The last few hours of developments in the Alfie Evans story have been climactic and emotional, but also tragic and utterly horrifying. The 23-month-old little boy suffers from a rare degenerative brain disorder and, as you’ve probably read by now, was recently taken off his ventilator at London’s Alder Hey hospital. The European psychopaths who call themselves doctors — while playing God — have declared that Alfie’s life is simply not worth saving. In fact, they argue that, because of his brain condition, his life wouldn’t even be worth living, so the best thing to do is go ahead and murder him now while he’s two-years-old, rather than allow his parents to seek professional treatment in Italy — treatment that could potentially save his life.
Italy even sent an air ambulance and granted Alfie citizenship in a desperate effort to rescue the child. Of course, this was all for naught as London police officers were put in place to prevent it from happening. The boy should die, they said. If we can't save him, then no one can.
Now a judge has ruled that Alfie may return home, but that his parents cannot leave the country to seek better medical care in Rome for Alfie’s condition. In other words, the courts have sentenced this child to die as his mother and father watch helplessly.
There’s really no way to explain, rationalize or justify such monstrous and despicable behavior. The simple truth is that this an explicit example of the depravity of the heart of mankind and our utter disdain for human life. We should be very clear that any society which no longer values the life of unborn children will inevitably place itself on a trajectory for not valuing life at any stage. Whether it’s a kid with a birth defect or a grandfather with a disability, socialized medicine will eventually dictate that these people aren’t really “useful” or “productive” anymore. Better to rid them of their pains now and free up more space in society. Much of Europe has already immersed itself in this way of thinking. Mark my words: America won’t be far behind.
A hospital actually held a child hostage when he could have been receiving better medical care elsewhere and then, upon releasing him, is now actively barring his family from leaving the country to pursue that treatment on their own in a different country. Why? Because they’re evil and they do not value the worth and dignity of human life. They do not see life as the beautiful and wondrous gift that it was and is designed to be.
That is a travesty of monumental proportions and it is indicative of an ideology that is already slowly seeping into the fabric of our nation. Pray that God will purge it from us before it’s too late.
And then, pray for Alfie and for his family. May God give them a peace that surpasses all understanding and comprehension.
