    As the father of a 2-month-old, I can only imagine the horror the parents of 11-month-old Charlie Gard are going through. No words, no thoughts or prayers, or even time, will be able to wipe away their pain. But that pain did not have to be so great, and it may not have had to have been at all were it not for the single-payer health care system in the United Kingdom and the bureaucrats politicians who rallied to keep Charlie a prisoner to it. Gard was born with a rare genetic disease that was working to destroy his body....
  • Charlie Gard's Parents Give Up – and You're Next

    the hospital and the British Parliament will make suitably grave remarks about how tragic it is to lose "this beautiful baby" (whom they killed), and how much their hearts go out to "his loving parents" (whom they stripped of their rights, their dignity, and their baby). But the public outcry will die down; Charlie's death will, given the time-distorting elasticity of memory, begin to look like a vindication (rather than condemnation) of the government's decision; and the real issues at the heart of this case – progressivism's crushing of the private family and socialized medicine's absolute rejection of the natural...
  • Charlie Gard`s parents withdraw request for change to original order

    Charlie Gard will be allowed to die after his parents today made the heartbreaking decision to let him 'slip away'. Chris Gard and Connie Yates arrived at the High Court in tears as they ended a campaign to save his life that has touched millions around the world. They have battled for six months for their beloved 11-month-old son to be flown to the US for pioneering drugs to treat his rare strain of mitochondrial disease. But they have now decided to let him die clearly believing that Great Ormond Street's refusal to let him travel to a New York...

    Two GOP Congressmen have proposed that the U.S. grant Charlie Gard and his family permanent residency status, according to the Daily Caller. Arizona Rep. Trent Franks and Ohio Rep. Brad Wenstrup proposed the legislation on Friday. Check it out: “Despite Charlie’s heartbreaking condition, his parents have refused to give up hope. They have advocated for him fiercely. They have raised over £1 million to pay for their son to receive experimental treatment in the United States. They have kept fighting for his life,” Wenstrup and Franks said in a joint statement. They added, “Our bill will support Charlie’s parents’ right...

    National Review ^ | July 4, 2017 | Wesley J. Smith
    Charlie Gard Has Happened Here Too There is a proper international uproar over UK doctors winning the right in court to unilaterally remove the infant Charlie Gard from life support. Some have commented on the case as if that is a product of the UK’s socialized medical system. It’s not. It is a product of utilitarian bioethics advocacy for the right to refuse wanted life-sustaining treatment–called “futile care”–based on the doctor’s or a hospital bioethics committee’s values on the moral worth of the ill patient’s life and/or the high cost of care Similar authoritarian care withdrawals as has been imposed on...

    DONALD Trump has waded into the fight to save Charlie Gard and offered to help the stricken baby. A British court has ruled that little Charlie – suffering with mitochondrial depletion syndrome – should have his life support machine switched off. But the billionaire US President has joined the battle to help the ten-month-old undergo an experimental treatment in America. He wrote: “If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.” Trump’s words come just one day after Pope Francis added his voice to calls for...

    A European court has ruled that the parents of a critically ill baby cannot privately pay for him to go to the United States for “experimental treatment”, and the child must stay in a British hospital to “die with dignity”. The parents of 10-month-old Charlie Gard are reported to be “utterly distraught” after the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) denied them a final effort to save their dying son. After losing a battle in the UK’s Supreme Court, they had appealed to the court in France to fight the decision of British doctors at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital,...

    However, he says, “what does worry me is the increase in the number of times euthanasia was performed on dementia patients, from 12 in 2009 to 141 in 2016, and on chronic psychiatric patients, from 0 to 60.” He recounts some of the horrific cases of patients of advanced dementia being euthanized without consent, such as one woman whose coffee was drugged, and who when she tried to struggle was held down by her family, and another where a husband mixed sleep medication in the porridge of his demented wife before the GP arrived with his deadly syringe. He describes...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Donald Trump’s bitter rival early on in the 2016 presidential campaign, recently said one prediction he made about the then-candidate has proven true. “When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president. Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now.” Bush made the comments at the SALT hedge-fund conference in Las Vegas Friday and elaborated on his conclusion.

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Sunday that people "should be marching in the streets" to demand changes to "antiquated" education systems that aren't preparing students to be competitive in the job market against the robots of the future. "The looming challenge of automation and artificial intelligence and the rapid advancement of technology brings great benefits but also creates huge challenges," Bush told radio host John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. The threat of a number of jobs being lost to automation is "real," he said. "This is not something that's science fiction. This is happening as we...

    FULL TITLE: Terri Schiavo Archives: A Permanent Place at Ave Maria University for Learning Terri Schiavo's Historic Story PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ -- Terri Schiavo's 2005 death by starvation and dehydration marked the start of America's slide toward treating euthanasia generally, and assisted suicide specifically, as if they were forms of medicine. Knowing the true story of Terri's fight is important for understanding the roots of America's culture of death. Since Terri Schiavo's death, her parents and siblings—Mary and Robert Schindler, and siblings Bobby and Suzanne—have envisioned a supportive, permanent home for the public records that tell the...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's experience in the 2016 Republican presidential primary was apparently enough to make him swear off ever running for political office again. While speaking Thursday at Texas A&M University, where he's spending two weeks teaching a course about governors, Bush admitted that he thinks 2016 was his best — and only — shot at making his presidential dreams a reality. "I unraveled everything I was doing to prepare for this — you don't do that lightly," Bush said. "I just think this was my chance." But Bush swears he's doing okay in spite of his loss....

    In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush makes the case that the incoming Republican administration should set the agenda by calling for a constitutional convention to establish term limits, a balanced budget amendment and restrictions on the Commerce Clause. Bush asserts that the 2016 election was largely a protest vote over the growth and power of the central government and that Republicans have a rare chance to shift some of that power back to the states. Bush wrote: But here’s something we shouldn’t forget: This election was more about voting against something than voting...

    I spent the night of March 30, 2005, in a Florida hospice. I was at the bedside of Terri Schiavo during the last 14 hours of her earthly life, right up until five minutes before her death. During that time with Terri, joined by her brother and sister, I told Terri over and over that she had many friends around the country, many people who were praying for her and were on her side. I told her the same thing during my visits to her in the months before her feeding tube was removed. I am convinced she understood. I’ve...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) used the upcoming New Year's festivities to roast real-estate mogul Donald Trump. Bush's presidential campaign released a web video on Wednesday that sarcastically wished Trump, the Republican front-runner, a happy 2016 - while calling him the "chaos candidate." The ad featured joyful music as it highlighted Trump's top five most "unhinged," "liberal," and "dishonest" moments.

    You knew it was coming at some point before actual voters put paid to it. But a "Jeb Bush comeback" narrative arrived ahead of schedule today with a Michael Brendan Dougherty column at The Week making the case that the former Florida governor is positioned to take a big leap from the political intensive care unit to the GOP presidential nomination. Dougherty's case boils down to three points: First, Marco Rubio ain't exactly setting the world on fire as the presumed successor to Jeb as the Establishment Republican favorite. Second, Jeb's super-pac has an awful lot of money. And third,...

    After insisting that enough damage had been done and swearing off future insults toward Jeb Bush, Donald Trump on Friday returned to badgering his favorite presidential foe. In the fallout of CNN's Republican debate in Las Vegas, Trump has once again taken up needling the former Florida governor. Bush, eager to energize his sagging campaign, brought the fight to Trump on the debate stage, repeatedly talking over the billionaire as the pair tangled. "I have an idea for @JebBush whose campaign is a disaster. Try using your last name & don't be ashamed of it!" he tweeted Friday. I have...

    Jeb Bush's campaign and allies have spent nearly a whopping $33 million in TV and radio advertisements so far this election cycle - almost more than the rest of the current Republican field combined, according to ad-buying data from SMG Delta. The biggest overall advertiser in the 2016 race is Right to Rise, the Super PAC backing Jeb Bush, which has spent $31.7 million in the contest, while the Bush campaign has chipped in an additional $800,000.

    Sure, Jeb Bush can become a leading Republican presidential candidate. It's gonna be tough, but hardly impossible. More and more, voters want someone with government experience and sound political judgment. As election days get closer, they'll seek more depth and nuance about issues. And Bush and his backers also bring a huge pile of campaign cash and a proven network of insiders well-schooled in politics and policy. Bush remains a long-shot, and polls still show him mired deep in single digits. The good news? "You're seeing a little of that (some gains) now," said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk...
