WINDSOR, Ontario, April 21, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Baby Joseph and his family arrived in Windsor, Ontario on a medical transport flight from St. Louis, Missouri this morning. He is now at the family home, according to Brother Paul O’Donnell.
On behalf of Baby Joseph’s family, Brother O’Donnell told LifeSiteNews that that their son was weaned off ventilator support 12 days ago and has been successfully breathing on his own since then.
Baby Joseph, who has been at the center of an international right-to-life debate over the past few months, has defied critics by responding so well to treatment. After the Ontario hospital treating Joseph’s progressive and terminal neurological disease threatened to remove his life support against his parents’ wishes earlier this year, pro-life groups rallied to Joseph’s cause….
How sad that there are so many institutions that give up on life. If we were to have left this up to the London hospital and the Diocese of London, Baby Joseph would have likely been dead by now. Thank God for faithful priests like Fr. Frank Pavone.
Once again this underscores the real need for REPENTANCE in the Catholic Church in Canada and around the world…starting with the bishops.
Thank you, Lord, for revealing your truths to mere children and keeping them from the wise. In their foolish speculations, you have been vindicated.
It is fitting we are entering the season of the Resurrection. Let Baby Joseph remind us all that life is a gift from God — to be respected and cherished.
