Baby Torres dies

From Reuters...

A baby girl born last month to a brain dead Virginia woman died early on Monday following surgery, according to a statement on a family Web site.

"With great sadness, we are asking for your prayers for the repose of the soul of 5-week-old baby Susan Ann Torres. She passed away last night after surgery for a perforated intestine," the statement said.

The Washington Post, citing hospital officials and the baby's uncle, Justin Torres, said she contracted a disease that can afflict premature infants, which led to an infection and a perforated intestine.

A message on the family's web site says, simply...

With great sadness, we are asking for your prayers for the repose of the soul of 5 week old baby Susan Ann Torres. She passed away last night after surgery for a perforated intestine. Please include in your prayers a request for the peace and comfort of her family, especially Jason Torres, who has had a very difficult past several months.

As far as I know the family still needs financial help, which can still be offered through their web site.

It was a heroic battle, and while it ended with God taking both the mother and the baby, the battle in itself was a victory because life was honored and treated with the sanctity and holiness that God Himself bestowed on it. The Torres family should be saluted for the brave warriors they are in taking on the battle against a society that views the infirm as disposable, a medical profession that treats human life as a toy to be played with and a growing culture of death, that ridicules such efforts as a waste of time and effort. No human being is a waste, because each is infinitely precious. If the creator of this vast universe gave His only Son to die for us, then how could any of us, including an unborn or prematurely born child, be of less than infinite value?
