This isn’t getting any better:
LONDON, Ontario, February 22, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – While things were looking up for the parents of Joseph Maraachli this past weekend, the picture has now become bleaker. In the latest twist in the case the London hospital where their dying son is being cared for is seeking to remove the parents’ decision-making power after they refused to have him taken off life support. Hospital security is also denying them private visitations.
Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, which has been offering support to the parents, Moe Maraachli and Sana Nader, says they are now only allowed to see their son with a security guard present.
“They fight my family. … they put security for me. They never give me private to pray with my son,” Moe told Fox News this afternoon.
“Security watch me and security stay with me,” he added. “When I go to hospital I feel I am not in Canada. I feel I’m in jail or they kidnapped my baby.”
“It’s ridiculous. It’s not like they could pick the child up and take him home. The baby would die,” said Schadenberg.
Schadenberg said that Moe tried to bring him in to see Joseph on Monday, but security denied him access to the room, and told him to leave the premises. “It’s become crazy. The hospital’s going overboard and it makes no sense,” he said.
The longer it goes on, the more it resembles a Kafkaesque nightmare created by unfeeling hospital apparatchiks.
