Joy in Sorrow

A sad story this week from Virginia.

A brain-dead mother delivered early a healthy baby girl. She then died the next day. Long story short, Susan Torres had succumbed to melanoma, however, not before adding to her legacy by carrying her child long enough for it to survive. Truly it was a bittersweet week for dad and son as they welcomed a new baby girl into the family while they said goodbye to their wife and mom.

Her family decided to keep her alive long enough to give her baby the chance at survival. What I don't get is why was this controversial? Wouldn't any family in this situation have done the same?
