Today the parents of Baby Charlie Gard, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, ended their legal battle to bring their baby to the United States for experimental treatment. In their statement outside the court room today, Mr. Gard rightly excoriated the legal system for mandating that Charlie go for months without treatment, thus greatly reducing his chances at survival.
LifeNews reported on a statement made by Judge Francis, who imperiously ruled that the state could usurp the God-given rights of parents to protect their children. As you read this you'll see the unbridled arrogance and haughtiness of this judge, as he represents England's legal system and the socialistic National Health Service that holds so much sway in England. His statement is reminiscent of behaviors evinced by tyrants throughout history who have ruled for their power over innocent people He and the other bureaucrats will have the blood of that baby on their hands, barring a miracle whereby Charlie survives after being pulled off life support. Moreover, those who shrugged their shoulders in apathy, and who continue to do so as thousands of babies are slaughtered via abortion each day, will share both in blood-guilt and in responsibility for the collapse of Christian civilization.
This is one reason why Obamacare must be abolished in this country NOW. In England, the death panels just had their way with a helpless baby.
UPDATE: More details from Connie Yates, Charlie's mother.
