|Our Lady of Life, pray for us.|
Doctors and judges aren't gods. Unfortunately, many of them are confused and think they are. And so they make decisions about the "quality" of life of patients and often devalue those that, in their godlike opinions, just don't measure up.
Charlie Gard has taught us a lot. He's taught us that many parents don't have the right to make medical decisions for their children any more. He's taught us that many doctors resemble Dr. Mengele more than Dr. Schweitzer and that radical judges and courts are modern "Big Brothers."
And he's taught us that the spirit of the Third Reich is alive and well in the U.K.
Just as doctors and judges devalued life in Germany through the T4 euthanasia program, the doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London followed in the footsteps of those sames doctors who put checks next to the names of the retarded, WW I amputees, and other "useless eaters" marked for death.
