FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Hospital executives in North Texas are conferring with the district attorney's office to determine their next step following a judge's ruling that they must disconnect life support for a pregnant, brain-dead woman.
John Peter Smith Hospital spokeswoman J.R. Labbe said Saturday that "discussions are ongoing" as administrators weigh the order a day earlier by Judge R. H. Wallace Jr. The hospital is owned by Tarrant County and is being represented in the contentious case by the DA's office.
Wallace agreed with a request by Erick Munoz to have life support removed for his wife, Marlise Munoz. She was 14 weeks pregnant when her husband found her unconscious Nov. 26, possibly due to a blood clot.
The hospital says it has a legal duty to protect the fetus and is considering an appeal.
