Grayson lecture focuses on Texas end-of-life case
September 05, 2014,
One of the attorneys involved in an end-of-life case earlier this year centering on a Texas woman and her 14-week-old fetus will discuss the legal and ethical issues involved next week at Southern Illinois University School of Law.
Jessica Hall Janicek, who successfully represented the woman’s family in their fight against the hospital’s refusal to terminate the life of the mother, Marlise Muñoz, will present “Brain Dead and Pregnant: The legal and ethical considerations and impact of the Marlise Muñoz case.” Janicek will deliver the 2014 Dr. Arthur Grayson Distinguished Lecture at 5 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 10, in the Hiram H. Lesar Law Building Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public. A video feed of the lecture will also be available at the SIU School of Medicine in Springfield.
