Imagine your daughter was on life support. Imagine she was pregnant with your grandchild. Imagine the story of how she sustained her injuries was unsubstantiated and raised serious questions.
Would you want her to live? Would you pray for a miracle? Would you fight to save your child and your grandchild?
Would you want the law to protect them?
You might. I would. Ms. Machado and NARAL would not.
They want both the mother and unborn child to be denied the chance for life and the crucial protection of the law.
Neither of these patients had DNR orders. There is no written record to suggest Ms. Munoz wanted her life terminated, much less the life of her unborn child. The surviving family insist they are sure Ms. Munoz would want to die.
Her family is fighting to have her life extinguished. The only protection she has is the law of the state of Texas.
No thanks to Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and Wendy Davis.
