Judge Grants Marlise Munoz’s Family Relief

 Judge Grants Marlise Munoz’s Family the Relief they Sought

The “plug” will be pulled by 5 p.m. this coming Monday, January 27, 2014:

A judge has ordered a Texas hospital refusing to end life support for a brain-dead, pregnant woman against her and her family’s wishes to remove her from the ventilator by 5 p.m. CT on Monday. 

The hospital acknowledged in court documents for the first time on Friday that Marlise Munoz was brain dead and her fetus was not viable

And from another news story:
 
A Texas court has delivered a robust defense of the power of living wills and ruled against an institution that decided it was going to use vagaries in state law to play God.
