A horrific story out of Canada.
From the Toronto Sun:
"A court appeal to stop doctors from removing a 13-month-old baby boy's breathing tube was denied Thursday, ending a Windsor couple's tragic fight to take their son home to die.
The parents accept that, barring a miracle, it as almost certain the little boy will die.
Joseph Maraachli, who's been in the London Health Science Centre's pediatric critical care unit since last fall, suffers from a terminal respiratory and neurological disorder.
Ontario's consent and capacity board recently agreed with doctors last month the boy's breathing tube be removed.
His parents, who lost a daughter to the same disorder eight years ago, had hoped to have a tracheotomy inserted and be allowed to take the child home to die peacefully.
Again, the parents accept that, barring a miracle, it as almost certain the little boy will die. They simply want to bring their own son to their own home, so he can die surrounded by those who love him. A government is denying them this right.
In her decision, an emotional Superior Court Justice Helen Rady said it was "a sad and difficult case" and praised the child's parents, Moe Maraachli and Sana Nader, for their dedication.
That "praise" is simply adding insult to injury.
But she said the baby has no brain stem reflex and is in a permanent vegetative state.
A deadline to take the baby off life support had been set for Friday, but Rady ordered the family to comply by Monday at 10 a.m., "to afford the family adequate time to say their goodbyes."
That's sounds just like a movie villain telling his victim "say your prayers" before shooting him.
Out side of court, the boy's father broke down in tears and called doctors "killers."
Which certainly makes sense.
