Marlise Law will not Bar Doctors from ending Life Support for Pregnant Patients

A Texas mother is making efforts to prevent other families from going through the same pain she had to more than a year ago. Lynne Machado’s daughter Marlise Munoz was not removed from life support for more than two months after she was declared brain dead. Munoz was 14 week pregnant when she was hooked up to life support at a Fort Worth hospital after being declared brain dead.

“It was a very difficult journey to see our daughter on artificial support for 62 days when we knew she was dead. The hospital had confirmed that”, said Lynne Machado.
