State District Judge R.H. Wallace will hear arguments regarding Marlise Munoz, now on life support. Her husband, Erick Munoz of Haltom City, said his wife, a fellow paramedic, told him she wanted to be taken off of machines if she ever came to this point.,0,501153.story#ixzz2rLPX0JYl


At this point, the fetus doesn't sound like it's viable even if it makes it to the viable time frame.

This is horrifying torture on that woman's family. Now they find out the fetus is very deformed. So the father has to sit around and wait and wait-for what? It is not like this is going to end well. This is not right. They need to let nature take its course.
