Baby Tinslee needs a miracle

Baby Tinslee Lewis is at risk of being killed because in Texas law there exists a 10-day rule (Sec. 166.046 3e) that permits healthcare institutions to act against life regardless of the wishes of the patient and/or her family. The law permits withdrawal of treatment that is deemed by ethicists to be futile.

The hospital staff treating Tinslee at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth has described her condition as fatal. In fact, the Texas Hospital Association sent a letter to Chief Justice Sandee Marion stating among other things that "the decision to terminate interventions should be left to medical professionals working closely with the patient and their families." Yet the THA goes on to suggest that the court should defer to the "expertise of the treatment team" when decisions to end life-sustaining "treatments" are at the core of the dilemma.

And sadly, today Judge Sandee Marion ruled against the baby and for the hospital staff!

It is appalling that the bottom line for these people is withdrawal of life support regardless of the fact that an innocent and gravely ill human being will die as a result. It is the equivalent of the hospital staff and its attorneys suggesting that they, not God, know best.

Please pray for Baby Tinslee and her family. May the Lord wrest her from the hands of these medical evildoers.
