Texas Pregnant Woman Marlise Munoz Removed from Life Support

A very complex case finally got resolved in Texas. After her husband found her unconscious from a blood clot, Marlise Munoz who was pregnant was taken to a Fort Worth hospital. There she was put on life support systems and kept alive even though she was totally brain dead. 

Both husband and wife had been paramedics and had never wished to be put on a respirator or ventilator and kept alive in a vegetative state. The main issue was the fetus which was developing in her womb. Texas law stated that in no way was abortion allowed after a certain time had elapsed in its development. 

However, the child inside her was developmentally abnormal. The law was getting in the way of relieving the misery of a mother and her unborn child from the intransigence of the medical establishment. This has occurred previously such as in the case of Terry Schiavo who spent a long time on life support before having her feeding tube removed

When the Texas judge ordered the end of life support for Marlise Munoz her husband and parents wept openly. This was because it was both a sad occurrence and somewhat of a relief to know that the woman and her child were free from this vale of tears.
