While the family of Marlise Muñoz prepares for her funeral, the debate about her case goes on.

She’s the brain-dead, pregnant woman pulled off life support Sunday.

Muñoz was kept alive for two months, while her family battled JPS Hospital. The hospital cited that it had to keep her alive because of Texas law.

Tom Mayo is a medical ethicist and professor at the SMU Dedman School of Law. He joined Jason Wheeler on News 8 at 4pm to talk about how this case could affect other Texas families.
