Ohio faced a similar issue involving an infant. The prosecutor’s office wanted to take the child off of life support and withhold sustenance to kill the baby so they could charge the father with murder. Apparently, to conclusively prove a diagnosis of “shaken baby syndrome” a forensic pathologist has to do an autopsy. Fortunately, the Ohio Supreme Court overruled the lower courts and refused to permit a guardian ad litem the right to “pull the plug.” For anyone interested, the case is: In re Guardianship of Stein, 105 Ohio St.3d 30, 2004-Ohio-7114.

Thanks you for posting it. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
