DALLAS (AP) - A judge on Thursday will consider whether a Texas hospital can take a 10-month-old girl off life support despite her family's opposition. At the hearing in Fort Worth, a judge will consider the request by Tinslee Lewis' family for a temporary injunction to stop Cook Children's Medical Center from removing life-sustaining treatment for the girl. Doctors at the Fort Worth hospital had planned to remove Tinslee from life support Nov. 10 after invoking Texas so-called’ “10-day rule,” which can be employed when a family disagrees with doctors who say life-sustaining treatment should be stopped.
