If you want a picture of what socialized medicine looks like, you need look no further than this article from the Daily Mail in England. In this article a 23-year-old mother gives birth to an extremely premature baby–only 22 weeks and five days of gestational development–and the doctors refuse to treat the baby. The national health care guidelines in England apparently do not allow doctors to treat premature babies born before 23 weeks. So, this little baby missed the magic window by 2 days.
Rather than treat the baby, who was born alive and breathing and lived for two hours, the doctors told the mother that “it was in the baby’s best interests to die.”
This is shocking!
Someone once defined insanity as “Trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” There are many documented cases of this type of thing. If the American Government and the American People think “ObamaCare” will be any different they are simply insane.
I usually do not write about “political” things. Make no mistake, this is not a political issue. This issue is about our very existence as a Constitutional Republic, our freedom as a individuals, and our ability as Christians to “fight” for life.
Will we stand idly by and watch as children die because they were born too early? Will we acquiesce and say it would be better for someone to die (even at 22 weeks) than to live a life with a disability?
This system and thinking is better suited for Soviet Russia or Fascist Germany under Hitler. Nothing about this is “American.”
