Munoz Fetus Is 'Distinctly Abnormal'

Social-media-metrics

Lawyers for Marlise Munoz’s family say they have medical records showing that her 22-week-old fetus is ‘”distinctly abnormal.”

Specifically, they state that the fetus is experiencing brain swelling, may have a heart problem, and has deformed lower extremities to the extent that the gender cannot be determined.

A hearing is scheduled for Friday.
