The personal tragedy of the Gard family and their dying baby elicited a spectacle of hypocrisy and grandstanding from Rome to DC.
United Kingdom infant Charlie Gard’s parent’s announced today their baby boy has died, just a week short of his first birthday.
Anyone who’s ever voiced pro-life views has heard the taunt: ‘You’re not pro-life, you’re pro-birth!’ But how true is this claim?
Having denied Charlie’s parents the right to seek treatment, then wasting time through a protracted legal process, the defendants in the case effectively ran out the clock on Charlie.
The ultimate question in Charlie’s case is: who should decide what’s in his best interest? The answer: His parents. Not the courts. Not the hospital. Not the government.
As hospitals seek to mandate the timing of life and death, more states need to affirm the rights of parents to determine the welfare of their children.
If this is where the Vatican now makes its stand, then the most vulnerable members of society—which is to say all of us, at some point—are in trouble.
