Update: A petition has been started to make the State of Texas or the John Peter Smith Hospital claim formal responsibility for all expenses related to turning Marlise Munoz into an incubator devoid of dignity. See update at end of diary for details.
The story of Marlise Munoz, the brain dead woman being kept 'alive' against her family's wishes so that her body can incubate a fetus, is horrific. Please join me in writing and calling the hospital to voice your disgust.

For those not following the story, despite the fact that a judge has ordered termination of life support, the hospital is still not giving up on their morbid mission to play God in the most grotesque and cruel manor possible. See Richard Lyon's excellent diary for more details.
7:28 PM PT: A petition has been started by Christian Dem in NC to insure the Munoz family is not held liable for the medical expenses related to this farce of 'humanity'. Please sign and spread the word. The significance goes beyond this particular case to the bigger issue of a hospital or state taking 'ownership' of woman's body to serve its own perverse political agenda.
