    Baby Joseph Flown to U.S. Hospital

    This is good news. The scum in Canada wanted to kill him.



    Baby Joseph Flown to U.S. Hospital - Health Care - Fox Nation
    The baby who was hours from being pulled off life support at his Canadian hospital has been rescued by the national director of Priests for Life and taken to the U.S. for treatment.

    Thirteen-month-old Joseph Maraachli, who is currently kept alive by a respirator and was recently denied a transfer to a Michigan hospital to undergo a tracheotomy, arrived in the U.S. early Monday morning with Fr. Frank Pavone and other Priests for Life staff.

    "Priests for Life staff toiled through the night for many nights, working in concert with dozens of people to make this possible," Father Pavone said in a statement. "Now that we have won the battle against the medical bureaucracy in Canada, the real work of saving Baby Joseph can begin."

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It will be interesting to see the fallout on Obamacare if this little baby lives.

    I find myself truly astonished that the supporters of single payer(Obamacare) ins. actually think this kind of thing is not the inevitable result of government control. Rationing exists in every "industrialized nation" but ours. Fancy that.

    Joseph's parents had him discharged from the Canadian hospital where doctors said he had been treated for a progressive and fatal neurodegenerative disease. The Maraachlis wanted the baby to receive a tracheostomy, a hole cut into his throat in order to install a breathing machine. The Canadian hospital said the invasive procedure was not appropriate in Joseph's case because his disease is fatal.

    Re: Baby Joseph Flown to U.S. Hospital

    Now I'm confused about something...

    is he having something done that is likely to actually save his life for a considerable amount of time?

    Or is he having a painful surgical procedure simply so he can die at home in a few weeks instead of dieing in the hospital now?

    The answer to that greatly affects my views on this, and it seems to be having misinformation put out

    It's the second one. The baby is already in a vegetative state.

    From your own article:
    "The boy suffers from a rare, progressive neurological disease which, Canadian doctors say, has left him in a vegetative state beyond recovery. He has been at the Children’s Hospital in London, Ontario, since the fall."

    Yeah, the "scum in Canada wanted to kill him" by, umm, not keeping him attached to a machine forever. They pretty much sound like Darfur warlords to me.

    I can't. This is important.

    It exists here too, it's just done by a free market instead of a government. For example, the people who are shrieking the loudest about this kid being taken off life support are typically the same people who don't give a **** if poor people in the United States can't afford medical care.

    I'd certainly rather have medical care rationed by the effectiveness of the procedure rather than the financial wealth of the patient. Although not perfect, that would be a huge improvement in our health care system.
