AUSTIN As 17-month-old Emilio Gonzales lies in a hospital, hooked up to tubes to help him breathe and eat, his mother holds him close and cherishes every movement. Catarina Gonzales knows her baby is terminally ill and that one day she'll have to let go. But it's not yet time, she and her attorneys contend in their legal clash with hospital officials who want to stop Emilio's life-sustaining treatment. An unusual Texas law signed by George W. Bush when he was governor lets the hospital make that life-or-death call. The latest legal dispute over the law Emilio's case goes to court again Tuesday, the day his life support is set to end. "The family has made a unified decision" to keep Emilio living through artificial means, said Joshua Carden, an attorney for the Gonzales family. "The hospital is making quality of life value judgments. That's a huge source of concern." http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/tx/4699274.html My heart just breaks for this mother. I don't care how sick this baby is, no one has the right to kill him! :furious: I cannot even imagine someone telling me that they are going to kill my child and I have no control over it. Again, another travesty that we should not have to face in this nation. I wrote the governers office asking him to intervene. Obviously this child is not going to live forever, so why can't they just let God take him when it is time?
