The family of Marlise Munoz released a statement through their attorneys confirming that John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas removed Marlise from life-support at 11:30 am.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- A brain-dead, pregnant Texas woman's body was removed from life support Sunday, as the hospital keeping her on machines against her family's wishes acceded to a judge's ruling that it was misapplying state law.This whole travesty never should have happened. The hospital should have never decided to go over the heads of the patient and her united family members and kept her dead body hooked up to machines for a 14 week pregnancy. This is fetus worship run amok! I hope her husband, parents, and young son are now able to quietly grieve.
Rest in peace, Marlise.
