New Georgia Case - Parents Will Not Consent to DNR for Dinah Whited

Dinah Whited is just 2 months old.  She is on life support.  But both her parents are in jail, accused of injuring the child.  Consequently, they are unwilling to consent to a DNR order.



This is an all-too-common end-of-life conflict scenario. It is also a classic case of where the surrogate's COI typically disqualifies the surrogate from having medical decision making authority.
