Charlie Gard: Eurocrats Sentence Baby to Death

The point of all the tedious squabbling over healthcare that has been clogging up the news is to determine how quickly and under what conditions the federal government will consolidate control over the healthcare industry. Charlie Gard demonstrates the horror that awaits us when that bipartisan goal has been achieved.

Charlie is a 10-month-old with the misfortune of suffering from mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, and the possibly still greater misfortune of having been born in a country with socialized medicine. Matt Walsh reports:

The hospital that had been treating the boy, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, made the determination that nothing more can be done for him and he must be taken off of life support. He should “die with dignity,” they said. The parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, disagreed.

This is the very crucial thing to understand: they are not insisting that GOSH be forced to keep Charlie on life support. Rather, they want to take him out of the hospital and to America to undergo a form of experimental therapy that a doctor here had already agreed to administer. Chris and Connie raised over $1.6 million to fund this last ditch effort to save their child’s life. All they needed the British hospital to do was release their child into their care, which doesn’t seem like a terribly burdensome request.

Why should they have to request it? They are the parents. They can demand it.

But I’m forgetting; Britain is run by progressive statists. According to their ideology, “it takes a village” to raise a child. As stated more explicitly by former MSNBC propagandist Melissa Harris-Perry, children belong not to their families, but to their “communities” (i.e., the government).

The hospital refused to give Charlie back to his parents. The matter ended up in the courts, and, finally, in the last several hours, the European Court of “Human Rights” ruled that the parents should be barred from taking their son to the United States for treatment.

You won’t find a better example of Orwellianism than the tyranny inflicted in the name of “human rights.”

The court ruled that it is “in his best interest” for Charlie to die. Therefore, dying is his only right. His parents have no right to intervene.

In Europe, a mother may kill her baby but she is not allowed to keep him alive.

This is wrong, and it is coming our way. Walsh gives three reasons why:

1. This is what happens with socialized medicine.
2. This is what happens when parental rights are subordinate to the State.
3. This is what happens when human life is not considered sacred.

Britain is only a couple exits ahead of us on the highway to hell. That’s why every inch is worth fighting over.

Charlie’s parents are not permitted to try to save him.

    ..and Susan Rice blames what little scrutiny she is getting on… you guessed it..

  2. OldSailor says:

    Bear in mind, the left here wants “Single Payer” (i.e. Socialized) medicine and they keep pointing to the Canadian and British medical systems as their model.

  3. Mike says:

    Ah, the virtues of “free” healthcare!

  4. Mr. Freemarket says:

    We keep you alive to serve this ship. Row well and live.

    And….if you can’t row, what good are you?

    When the government controls healthcare, they control you. The “problem” the Dems wanted to solve was a lack of availablity of healthcare INSURANCE to 12 million Americans who wanted it but couldn’t afford it. Instead of addressing this, they passed a bill that took over the healthcare system along with the insurance industry, adding in free birth control and other goodies. Now, the premiums are more affordable for some (very few) of the poor in the Obamacare system, but they cannot afford the skyrocketing deductables. So, they don’t go to the doctor, and they die. Obamacare is murdering people, but the Dems won’t be satisfied until Single Payer finishes the job. But they will have accomplished their purpose of making us all vassals to the state.

    I would absolutely encourage them to “kidnap” their own child and come here. Consequences be damned here but praised in Heaven.

  7. Angel says:

    George Bernard Shaw once stated that he believed we should all be required to go before a government board every five years and justify our value to the state, or be executed.

    They need to renounce their citizenship, and apply to the US for refugee status.

  9. Jester says:

    At least poor Charlie can start voting left-wing in elections right away, which I’m sure was the purpose of his demise from the start. Why wait 18 years? Doesn’t get much sadder than this, folks.

  10. Jester says:

    As long as they promise to vote left-wing, they’ll be welcomed with open arms.

  11. Jester says:

    If you can’t row, you can still vote left-wing.

    23 million people WILL DIE because of cuts to healthcare…. But not where you think.
    Word has it that 23 million people will DIE because of cuts to healthcare. But this isn’t taking place in the states, no this is occurring in a bastion of national socialized healthcare with the NHS. From the BBC

    A&E cuts will hit 23m people, British Medical Association says
    Nearly 23 million people in England – more than 40% of the population – could be affected by proposed cuts to A&E departments, doctors are warning.
    Under the so-called “sustainability and transformation programme” (STP), England has been divided into 44 areas and each asked to come up with its own proposals.

    After analysing local plans, the BMA found:
    ▪ 18 of them, covering a population of 22.9 million, involved the closing or downgrading of an A&E department
    ▪ 14 of them, responsible for 17.6 million patients, propose closing or merging a hospital
    ▪13 of them, covering a population of 14.7 million, have put forward closing hospital beds
    ‘Deep-seated problems’

    Now, according the low standard of discourse set by the socialist left in the states, 40% of the population in the UK WILL DIE!

    According to the left, the only solution is national socialized healthcare [Or as Elizabeth Warren terms it: a ‘national single-payer plan.’] So shouldn’t we take a very long and hard look at that concept borne of socialism and examine it’s failure around the world in disparate places such as Venezuela and the UK?

    Take a look at some of the horrific images of hospitals in Venezuela – it makes that look pristine by comparison.

    $1.6M = hit on the baby’s killer.

    Meanwhile Killer Keehan gets $1 million a year to hobnob w/sodomite perverts Cardinal McCarrick and President Obama–what’s to be done about these excessive healthcare salaries—got to pay da perverts to kill us! Does any pervert in the Vatican know what to do about that? Maybe they should ask Jesus Christ — before they face their judgment day. Subito! Subito!

  17. Otis Longear says:

    In a sane world, this would be considered kidnap and murder.

  18. Otis Longear says:

    the whole reason costs have skyrocketed (800%) is because of govt.

    The obvious step would be for the family to declare itself Muslim.

  20. Eddie_Valiant says:

    Maybe not such a good idea. Read my post above.

  21. Eddie_Valiant says:

    This is wrong, and it is coming our way.

    Not coming our way, it’s already here. Maybe this was a test run –

    to complete the circle, Churchill is quote above and GBS here, now for a Churchill quote about GBS:

    “I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend … if you have one.”
    — George Bernard Shaw, playwright (to Winston Churchill)

    “Cannot possibly attend first night; will attend second, if there is one.”
    — Churchill’s response”

    That would likely work. If not, there’s a little thing called “revolution,” parents! We had one a bit over 200 years ago (and against you all, by the way! How ’bout that!) — took a few years, and not an insignificant number of lives, but we now live free, out from under the tyrannical boot of a centralized totalitarian government (for a while longer, at least). You might want to consider that, Brits! You might be aware of something called “tarring & feathering” — give that a try with your idiot legislators, Brits!

  25. BostonLiberty says:

    The gays even hate their fellow gays. Look at the gay Jewish group who were kicked out of a GAY PRIDE parade by their fellow fags and dykes. Remember kids, Lizzie Lesbian says: “Gay is good, unless you are a dirty Jew.”

  26. BostonLiberty says:

    I feel pity for the poor soul who comes to my home looking for trouble.
