Some will say, "well he was going to die anyway" but the point of this story is as Alex Schadenberg so clearly points out.
The baby Joseph case is about who has the right to decide and what is in the best interest of baby Joseph... The law's inequality has resulted in a growing body of precedent-setting cases that constantly increase the power of the doctor/hospital to make medical decisions against the wishes of the family. This must change.
Subsequent to this story follows a story of another child at the Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto who was at first denied a tracheotomy, but has since been given one. One has to wonder if the baby Joseph case has opened some eyes or perhaps made some medical professionals more aware that they are accountable to the public for their decisions.
In any event, kudos to all who helped in this case, Alex Schadenberg, Father Frank Pavone, the Terry Schiavo Life and Hope Network, the Christian Defense Coalition, and LifeSiteNews. If baby Joseph was your child or relative, I think you would want these folks to be there for you too.
