Literally a panel that determines who lives and who dies… that’s what you get with socialized medicine, folks!
Sorry, but I would do anything and everything in my power to do whatever I could for my child in such a circumstance. How could they even deny allowing them to come to America for treatment?
With that, our President has chosen to support this couple and their child.
As Written BY JONATHAN EASLEY for The Hill:
President Trump on Monday offered to help a critically ill British child who has become a flashpoint in the U.K. debate over whether the government should have a say in individual matters pertaining to life and death.
Trump tweeted his support for Charlie Gard, a 10-month-old infant on life support due to complications from a mitochondrial disease. The controversy around Gard has engulfed the Vatican, which infuriated some on the right by not immediately siding entirely with the parents, who want to seek experimental medication in the U.S. or bring their child home to die.
“If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so,” Trump tweeted.

Gard’s case has created an international uproar and sparked debate over whether the government should be able to mandate “death with dignity” over a family’s wishes to seek out experimental medication for their sick child.
Gard was born with a rare genetic condition and cannot move or breathe on his own.
His parents want to bring him to the U.S. to seek experimental medication or take him home so they can spend their final hours together.
