Black Teen Can Stay on Life Support After Tonsillectomy

A court ruled that the family of Jahi McMath, a 13-year old teen from Maryland, could temporarily keep her on life support despite her doctors diagnosing her as brain dead. Earlier this month, McMath went in for a routine tonsillectomy and had serious complications from her surgery, the Associated Press reported.
