After months of going to extraordinary lengths to fight for their child’s life, a California family lost their young son after his life support was pulled.
Israel Stinson died Thursday when Children’s Hospital Los Angeles removed him from life support after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge dissolved the latest restraining order keeping him alive. The family was in the process of filing a court appeal, but the hospital took the two-year-old off life support anyway.
The recent handing of Israel’s care and the shocking way in which his life ended was bizarre and awful, an attorney for his family told LifeSiteNews.
Alexandra Snyder, executive director for the Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF), said it became increasingly clear during the few short weeks Israel was at the hospital where he came for treatment that the intent all along was to disconnect him from his life support. Not only did the hospital pull Israel’s life support against the family’s wishes while they were in the midst of filing an appeal, his mother and father were told to leave their son’s side in the hospital upon his death.
