Hippocratic OathThe story of a Texas baby has inspired others to fight for life.

Tinslee Lewis, who is celebrating her 18-month birthday this week, remains at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, a facility that wants to pull the plug on her.

Kimberlyn Schwartz of Texas Right to Life tells OneNewsNow it's because of the state's 10-day law, which allows a hospital to notify a family it has 10 days to move the patient to another facility or the plug will be pulled.

A recent ruling from an appeals court, however, concluded that state law is unconstitutional, Schwartz advises, which means the young girl will win if the legal fight moves to a trial as scheduled, she predicts. 

“And so what this means is that Tinslee is definitely protected,” the pro-life activist advises. “She won a temporary injunction.”

Schwartz adds that media outlets such as OneNewsNow have told the story of the young girl and thus helped save lives.
