FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Attorneys for the family of a pregnant brain-dead woman will argue in court today that the woman should be taken off life support, despite the hospital's refusal.

Lawyers for the husband of Marlise Munoz (MOON'-yohz) say she's 22 weeks pregnant with a fetus that's "distinctly abnormal."

John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth says state law forces doctors to continue to treat a pregnant patient.
