UK: Merseyside Police threatened people posting messages on social media who oppose the decision by the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to remove the life support system from Alfie Evans, a 23-month old baby, which amounts to a death sentence, which is a consequence of socialized medicine and governmental control over health. Alfie Evans fell into a coma a year ago from a mystery illness. The doctors said it is in the baby’s best interest to stop the mechanical ventilation, and his parents lost their court battle to take the child to Italy for treatment. They have been denied the right to take him home.
