FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 24, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Operation Rescue issues the following statement in response to Judge R.H. Wallace, Jr.'s ruling this afternoon ordering John Peter Smith Hospital to terminate life support to Marlise Munoz and thereby kill her pre-born baby. This statement is attributable to Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue:
We are appalled by Judge Wallace's order to terminate life support for Marlise Munoz and her baby. The order is the equivalent of signing a death sentence for Baby Munoz. We utterly reject the false notion that Marlise's body is a rotting corpse, which is impossible since a decaying body cannot support the life of a baby for weeks, as Marlise has.
Killing people because they are disabled is wrong, and dangerously devalues all life. We condemn in the strongest terms this order to fatally discriminate against this disabled mother and her baby, especially in light of the fact that there are people standing by to adopt the baby knowing that the child will have special needs.
