An Infant Was Being Denied Life-Saving Care By The UK, So Another Country Granted Her Citizenship
The British “Single-Payer” Health Care model is falling apart in front of our eyes. Many problems with Britain's system are rooted in the bureaucratic decision-making that governs the health of tens of millions of people.
The very dynamics of this bureaucratic model not only contribute to long waiting lists but also to denials of care.
Subsequently, if hospital officials determine that your child's life is hopeless, they have the legal ability to deny parents their right to provide for their child.
Italy has granted citizenship to eight-month-old Indi Gregory after a judge in the UK upheld a previous opinion to end life support, according to Sky News. The infant has a rare mitochondrial disease.
Baby Indi Gregory's situation is one of a series of cases in Britain in which doctors and the courts have stopped families from leaving Britain for medical treatment and essentially barring them from doing what they deem necessary to try and save the life of their child.
The case will be reviewed as a judge said last week that the baby could not be transported to Italy.
The Vatican’s pediatric hospital, Bambino Gesu, in Rome, has offered to care for Indi Gregory, and the Italian government has offered to pay for any treatment “that is deemed necessary.”
“They say there isn't much hope for little Indi, but until the very end, I'll do what I can to defend her life,'' Premier Giorgia Meloni said in a post on Facebook. “And to defend the right of her mamma and papa to do all that they can for her.”
Americans should take this as a lesson. When government officials control health care, they subsequently have control over your life.
“My heart fills up with joy that the Italians have given Claire and I hope and faith back in humanity. The Italians have shown us care and loving support and I wish the U.K. authorities were the same,” Gregory’s father, Dean, said in a statement, according to the National Catholic Register.
According to US News, the judge said there was no evidence that experimental treatments would improve the child’s quality of life and that it is possible that transferring her to Rome would increase any “distress and suffering” she may have.
The point of “experimental” treatment is that it's experimental. Of course, there won’t be any evidence it will help because it has yet to be tested. But it’s not a stretch to say that many people's lives have been saved due to experimental treatment. And by denying the infants the right to try treatment, they are denying the infant her right to life.
Even if hospital officials are technically correct in assessing the child’s condition as medically terminal, they are wrong in denying her parents the right to try alternative medical treatment.
When bureaucratic decision-making has reduced medical judgments, they get to implement decisions that may also be cruel and arguably evil.
One of the many things the Panny D taught us is that when the “experts” are given free rein to make medical decisions, calamity is inevitable.
