Important Email Message Concerning Charlotte Wyatt

Topics: Action Items, International, News

(Just noticed, sorry about the delay in posting.)

- From Julie
I received an email this morning from Hannah, with an updated request regarding Baby Charlotte! Could you possibly post this on the Blogs for Terri site?

"Darren & Debbie are asking if it would be at all possible to bring in a pro-life doctor from elsewhere, with some knowledge in this field, to do an independent assessment on Charlotte. Would you know of any leads, or how we might go about this? They feel strongly that the NHS is not working for her best interest, and just now it seems as if maybe an American doctor might be able to make a less politicized assesment than a British doctor.

-Hannah"

Juleni you can't remember EVERY THING.

RottyPup, Always, Lydia,

Apropos of our conversation last night, I still think we should make Charlotte a hot potato only on an international scale. Obviously (to me, anyway) a critical light needs to be shone on the medical nightmare in England. That's the worst good old boys club I've ever heard of.

Juleni,
I've sent you email with a couple of addresses.

Agreed Mary-you know what scares me even more-this is the same kind of system that some would like to see here. That would fit the bill just perfectly. An American National Health Care System-paid for by our taxes, where the government (all branches included of course) really would have all the say in what happens with the money-and what does not happen with it. You think it is hard to get the courts to keep people alive now-imagine what it would be if they had the extra ammunition of tax payer money. Frightening.
The good news....Charlotte is alive-she is going to get the help she needs.

I just sent out a bunch of email-one that might have some results is the Baptist Health System. They have a bunch of their own hospitals and many of the doctors I am looking for email addresses for from my list of pro-life doctors are doctors at those hospitals.
If anyone is interesed here is their mission statement and email-it will probably take more than just me to get them to help

Mary, I certainly agree with you that exposing the iniquities of the British NHS is a good thing. And so is keeping light shining on Charlotte. I don't think it will remove her DNR order, but it can't hurt, and it is always good for people to know the truth in any event.

The British system is indeed in very bad shape, and we should oh-so-strongly resist anything of the kind here. The funny thing is that conservatives are called un-compassionate for opposing socialized medicine, but the "compassion" of socialized medicine is often murderous, and that is becoming more and more obvious.

Do any of you know about this one? A few years ago a couple from the Island of Malta discovered they were expecting Siamese twins. Hoping for the help of the "superior" medical care in Britain, they flew there before the babies were born. They were born with only one pair of lungs and heart between the two of them, housed in the body of one of the little girls. To separate them would mean, in essence, cutting the torso of the child without heart and lungs off from the only heart and lungs she had and thus inevitably killing her. The doctors decided, however, that this was not only ethically _allowable_ but _imperative_. The parents did not want to do it. They were willing for one or both of the girls to die naturally but viewed the separation surgery as actively killing the one child. The doctors went to court. Eventually, the highest British courts ruled that the doctors must be allowed to perform the surgery against the parents' wishes. The children were separated, and the body of the dead little girl was put into her mother's arms. Then they went home to Malta with the living child.

It was at that point that I decided I don't really want to visit England after all.

Lydia,

England was the one country I always wanted to visit. Like you, no more. I feel sorry for every one that lives there. And I count it a gift of God that we aren't in the same boat, for we have certainly had plenty of powerful people pushing this. It is indeed murderous.

Always,

You give me good news, I think. Is there more news about our baby? I truly hope and pray so. Great find on the Baptist hospitals. Have e-mail, will write. Keep those addresses coming, please, and thank you so very much.

Posted by: mary et. al. at April 26, 2005 3:45 PM

Alwayschooselife, thank you so much for the contact for the Baptist hospital! I will contact them, also, and forward their info to Hannah.

Abigail, also want to openly thank you so much! Have forwarded your information to Hannah, as well, and will also contact, myself.

Everyone, please please really pray tonight for a contact which may be quite feasible, but we are waiting to hear back from Charlotte's parents about it, through Hannah. Part of what needs prayer is for discernment as to if the doctor would need to go to England, or if Charlotte would have to be brought to the US for the doctor's help. Please, please pray! God must make a way!

Posted by: juleni at April 26, 2005 6:06 PM

Will pray, Juleni, but after RottyPup explained the situation there, I don't see how Baby has any chance whatsoever in England. As I see it, it is another case of Terri in Pinellas County.
