|Baby Charlie Gard has essentially been kidnapped
from his parents, a violation of his rights & theirs.
The Vatican Flubs It on Parents' Rights and the Life of a Vulnerable Baby!
Really...should we be surprised? The Pontifical Academy for Life's new member roundup includes a number of anti-life advocates. One is pro-abortion, another is pro-euthanasia. Consider the statement on Baby Charlie Gard in that light. It completely ignores the fact that parents, not doctors or courts, have the right to make choices for their children (Obviously we aren't talking about parents who have their rights removed because they abuse or neglect their children.)
The Vatican statement could justify the decision of parents to end the struggle over the baby's treatment (too burdensome to the child, too expensive, extraordinary treatment, etc.); but in no way can it justify what is a medical and judicial kidnapping of Baby Charlie over the objections of his parents. The parents raised the money to treat their baby and found a doctor willing to do it. What gives other doctors and the courts the right to override the parents? They are being denied even the right to take him home to die. It's outrageous!

and 16 month captivity.
Hillary said it and she meant it. Children belong to the state village. This is one more important reason to fight liberalism. Liberals think they can make a Utopia and it includes replacing parents lest children be raised with the "wrong" values -- you know -- those antiquated values that honor God above the latest zeitgeist. It's what happens when politicians and courts claim that society knows better how to rear children than their parents do.
Kidnappings by government and courts are becoming more and more common. Legal kidnapping is a way of life for some school and protective services counselors pushing the gay agenda. The abuses by child protective services around the country are legion. There's a lot of money in it and, as Christians become targeted more and more as demented and unfit, it's likely to get worse. Consider what happened in Ontario recently where where legislators passed bill 89 allowing the state to remove children from Christian parents who reject the LGBTQ agenda.
Pray and fight, folks. Do it for yourself and for your children and grandchildren.
