Family moves brain-dead girl Jahi McMath to new facility

Jahi Mcmath, the 13 year-old girl who was declared brain-dead by California doctors has been moved to a new facility that is willing to continue treating her.

Brain dead girl Jahi McMath released from California hospital

Mcmath has been on a ventilator since suffering complications from tonsil surgery on December 9th. At least three doctors and a judge have declared her brain-dead.

But her family has been fighting a legal battle to keep her on the ventilator. And now they're concerned about Jahi's safety.

OutFront: CNN's Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and Bobby Schindler, who is Terry Schiavo's brother. The schiavo family lost a prolonged right-to-die battle with Terri's husband.

    I heard the comments made by Don Lemon and this legal analyst idiot. I was disgusted by these two insensitive jerks. This legal analyst is not a doctor, so how does he know, what McMath is going thru. If her family wants to keep her on life support, that's their business. But referring to people on life support as a corpse is insensitive. I was disgusted by Don Lemon and this analyst comments. They need to go back to school and learn how be a human being, maybe they are the ones that are brain-dead.
