I hate this: Starving and dehydrating babies to death.



The story from the UK:
Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.
Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults.
But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies. - Go here for the rest of the story.
 
Why do we allow this?  Why do we kill children, babies?  Why do we bomb civilians, starve kids in China and North Korea?  Why do we tolerate abortion?  And now - why do we kill innocent babies and children, in the most atrocious, loveless, inhumane manner possible?  Without nutrition or hydration, without touch, without love?

And yet we worry so about ourselves, our happiness, our comfort, our health,  our sexuality, our finances, our recovery, our status and self-importance, our religion and our faith. 

Is there any faith left on earth?

  1. When I think of nations that are basically taunting God and asking for condemnation, the US is way up there, but the UK seems to be trying to race to te head of the pack.

    I'm sorry I worry so much about myself - I mean it.
