nytimes.com – The fight over the fate of a 2-year-old Brooklyn girl’s organs ended on Tuesday, with the girl’s father prevailing in his wishes to keep her body intact. Thaiya Spruill-Smith, the victim of an assault to which her stepfather has confessed, was declared brain-dead on Friday but had been kept on life support as her parents argued over whether her organs should be donated.
