From LSN’s report here.
“If there is a chance this boy can live, we have to explore every option,” said Fr. Pavone in a Fox News report. “Now that we have won the battle against the medical bureaucracy in Canada, the real work of saving Baby Joseph can begin.”
The Canadian death panel lost….this time. But Father Frank can’t be around to air-lift all Canadian babies or even adults out of danger every time. We have to step to the plate.
Joseph’s previous hospital, London Health Sciences Centre, which refused to perform the tracheostomy and had sought to remove his ventilator against his parents’ wishes, defended their care of Joseph again in a press release Monday. They insisted he was taken from the hospital “despite the strongest possible medical advice.”
Yes, yes. We know! We know! Death is the answer! Death is the answer! We know. That’s what the death panel is all about, after all. Memo to the death panel: that baby is not yours. Get it? You work for us. Not the other way around. If this sad spectacle and perverse morality is not enough to kill socialized medicine in this culture of death, then frankly nothing is. I say: down with socialized “medicine”. Give us private insurance and give us back control over our own health care.
Do you know what I think? I think that this baby is going to live. I think we are going to have a little miracle. Maybe I’m wrong. But if I’m not, the London Health Sciences Centre and all the death panels out there are going to hear about it.
The hospital complained that their doctors and staff “were targeted by well-organized social media feeds and directly via email with personal threats, threats to their families, innuendos and falsehoods.”
Oh stop. Do you not expect some people to go overboard in their reaction to your thuggish behaviour? Let’s get serious. But thanks for visiting Socon or Bust several times and affirming us, just the same. And, of course, we owe a great deal of thanks and appreciation to LifeSiteNews who were on it like a Lila Rose bust on a Planned Parenthood Clinic. Once again we see the huge place that LifeSiteNews, accompanied by the social media, has had in defending the sanctity of human life. Cyber pressure on the hospital postponed the plug being pulled to save that baby’s life, just in time for the Little Joseph to be whisked away from the Death Panel’s clutches. Two hours later and he would have been dead.
Once again, let me just say how profoundly disappointed I am in Salt+Light TV, Bishop Fabbro of London, and the rest of the Catholic hierarchy who raised not finger or wimper about such an important life and death event which occurred literally in their own backyard. Because, you know, “they never set themselves up in opposition to something or someone.”
They’re just sweet lolipops.
Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised that the Diocese of London did sweet jack all. It fits right in with their proportionalistic philosophy on human life. And while the CEO priest of our “Channel of Hope” talks the line, the bloggers, the Catholic Facebook Community, and independent news agencies who aren’t under the thumb of the Professional Catholic crowd are actually walking the talk. But, of course, that sometimes means rattling cages to save lives, and for the Professional Catholic crowd, that’s just way too Taliban for them. No dirt under our fingernails, please!
It took an American priest and incredible amount of money and legwork to pull this off, and he got zilch support from the Canadian hierarchy. They were too stoned on social justice to care about an innocent baby being refused the simple human dignity of medical treatment to allow him to live out the remainder of his precious little life.
But, hey, hey! Not too worry, folks. All those brave bishops – the very same ones who should have been speaking up about this sad spectacle – will be processing up the centre aisle at the March for Life masses to show us all just how pro-life they are.
Once a year…just like clock work.
We should all bring rose pedals and throw them at their feet as they make their way up to the altar, clap loudly, and shout in our best Italian voices, “Bravo! Bravo!, Couragio! Couragio!“
