Baby Joseph Maraachi is finally free from the clutches of the Canadian hospital that was, in effect, clamoring for the baby's demise. See the Fox News report here. After hearing from thousands of good people who beseiged them via phone calls, letters and emails, they finally released the boy to Father Frank Pavone, director of Priests for Life who then had him flown by medical jet to SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis, MO. The last I heard was that doctors there were reassessing his condition. At the very least, the little guy will live out his last days in a humane, dignified manner.
We all, of course, owe thanks to God for saving the baby's life. We must also draw some serious lessons. In that Canadian hospital we see an ominous preview of the degradation of our own health care system should Obamacare ever be fully implemented. Our own loved ones, and yes we ourselves may find our lives in dire peril - and there will be no US hospital to which to flee.
