Why four senators can hold up repeal of Obamacare is infuriating and evil.
If repeal doesn’t occur, you can expect more stories like Charlie Gard’s. He’s the baby with a rare chromosomal disease in Britain who has been denied treatment by their medical rules and courts. His condition is one that could be greatly ameliorated in the U.S. Congress has granted him citizenship to allow this and President Trump has offered to help the little boy, too.
But the powers that be in Britain and the European Union will not allow it. Now too much time has gone by and the parents have given up on any life saving treatment.
Breitbart London reports:
The parents of baby Charlie Gard have withdrawn their legal bid to bring their son to the United States for treatment, slamming doctors and the courts for “time wasted”.
Speaking in court, the baby’s mother claimed her son was “not brain dead” and could have lived a normal life if he had been released for treatment which was held up by doctors, lawyers and bureaucrats.
Lawyer Grant Armstrong revealed that the parents – Chris Gard and Connie Yates – were withdrawing their appeal after seeing Charlie’s latest scans, saying that treatment should now end. The court was due to make a decision on Tuesday, but proceedings will no longer continue.
Mr Armstrong told Mr Justice Francis that “time had run out” for the 11-month-old baby, and the couple cried at London’s High Court as the announcement was made.
Speaking outside the court, father Chris Gard said: “Put simply, this is about a sweet, gorgeous, innocent little boy, born with a rare disease, who had a real, genuine chance of life and a family who love him so very dearly – and that’s why we fought so hard for him.
“We are truly devastated, to say the least, that following the most recent MRI scan of Charlie’s muscles, as requested in a recent NVT meeting with Dr Hirano, as Charlie’s devoted and loving parents we have decided that it is no longer in Charlie’s best interests to pursue treatment and we will let our son go and be with the angels.
“The American and Italian teams were still willing to treat Charlie,” he said, “but there is one simple reason why treatment cannot now go ahead – and that is time. A whole lot of time has been wasted.”
The parents had been fighting court rulings saying their son’s life support should be withdrawn so he could “die with dignity” for months.
“We are now in July,” noted Mr Gard. “Our poor boy has been left to lie in hospital for months, without any treatment, while lengthy court battles have been fought.
“Tragically, having had Charlie’s medical notes reviewed by independent experts, we now know had Charlie been given the treatment sooner he would have had the potential to be a normal, healthy little boy,” he said.
“Charlie has been left with his illness to deteriorate devastatingly to the point of no return.”
And that’s how it will be for us, if Obamacare isn’t repealed. We would be granting the government life and death decisions on us and our loved ones.
Euthanasia has made big advancements in the past two decades. Assisted suicide is now legal in Washington DC, California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. Calling it death with dignity gives it a cover for the deathmongers. Dr. Kervorkian used to be the face of this issue. He was so creepy that he didn’t do the cause any good. Since his passing, it has advanced. It will continue to under Obamacare.
The “good” liberals who talk about protecting women’s rights, workers rights, etc. do not see any reason to protect your right to life. Indeed, they have gotten rid of it for babies with nationwide abortion.
They believe money shouldn’t get in the way of good health care, but look how it does. The British medical system didn’t want to throw away any pounds on a sick baby, so money does matter to them. It matters a whole lot and outweighs the child’s life.
We’ll see all of this if repeal fails. You’ll just have to hope you escape its clutches.
