Last week a London, Ont., judge sided with doctors and a medical board and allowed the city's Children's Hospital to take steps this week that would enable doctors to remove a breathing tube from 13-month-old Joseph Maraachli.
Joseph's parents had fought the removal of life-support and when the hospital sought the legal authority to do so, pleaded for doctors to perform a tracheotomy that might allow them to try to take their son home. A hustle by pro-life and anti-euthanasia groups resulted in a change in legal counsel, which has led to at least a temporary stay of removal of the child%u2019s ventilator.
Alex Schadenberg, head of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, informed LifeSiteNews Sunday evening that negotiations are underway to transfer Joseph to a hospital in Michigan. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO ENSURE THE RIGHTS OF BABY JOSEPH AND HIS FAMILY ARE UPHELD
"And first do no harm". All life is precious . When a child can not speak for himself the parents rights come first. It is not up to anyone but them to decide what is best and humane for their child. They have suffered this before and want a chance for their child to leave this world in their arms and with dignity. If there is any chance at all that Baby Joseph can live off life support even if it only for a short time these wishes MUST be respected.The world is speaking. It is time for you to do the right thing.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
