In the news this morning, two months after a Texas woman was declared brain dead, a judge ruled yesterday that she could be taken off life support.  Complicating matters was the fact that Marlise Munoz was pregnant and officials at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth had said state law required them to maintain life-sustaining treatment for a pregnant patient.  The decision came on the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade supreme court decision.
