TX LAWMAKER SAYS BABIES IN WOMB DESERVE LEGAL PROTECTION


A Texas lawmaker is developing legislation to provide legal rights for a preborn child in certain circumstances

What prompted the idea is a case in 2013 in which a pregnant, 33-year-old Fort Worth woman was found unconscious by her husband. The baby was 23 weeks old but doctors diagnosed the mother as brain dead.

The husband demanded pulling the plug on mother and baby. A court fight ensued, resulting in a court ruling to halt life support and she died.

Rep. Matt Krause is drawing up a bill that would provide legal representation for the baby in such cases.
