Judge Demands Life Support Pulled from Baby Against Parents’ Wishes

(LifeSiteNews) – Texas Fourth District Court of Appeals Chief Justice Sandee Marion ruled against a Texas family trying to save their baby girl’s life Thursday, by rejecting their bid for another injunction against Cook Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) withdrawing life support from Tinslee Lewis.

The decision gives her family seven days to file an appeal, which Texas Right to Life says they will pursue.

Tinslee Lewis was born prematurely and has spent her entire life so far at the Fort Worth-based children’s hospital, where she has undergone various intensive surgeries for a heart defect, lung disease, and severe chronic pulmonary hypertension. Doctors concluded in October that the 10-month-old was beyond saving, and declared their intentions to take her off life support.

Tinslee’s parents obtained and renewed a restraining order against the move with the help of Texas Right to Life, but Marion has rejected their bid to extend it, NBC-DFW reports
