Tricia has written a post on Baby Charlie. Since she has some thoughtful words on the subject, I suggest you read her post.

Parental Rights

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the name Charlie Gard.  He is the infant child of parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates who have been fighting a desperate battle with the British State to prevent their son from being put to death against their will.

Charlie was born with infantile onset encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion.   It’s an extremely rare disease that affects tissues in the muscle, liver and brain.  There is no cure and most die in infancy or early childhood.  Charlie is unable to breath on his own, has brain damage and frequent seizures. (continued here)

In addition, Delegate Bob Marshall has been following the story. Here is his latest email.

President Trump Vows to
Help Baby Charlie!

Dear Friends,

President Trump has decided to use his influence to help save Baby Charlie Gard! (click the link to see the article)

I am certain that hearing from you and other folks around the country on this issue are part of what brought it to his attention.  I can’t thank you enough for taking action.

I believe President Trump takes seriously the words of our Declaration, that all men are created equal and endowed by our Creator with the rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.  Thank you, President Trump!

Please ask family and friends to contact President Trump to ask for his continued support for Baby Charlie. 

Thank you so much for your help!

When we consider the issue of government-run healthcare, what is the biggest problem with it? It is who gets to make the decisions. Think about the so-called Pro-Choice crowd’s big argument: “It is my body.” Yet here we have the same crowd demanding the right to make life and death decisions for other people.

Exaggeration? Because politicians will be paying the bills, when the government runs our healthcare, bureaucrats appointed by politicians will decide who gets healthcare and when. The hand that pays the bills decides. And those officials, some quite prideful and wise in their own eyes, will resent being overruled by parents or even patients. After all, even if the bodies we are talking about are our bodies, they know more than we do. They are the “experts”.

  1. “When we consider the issue of government-run healthcare, what is the biggest problem with it? It is who gets to make the decisions.”

    Well said, Tom. Who gets to make the decisions, indeed. It is not just the denial of care that can become a problem, but also mandated care that undermines parental rights. So where I live kids 14 and up must be granted full access to birth control and abortion, without parental consent or notification. Recently there has been a lawsuit extending that to gender reassignment surgery. So kids who are not yet legally allowed to own property can now have both an abortion and a pretty major, life altering surgery.

    It’s not just parental authority being undermined either,but doctors and health care providers, several who have been blowing the whistle, others who have quit their jobs in protest. When you’re a doctor being mandated to do something you believe is unethical, that’s very challenging.

    1. Well, the “pro-choice” crowd is itching to force doctors to do abortions. Why not gender reassignment on 6 year old children.

      If a teacher thinks little child thinks a little child should have a sex change and the child is convinced, what is the problem if the parents disagree? What is the problem if doctors don’t want to do surgery of that sort. The government is paying their bills.

      When the Beast runs the world, what is good will be called evil and what is evil will be called good. Everyone will be required to perform “loyalty tests”. Everyone will be required to do what the Beast calls good. Can you imagine the horror of being a doctor or a nurse in such a world? Can you imagine being an unwilling patient?
