Family of Brain-Dead Pregnant Woman Now Fighting to Change State Law

(ABC News) – A family that had to go to court to get a brain-dead woman taken off life support is now fighting to change Texas law so other families won’t have to go through the same ordeal. The family of Marlise Munoz is working with Texas lawmakers to craft a new bill that could make it easier for families to have end-of-life decisions in regards to a pregnant woman, according to a new documentary in production currently titled, “The Pregnancy Exclusion.”
