Chat transcript: End of life care: How decisions are made to end life support
Thirteen-year-old Jahi McMath has been declared brain-dead, just days after undergoing surgery at Oakland's Children's Hospital to have her tonsils removed. Angered by what they said were hospital officials' attempts to pressure them into taking the girl off life support, her family presented the hospital Tuesday with a cease-and-desist letter and vowed to take further legal action to keep the girl alive.
