SPOTLIGHT: Brain-dead woman allowed to die after giving birth

Doctors allowed a brain dead woman who gave birth yesterday to die by switching off the systems which had been keeping her alive. The case of Susan Torres has been closely watched for months as doctors attempted to save the life of her child. Torres gave birth yesterday to a 1 lb., 13 oz. baby girl. Doctors say the chances are very good that the cancer that killed Torres has not spread to the infant. Story
