: Court documents filed on Friday by a family's lawyers and prosecutors representing a Ft. Worth hospital stated the fetus inside a brain-dead pregnant woman was "not viable." The court filing was the first time the hospital publicly acknowledged the deteriorating condition of the fetus and came just hours before the Friday afternoon hearing.

    I hope this puts to rest comments about the hospital having a hidden agenda and acting illegally. By all accounts I've seen, they seem to have been acting professionally and in compliance with the law, as they saw it.
    My only disgust is with the length of time this took to get to the courts. Courts have schedules, but the hospital should have insisted this be fast tracked. I have a hard time believing it two 2 months to get here.

    Actually...on one of these threads, folks posted links. I read them and the case that folks posted the most about (cannot remember the foreign country)the case was about a woman that had major brain surgery....monitored situation, never lost oxygen or such. It was strictly a "brain event". If there was an optimal situation for this to happen...I guess that was it. The situation with Marise Munoz was very different. There was a prolonged lack of oxygen that was clearly going to have a devastating effect on the fetus.

    As I noted in my comments, in reference to the article, the hospital only came to the decision that the fetus was no longer viable either today or very recently. As such, the hospital, in effect, supported the petition of the husband in court. That is why the judge ruled in his favour.

    In my view, there's no need to be disgusted with the hospital for following the law and trying to save the fetus - that's honorable. It's also honorable that when they determined the fetus could not survive, they joined the petition to remove life support. I would hope that every hospital could be so ethical and honorable when dealing with difficult situations such as this.

    They husband did not allow tests on the fetus until recently, which is why it took so long. At the beginning the husband kept saying we know nothing about the condition of the fetus.

    Not really. They suffered when she was died. This was an attempt to keep a corpse warm long enough to allow the human life inside to be born. It is not worse than the initial death was.

    Well. It's over, John. The hospital didn't have a statutory argument. They made a completely reckless claim that they were held legally responsible to keep the fetus alive until viability age between 26 and 28 week. NONSENSE!

    The fetus was 14 weeks old when the woman died. There is no legal protection for a 14 week old fetus. The husband had every right to stand proxy in determining his wife's fate.

    I do not know enough about these things, but how is it possible to keep anything alive inside of something brain dead and decaying? Science is wonderful, but nature does what nature does! This make me want to throw up, for the fetus's sake!

    Greetings, CJ.
