Marlise Munoz was 14-weeks pregnant when she collapsed from an apparent blood clot. Her family says she is brain-dead, which means legally dead. Previously she and her husband had discussed being in precisely this kind of situation; neither wanted to be kept on life-support machines. However, under Texas law, because she is pregnant, the hospital is refusing to take her off life-support until a baby can be delivered. Now, her family is releasing new information about the fetus's condition.
Anderson discussed this with legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark Geragos, along with OB-GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson.
