    Pretty shocking they wouldn't allow the parents to take him abroad for alternative treatments. Looks like the march towards Totalitarianism continues. Very sad.


    By Dr. Ron Paul

    Twenty-three-month-old Alfie Evans, passed away in a British hospital on Saturday. While the official cause of death was a degenerative brain disease, Alfie may have been murdered by the British health system and the British high court. Doctors at the hospital treating Alfie decided to remove his life support, against the wishes of Alfie’s parents. The high court not only upheld the doctors’ authority to override the parents’ wishes, it refused to allow the parents to take Alfie abroad for treatment.

    In upholding the government’s authority to substitute its judgment for that of Alfie’s parents, the high court is following in the footsteps of authoritarians throughout history. Ever since Plato, supporters of big government have sought to put government in charge of raising children. The authoritarianism of a system where “experts” can override parents is underscored by a police warning that they were “monitoring” social media posts regarding Alfie.

    Alfie’s case is not just an example of the dangers of allowing government to usurp parental authority or the failures of socialized medicine. It shows the logical result of the widespread acceptance of the idea that rights are mere privileges bestowed by Government...

    When are folks gonna get it? Our rights are not mere 'privileges' bestowed by Government. We're born with our rights. We don't have to grovel at the Government's feet, begging for it to allow us our rights. We have them regardless.

    Yeah, i'm stunned the British People have allowed this to happen to their country. It's like what Dr. Paul said, so many folks have been indoctrinated to believe that their rights are mere 'privileges' bestowed by Government. They need to let go of that dangerous thinking.

    Alfie had rights as well. The court protected those rights.

    Should have allowed the family to travel abroad and try other treatments. The Nanny State in Great Britain is out of control. I really am stunned the People have allowed it to happen. It's very sad.

    It's amazing how often progressive twats like yourself choose to champion the "rights" of things that can't speak for themselves.

    Animals, trees, infants about to die... It's almost like you just want something to control as a way to force yourself and your views onto others....

    He had a right to die?

    Amazing how people who consider that the paramount "right", far more important than trivial things like the right to live, never EVER seem to want to exercise it for themselves.
