Robyn Benson, Brain Dead Canadian Woman, Delivers Baby via C-Section
Just weeks after Marlise Munoz, a pregnant brain dead woman in Texas, was taken off her ventilator, Robyn Benson in Canada delivered her son Iver via C-section. Benson suffered a brain hemorrhage and was later declared brain dead. Her family opted to keep her on a ventilator as her body continued to nurture the fetus inside her. Baby Iver was born 12 weeks premature at just two pounds. Robyn was taken off her ventilator and allowed to die just after the delivery.
No husband, no family, should ever have to make this choice, but what would you do?
