Sunny Hostin: It certainly doesn’t change the legal analysis

Today attorneys for the family of a brain-dead, pregnant woman in Texas said medical records show her fetus is "distinctly abnormal." Doctors caring for Marlise Munoz say a Texas law requires them to keep her attached to a ventilator, against her family's wishes, because she is pregnant. Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains what the new revelations about the condition of the fetus means for its viability.

Keeping Them Honest: Money, influence and politics

The journalist Michael Kinsley famously wrote about Washington: The real scandal is not what's against the law. The real scandal is what's LEGAL. Drew Griffin investigates what some are calling the extortion game, played for personal gain, they say, by the very politicians who make the rules… and it is all perfectly legal.

Attorneys: Fetus of pregnant, brain-dead mom is "distinctly abnormal"

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.
