    The baby who was hours from being pulled off life support at his Canadian hospital has been rescued by the national director of Priests for Life and taken to the U.S. for treatment.

    Thirteen-month-old Joseph Maraachli, who is currently kept alive by a respirator and was recently denied a transfer to a Michigan hospital to undergo a tracheotomy, arrived in the U.S. early Monday morning with Fr. Frank Pavone and other Priests for Life staff.

    Wonder what these Priests know that the Canadian Doctors don't know?

    Is this Priest going to pay for his medical care?

    Maraachli was on his way to SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis, Mo., a non-profit health-care facility open to all children in need of medical care.







    I don't know, but I'd guess not.

    Maybe it will be pro bono medical care.

    I'd hope that Medicaid was not billed.

    I know. I'd hate to see him saved when it costs money to feed the little grub.

    Expect a drive-by from Care now freaking out over the horror of an imperfect child, and bemoaning the fact he wasn't killed previously.

    I think it's simply the disagree on this point:
    "The medical board overseeing his case is apparently convinced that giving proper care to 'Baby Joseph' is futile," the website reads. "They don’t mean that the medical care won’t help him. They mean his life in its current condition isn’t worth the trouble."

    Canadian health care is over rated.

    I heard since their health care is free they have long waiting lists for certain procedures, and Canadians actually come down here for more quicker efficient care. The only advantage the Canadians have is that its free.
