UK: The parents of an 11-month old baby facing imminent death from a rare neurological disease raised over a million dollars to seek treatment in the US. The British socialized health-care system, however, forbids it and says it will shut down the child’s life-support so he may “die with dignity”, in accordance with the UN Convention on Children’s Rights, which replaces parental authority in such matters with government authority. The hospital’s statement says: “A world where only parents speak and decide for children … is far from the world in which [this hospital] treats its child patients.” –GEG
Why is a hospital fighting so hard to block parents with a child dying from a rare condition from getting experimental medical treatment another hospital is offering for free?
Would it damage the reputation of the hospital “revered as one of the world’s best children’s hospitals” if another hospital succeeded where they failed?
Perhaps. But in arguing to kill the baby rather than allowing someone else to treat him, they said “a world where ONLY PARENTS SPEAK & DECIDE FOR CHILDREN and where children have NO SEPARATE IDENTITY or rights and no court to hear & protect them is far from the world in which [this hospital] treats its child patients.”
They may be trying to protect their reputation, but they were appealing to the court and reminding it that it is subject to the UNCCR, the United Nations Convention on Child Rights.
