If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.
You all know the story of poor little Charlie Gard. He is a little English baby who has a rare disease who the monsters in the English Health Care System want to kill. The doctors in England say there is nothing more to be done and want to take him off life support. His parents want to bring him to the US for some experimental treatments that have no guarantee of working but at least give him a chance. They raised over a million dollars so the National Health Service will not have to spend a penny. But they went to court to kill this baby and were backed up by the globalist scumbags of the European Union.
At first the published opinion of the Catholic Church was that this poor baby should die.
The Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life published this horrible statement:
The proper question to be raised in this and in any other unfortunately similar case is this: what are the best interests of the patient? We must do what advances the health of the patient, but we must also accept the limits of medicine and, as stated in paragraph 65 of the Encyclical Evangelium Vitae, avoid aggressive medical procedures that are . Likewise, the wishes of parents must heard and respected, but they too must be helped to understand the unique difficulty of their situation and not be left to face their painful decisions alone. If the relationship between doctor and patient (or parents as in Charlie’s case) is interfered with, everything becomes more difficult and legal action becomes a last resort, , which is always to be avoided, or of media sensationalism, which can be sadly superficial.
In other words listen to the National Health Service and let your child be taken off life support because it is more convenient and you have to listen to your betters. Never-mind that there are people willing to try to save your child and you raised the money to try. Sit down and shut and let your baby die.
This Pontifical Academy is stuffed with Pope Francis's appointees including an Anglican Theologian who endorses abortion. It is the same deal as what Obama did with the Deep State. He appoints radicals to foster his agenda while keeping his hands clean. These appointments obviously reflect the Popes position as he is busy demoting and exiling Conservatives like Cardinal Burke.
Once the blowblack for the faithful started Pope Francis decided to do some damage control.
