Brain Death Conflict – Taquisha McKitty,

Taquisha McKitty is being physiologically sustained at Brampton Civic Hospital (Ontario), even though her attending physician (Omar Hayani) issued a death certificate declaring her brain dead over a week ago (on September 20).


McKitty’s parents believe the hospital acted too quickly in declaring their daughter dead, and doctors are ignoring what the family believes are responses to “stimulus” including squeezing their hands and moving her thumb when asked to do so.


The family went to court last week and won an emergency injunction temporarily preventing the hospital from removing the respirator that is keeping her alive. That injunction expires today (Thursday, 9/28) when the matter will be back before Superior Court Justice M.J. Lucille Shaw.
