Medical Futility Blog: Maine DHHS Cannot Authorize DNR on Baby Aleah Peaslee without Mother Virginia Trask’s Consent

Virginia Trask originally agreed to a DNR order on her brain-damaged daughter, Aleah Peaslee.  But after the baby improved somewhat, Trask changed her mind. But, by then, Trask was no longer in charge of her daughter.  State child welfare officials consented to the DNR order. Trask is now fighting to reverse that order. The Maine Supreme Judicial Court hears arguments on September 23 (In re A.P., Ken-14-192).
