Canadian infant denied medical treatment! End-of-Life Care, Too Costly?!

A hospital in Ontario Canada is turning a deaf ear to the pleas of Moe Maraachli and Sana Nader, parents of a 13 year old child who is suffering from a fatal neuro-degenerative disease.

The parents pleaded with physicians at the London Health Sciences Center in Ontario to perform a tracheotomy on their son, Joseph, in order to prolong his life, but to no avail. The Canadian health care system ruled in favor of the hospital, saying the tracheotomy would needlessly prolong the baby's life. The couple had a child eight years ago with the same disease, who lived for six months after a tracheotomy. A hospital in Michigan also has refused to perform the procedure.

The Canadian hospital disingenuously claimed that the baby was in a vegetative state, however, videos of the infant clearly indicate otherwise. Watch the video here.

The Canadian death facilitators initially sought to remove the baby's respiratory tube in the hospital, but finally agreed to transfer the infant to his home before removing his life support. [The parents, however, said they first heard about this offer, not from the hospital, but from the media on Monday.] The hospital, nevertheless, still refuses to perform the tracheotomy.

[Joseph Maraachli's [the aforementioned infant's] non-vegetative state is non-debatable, however, Schiavo's parents also maintained that their daughter had shown signs of comprehension. (Nevertheless, even if Schiavo was indeed in a vegetative state, removing her life support and denying her fluids to drink - and ultimately facilitating her demise, was, at best, an extremely immoral and ignoble act.]
