Prayer vigil held for pregnant woman on life support

Posted: Updated:
FORT WORTH -

Pro-life supporters held a prayer vigil in support of the Munoz family and their unborn baby, Sunday afternoon. 

The vigil was held outside of John Peter Smith Hospital along with a local pastor.

Marlise Munoz is 21 weeks pregnant and clinically brain dead after collapsing in November from an apparent blood clot in her lung.

Her family is suing to remove life support.

Meanwhile, her unborn baby's heart is beating.

JPS Hospital argues that state law prohibits removing life support from a woman who is pregnant.  A new judge has been assigned to the case after the original judge recused herself last Thursday.
