The so-called 10-day rule allows hospitals to give a family 10 days to find another hospital before ending life support for their loved one.

OneNewsNow reported in a Nov. 12 story that 9-month-old Tinslee Lewis, using a ventilator because of congestive heart failure, was facing death until pro-life activists stepped in with legal help.

The Lewis family's attorneys won a court hearing to fight the rule and they have now obtained a December 10 deadline for the child’s family to find another facility to take the patient.

Meanwhile, TRL spokesperson Kimberlyn Schwartz says the organization is working to find support in the next session of the state legislature to get the law changed so that no one else faces death because of the 10-day rule.

 “For an ordinary Texan,” she says, “this law is a death sentence. Now what Texan can navigate the legal, the financial, and the medical hurdles associated with transferring a patient, while caring for their loved one in a hospital, in just 10 days?”
