Nevada parents are fighting for their grandchild's life.
They are trying to stop a judge from holding hearings that could result in the termination of their mentally disabled daughter's pregnancy, reports the Associated Press.
Here is why.
The parents say they have the right to make their daughter's health care decisions as her legal guardians, that they are aware of the risks, and they want to see the baby carried to term. Furthermore, they say there are six couples who have expressed interest in adopting the baby.
Two medical experts testified the pregnancy is risky because the woman, who is 32 years old but has the mental capacity of a six year old, has epilepsy and is on medication.
What do you think? Should the parents have the final say as to whether the pregnancy should continue?
