Fetus of Pregnant, Brain-Dead Texas Woman ‘Distinctly Abnormal’
Attorneys for the family of a brain-dead pregnant woman who is on life support in a Texas hospital said Wednesday they have medical records showing the fetus is “distinctly abnormal.”
They issued the statement, they said, to clear up any “misconceptions about the condition of the fetus.”
Erick Munoz, the husband of 33-year-old former paramedic Marlise Munoz, has filed a lawsuit against John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth seeking to remove her from life support.
He said her wishes were not to be kept alive in such a state.
