Canadian government will kill baby Joseph on Monday...Updated

Why government health care is a seriously BAD idea...
The father of baby Joseph told LifeSiteNews, "Monday at 10:00 a.m. they will kill my baby.  There's no more humanity.  There's no more chance.  I've tried everything for him.  No more appeals, nothing.  I asked them, why not send him to Windsor and let him die at home?  They said they will give him injection, but I don't want to."

"I ask God, and maybe he breathe," he added.  "I do my best for my baby.  My son is not a criminal. to just let him die."
"They are taking my baby from me.  Where is the humanity?"
Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, who has been communicating with the parents, says this makes no sense whatsoever.  "I don't get it.  There's nothing here I get.  It makes no sense.  What is in this for the hospital and doctors?  Why would they bother doing this?  Is it that they want to simply say, we have control?  If it's about their control, then we're in serious trouble.  They now control when someone lives and when someone dies, and who makes those decisions and how those decisions are made."  
Schadenberg said the court appears to be saying that hospitals and doctors can make decisions for patients whether they like it or not.  "It's worse than the death panel concept that's being debated in the U.S.  It really is, it's much worse.  They're saying, 'We will decide.' They're not even going to converse with you.  'We have the weight of the Court, we have the financial bearing of a massive government institution to be able to force this on you.'"

And it seems that's not the only big anti-life action in Canada this week as a Catholic priest sues LifeSiteNews for $500,000 in an effort to shut it down. Fr. Raymond gravel is suing the pro-life organization for libel, insisting that it was the sites reports about him that cost him his position in public office and his position as chief catechist for his diocese. 

This is the same priest who publicly stated in 2004 that “I am pro-choice and there is not a bishop on earth that will prevent me from receiving Communion, not even the Pope.”

Thank God the Vatican took action against him forcing him to reveal his truest colors as an enemy of life. That it took this kind of intervention before his bishop would remove him is outrageous.
