We are hearing more from lawyers of the man fighting to have his pregnant wife, Marlise Munoz, removed from life support at a Fort Worth hospital.

Erick Munoz is suing JPS Hospital, where doctors are refusing to turn off the machines attached to his wife because of their interpretation of a state law that protects her unborn child.

Lawyers for Munoz tell News 8 they are working tirelessly on the case, and they want people to understand that Marlise Munoz is not in a chronic vegetative state, nor is she in a coma they say she is dead.

Her body is 21 weeks' pregnant. At the 24-week mark, doctors plan tests to see if the fetus is viable.
