    Judge orders California teen declared brain dead off life support, but allows time for appeal


    [​IMG]

    OAKLAND, Calif. — A judge on Tuesday ordered that a 13-year-old Northern California girl declared brain dead after suffering complications following a tonsillectomy be taken off life support.
    But Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo gave Jahi McMath's family until 5 p.m. Dec. 30 to file an appeal. She will stay on life support until then.

    Grillo issued the order after a Stanford doctor testified that Jahi is brain dead. Dr. Paul Graham Fisher's evaluation was the second to reach that conclusion.
    Children's Hospital of Oakland, where Jahi is hospitalized, has asked that the girl be taken off life support after doctors there also concluded she was brain dead.
    Her family has said it believes she is still alive and that the hospital should not remove her from the ventilator without its permission.
    Hospital lawyers disagree.

    "Because Ms. McMath is dead, practically and legally, there is no course of medical treatment to continue or discontinue; there is nothing to which the family's consent is applicable," the hospital said in a court filing on Tuesday.

    Fisher first provided his opinion to Grillo behind closed doors Tuesday morning. Fisher briefly provided his conclusions in open court that Jahi has no brain activity. Fisher left court without taking questions.
    Dr. Robin Shanahan, a Children's Hospital doctor, was next called to testify in the judge's chambers.
    Grillo has previously ordered Jahi to remain on life support until Dec. 30, or until further order from the court.
    Jahi was declared brain dead after experiencing complications following a tonsillectomy at Children's Hospital
    .

    The judge on Monday had called for Jahi to be independently examined by Fisher, the chief of child neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
    On Dec. 12, doctors concluded the girl was brain dead and since then have wanted to remove her from life support. Jahi's family wants to keep her hooked up to a respirator and eventually have her moved to another facility.

    "They failed her," said Sandra Chatman, Jahi's grandmother and a registered nurse, who sat in Grillo's courtroom for more than three hours Tuesday during the closed door testimony. "Jahi could have been saved."

    When Terry Schiavo was in exactly 100.00% the same situation, the entire Republican party rallied to her defense. They mounted a huge media campaign, round the clock protests at the hospitals, they passed emergency bills in Congress solely for her individual benefit to override rulings from the court. Countless death threats against the husband. On and on and on for years.

    Fast forward to this black girl and the exact same Republicans couldn't give the slightest, slightest care in the world. Not so much as a syllable of protests from a single one of them.

    Quite the contrast.

    Now you have your answer.
