(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.
“Our doctors and nurses have done everything humanly possible to save Tinslee’s life,” CCMC claimed in a statement. “Sadly, she shows no signs of improvement and there are no treatment options available to help her get better.”

“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
