Texas Futile Care Case ContinuesTopics: Futile Care Laws
A federal judge rejected a request by the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) for a temporary restraining order that would allow 16-month-old Emilio Gonzales of Texas to continue to receive life-saving treatment:
Doctors believe Gonzales has Leigh's disease, which causes degeneration of the central nervous system and could eventually kill him. Experts say someone with the disease can live to be 7 years old.Joshua Carden, an ADF-allied attorney, said it's all about the money while Texas Right to Life continues to work quietly to find a medical care facility to treat Emilio.
"We have some new leads," Graham said, "but we only have until Tuesday before they start withdrawing treatment - so we're praying some of these leads come through."
