U.S. Supreme Court Prevents Texas Hospital From Removing Tinslee Lewis’ Life Support

(Christian Post) – The U.S. Supreme Court has declined an appeal from a Texas hospital seeking to overturn a lower court decision that prevented it from removing a baby girl’s life support.

The case of Cook Children’s Medical Center v. Tinslee Lewis, et al. was one of several cases that the Supreme Court declined to hear Monday. The court’s refusal to hear the case leaves the lower court ruling temporarily preventing the Fort Worth, Texas-based Cook Children’s Medical Center from withdrawing life support from 23-month old Tinslee Lewis.

Lewis’ mother has spent more than a year fighting to keep her daughter alive. In November 2019, Cook Children’s Medical Center attempted to invoke the 10-Day Rule against Lewis, who was born prematurely and with a heart defect. CONTINUE
