LONDON, Ontario, February 22, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - While things were looking up for the parents of Joseph Maraachli this past weekend, the picture has now become bleaker. In the latest twist in the case the London hospital where their dying son is being cared for is seeking to remove the parents’ decision-making power after they refused to have him taken off life support. Hospital security is also denying them private visitations.So what do they have against the poor baby and his parents anyway? They wanted to get rid of him - they got it, another hospital has agreed to take the baby. So why can't they just leave him alone? Why are they so eager to take him off life support?
Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, which has been offering support to the parents, Moe Maraachli and Sana Nader, says they are now only allowed to see their son with a security guard present.
“They fight my family. ... they put security for me. They never give me private to pray with my son,” Moe told Fox News this afternoon.
Apparently what angers them is that there's someone out there who dares to question their opinion. They think they know best; so if they are convinced that baby Joseph's life is not worthy of preserving and that his parents would be better off without him - they're willing to go as far as deliberately causing the baby's death to prove their point.
Shame on them.
