      This has turned into a medical experiment, against the family's wishes at that.

      so twisted that the gender cannot be determined and has heart defects and hydrocephalus. And hospital is keeping a dead person on pseudo-life support to prevent the vindictive state government from indicting them for breaking a bad law.

        being used:

        An attorney who helped rewrite the state law being used to keep a pregnant Haltom City woman on life support said lawmakers never discussed it being applied to a brain-dead person.

        Thomas Mayo, an associate law professor at Southern Methodist University who helped draft the latest version of the advance directive section of the Texas Health and Safety Code in 1999, said that he does not recall discussing that aspect of the law.

        “It never would have occurred to us that anything in the statute applied to anyone who was dead,” Mayo said in an interview. “The statute was meant for making treatment decisions for patients with terminal or irreversible conditions.”
