    Prayers For Alfie



    For those who think that government run healthcare has merit...... Please consider the case of Alfie Evans in the UK. Alfie is 23 months of age and very ill. The hospital there has determined to remove life support against the wishes of his parents following a series of court cases. The courts in the UK have ruled that his parents are not permitted to take him home nor to another hospital for treatment. They are not permitted to bring him a donated C-pap or Bi-pap machine to help him breathe after the hospital removed life support Monday. They are not permitted to feed him themselves. They are only permitted to watch their little boy die.

    As of now, Alfie is breathing on his own (hospital claimed he couldn't) and only following public outcry, the hospital has finally fed him once since Monday and he is (barely) surviving without further care. The Italian government has granted Alfie Italian citizenship and has sent a military plane that has been waiting for days now to transfer him to a hospital in Italy, but the government and the courts in the UK have sided with the UK hospital and against his parents' wishes, won't allow him to be taken elsewhere for treatment. The German government has an air ambulance waiting nearby to transport him as well. Even so...... The government and courts and the hospital there in the UK seem determined to kill this little boy and the wishes of his parents and of others who want to help him don't mean a thing to them.

    Next time anyone tells you what a wondrous thing it would be to entrust your life and your healthcare to a government run system...... Remember this little boy and put yourself or your loved ones in his place......

    They celebrate the birth of one child and at the same time condemn the life of another.They are completely lacking in the Biblical term VIRTUE.(Morals.) I share in prayer with millions across GOD`S WORLD they will release him to go to the waiting Catholic Hospital in Italy.

    This is a horrific situation. It is far worse in Britain than I realized. I hope America wakes up to the consequences of where we are heading. I pray for God's intervention for Alfie.
    Thanks, Doug

    What a horrible story of government gone wrong. Remember the talk about "death panels" when Obamacare was coming? They have them and it's obvious it's not a good thing.

    It's one thing not to pay for the care. It's quite another to not allow it at all, even elsewhere, or not to allow the kid to go home or to even feed him. It's just so wrong on so many counts.

    You may recall as well, the recent case of the father who saved his son's life at Tomball Regional Hospital just North of Houston......

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.23f76af3437c

    There is a lot more to the story than what is printed in the article I linked to above. I heard the live radio interview of Mr. Pickering earlier this week. You can find it here on podcast...... Look at April 25 and 26, 2018 entries...... George Pickering Interview......

    https://www.iheart.com/podcast/139-T...4850/episodes/

    Mr. Pickering's lawyer phoned in and is in the interview, as well. After going over records subpoenaed from the hospital and statements made by the nurse who attempted to euthanize (nurse's own words as noted in police report) his son by giving him a lethal injection both during the time Mr. Pickering was in his son's hospital room and following the standoff with SWAT after SWAT medical team members independently confirmed that Mr. Pickering's son was in fact responsive and not 'brain dead' as the doctors at Tomball Hospital had claimed...... Mr. Pickering's lawyer found disturbing evidence that...... Well, I'll let you listen to it yourselves. I'll only say that she was so disturbed by what she found in hospital records of this and other cases that she stated during the interview that she has changed her own designation on her drivers license to no longer be an organ donor.

    You really have to listen to this from beginning to end to understand how this man nearly forfeited his own life to save his son. I might add that Mr. Pickering's son had been in the hospital less than 24 hours following his stroke when this incident took place and he interceded to keep hospital staff from killing his son.

    But thanks to G-d and a loving father, Mr. Pickering's son was up and walking within weeks following his stroke. And his father would do it all over again, including the lengthy periods he spent in jail following this incident and even accepting a plea bargain rather than fighting the case in court so he could get out of jail on time served after the better part of a year and see to his son's recovery.

    Best regards to all,

    Harry

    Alfie Evans has passed. He is in a better place now, both far from those who loved him and fought to save him...... And far from those who made sure he would die. I have no words.

    prayers sent. It is the only thing that can save this little guy from the life destructive government. I would be tempted to take him and flee to another country but of course that would take some medical stabilization. I just do not get it!!!!!
