Baby Jayden was born with a strong heartbeat. He moved his arms and legs. But none of that mattered. You see, government regulations state that doctors don’t care for babies born before 23 weeks. And Baby Jayden was two days short of 22 weeks. So he was left untreated. To die. Baby Jayden’s mother said she cried to one doctor, “You have got to help.” And the doctor said, “No we don’t.” He was following the rules. They told the mother just to enjoy the time she had with her baby son.
So for two hours doctors and nurses ignored the baby’s strong heartbeat and the mother’s cries for help until baby Jayden died.
Is this what you want, all you fans of ObamaCare? Is it?
Daily Mail reports:
Doctors left a premature baby to die because he was born two days too early, his devastated mother claimed yesterday.
Sarah Capewell begged them to save her tiny son, who was born just 21 weeks and five days into her pregnancy – almost four months early.
They ignored her pleas and allegedly told her they were following national guidelines that babies born before 22 weeks should not be given medical treatment.
According to the mother, she was told that doctors would have tried to save the baby if he had been born two days later.
James Paget Hospital in Norfolk said it was not responsible for setting the guidelines relating to premature births. A hospital spokesman said: “Like other acute hospitals, we follow national guidance from the British Association of Perinatal Medicine regarding premature births.”
National guidance? Sound an awful lot like the ol’ “we were just following orders” defense.
The guidelines state: “If gestational age is certain and less than 23+0 (i.e at 22 weeks) it would be considered in the best interests of the baby, and standard practice, for resuscitation not to be carried out.”
Guidelines? Standard practice? Never mind that a baby in Florida was born recently at 21 weeks and six days and is doing fine.
But you’ve got to love the guidelines saying what’s in the “best interests” of the baby? Come on. It’s in the best interests of the baby not to give the baby a fighting chance? Pardon me but I get a little tired of hearing the government decide what’s in the “best interests” of people.
Pro-choice punks are all about allowing the mother to decide if the baby’s allowed to live or die until the mother actually decides she wants the baby to live. Then and only then does the government jump in and say sorry, now we actually care about what’s in the best interest of the baby. Then the mother doesn’t get to choose. And guess what? The government decides it’s in the best interests of the baby to die.
This strange death fetish has infected the morals of Western civilization and is destroying it from the inside. This perverted form of mercy that “allows” someone to die as their mother screams for help is a tyrannical sickness that is hollowing us out.
This is where we are folks. Western civilization has progressed itself into a death cult that is on the brink of disappearing forever.
And tonight we’re about to hear a big speech from our President why we should continue marching along in lockstep with the death cult. This is what’s at stake. Make no mistake about it.
