Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Did the Notorious AntiCatholicism of British Aristocracy Play a Role in Alfie Evans Case?
Prayers ascending for Alfie's parents. Two 20-year-olds whose names are Love and Courage. So proud of them. Alfie was a baptized Catholic who died before the age of reason, so we can say with confidence, he went straight to Heaven.
A few thoughts and lessons learned about socialized medicine and letting your country fall into the rabbit hole morally-bankrupt Machiavellian political power.
1. When Tom and Kate first brought concerns to Alfie's pediatricians, they were told Alfie was just lazy. Here's a reality check: As it turned out, its was the doctors practicing socialized medicine who were being lazy.
2. When it became clear that doctors at Alder Hey did not have the knowledge and resources to determine what was wrong with Alfie and treat him, they refused to refer him to doctors and facilities with greater expertise and resources. They held Alfie hostage to their limitations until his condition deteriorated beyond his ability to full-recover.
3. At this point, Alfie's doctors began to recommend the best course for Alfie was to let him die.
There is much speculation that Alfie's diagnosis is medical malpractice or a possible reaction to Britain's aggressive immunization schedule and the refusal to refer him to another facility is a cover-up. This is certainly within the realm of possibilities. Alder Hey is notorious for egregious ethical violations, including unauthorized removal of organs and retention of children's bodies in their basement.
Here's where it starts to get complicated:
4. When a hospital decides it is going to stop treating a patient, people who are free have the ability to say "bye Felicia", pack up their belongings and walk out the door.
We are free to accept an offer from the Pope for free medical care and step into his helicopter loaded with doctors and resources to care for us. Or, we are free to come to terms with the futility of further treatment and hitch a ride back home to die in the comfort of our own homes, surrounded by the things and people who love us.
In the US, we do have doctors, hospitals and insurance companies make life and death decisions about health care. This is a necessity.
We also have judges who have the authority to take legal control away from the parents of minor children. This is also a sad necessity.
These two infrastructures need people in them who have right judgment and the resources to treat or care for sick or at-risk children. Problems start to develop in both of these infrastructures when we elect morally-bankrupt politicians.
There are US cases that intercede when the religious convictions of a parent prevent a sick child from antibiotics and surgeries that will cure their maladies. There are also US cases where doctors obtained legal authority over minor children in cases of suspected Maunchhausen by proxy or neglect.
To the best of my knowledge, there is no case in US history where the doctors who refuse to treat a patient obtained legal authority to instead imprison a child in a hospital for the purposes of keeping him from people who want to help him and starving him to death. This is a new low.
And this one is the most important...
4. Doctors stated the reason they were preventing parents from taking Alfie home to die was not a medical issue, but was related to an 'attitude' of the parents.
Doctors actually admitted they were using the powers of police and the court to prevent Alfie from dying at home to take revenge for criticism directed towards them by his parents. The extraordinary cruelty of using a dying child for revenge is corruption of power of the worst kind.
What reason could their possibly be to prevent a child from receiving free health care at another facility? Especially when it's an offer from the Pope?
What would the possible motive be for imprisoning a child in a medical facility whom you've stopped treating for the purposes of killing him?
It's important to analyze what's gone awry in the UK. The US is well on its way to surrendering our freedom to totalitarianism. We are not there yet and if we never want to arrive there, the time is now to do everything within our means to reverse eight years of power with Democrats in control of our three branches of government.
The British aristocracy has a long history of conducting themselves like murdering savages incapable of mercy. Does socialized medicine grant the license necessary to subjugate citizens to the oppressive cruelty of political barbarians?
Or was something more sinister at play?
Who wouldn't respect an offer from the Pope? Why, if it cost them nothing and they were not treating a patient, would they obstruct him from being walked 50 feet to hop on a mediflight? Something stinks.
Sadly, I think its entirely within the realm of possibilities that Alfie was a victim of notorious antiCatholicism in the UK.
Whatever has gone awry, if we don't want our relatives to be subjected to the cruelty of revenge of reprobates, we need to put enormous effort into preventing it from happening in the US.
We dodged a canon with Trump. Moving forward, it is critical to use our voting power to keep socialists/communist/democrats out of office. (More on this later.)
Finally, speaking of miscreants, this case once again demonstrated we're not going to have the help of Bishops in the Catholic Church. As physicians surrounded Alfie by police to kill him by cutting off nutrition and hydration, the bishop of Liverpool ran into the public square to claim the attempted murder was 'doing everything humanly possible' for Alfie.
In 2004, Pope John Paul II addressed a group of physicians in Rome, saying: “I should like particularly to underline how the administration of water and food, even when provided by artificial means, always represents a natural means of preserving life, not a medical act. Its use, furthermore, should be considered, in principle, ordinary and proportionate, and as such morally obligatory, insofar as and until it is seen to have attained its proper finality, which in the present case consists in providing nourishment to the patient and alleviation of his suffering.
It is clear that "by euthanasia in the true and proper sense must be understood an action or omission which by its very nature and intention brings about death, with the purpose of eliminating all pain"; such an act is always "a serious violation of the law of God, since it is the deliberate and morally unacceptable killing of a human person".
The teachings of the Church convict the bishop of Liverpool of lying.
Bishops are right where they always have been when our people are being slaughtered: Licking our blood from the swords of our murderers, twisting the teachings of the Church to help them get elected, defending their crimes against humanity to help them stay in office.
Children, let us love not in word or speech
but in deed and truth.
Now this is how we shall know that we belong to the truth
and reassure our hearts before him
in whatever our hearts condemn,
for God is greater than our hearts and knows everything.
