    The parents aren't asking for anyone to spend any money of their child. They just want to take their son home to die naturally around his loved ones. The father said the hospital won't allow that and insist on taking his tube out on their schedule. They even have guards watching him to make sure the parents don't take him out of the hospital.

    Sounds pretty draconian to me.

    That's not in the article presented to me. But that is also a different issue.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, it is THE issue. The Canadian healtcare system won't allow these grieving parents take their child home to die in peace.

    Are we in canada?

    That said, I'd still need to see more on this for them. I would disagree with not allowing them to go home. But there may be more to it than you know, like she might not survive the move.

    What difference would that make ?? The hospital planned on killing him anyway.

    I've seen more now. The child can go home. The child won't make it. Will stop breathing before getting there. The parents want a surgery, an expenditrue that will not save the life, as the child is already dead, but likley allow the child to make it home. This is not unreasonable for the hospital to say no. The child can leave. The surgery is pointless.

    The surgery is a tracheotomy so the baby can breath well enough to get home to die. I hardly believe that a tracheotomy could be very expensive.
