The Apocalypse

THE APOCALYPSE….I’m feeling left out of the Ben Domenech bashing, so let’s take a crack at his latest post, which he mildly calls “one of the ever-growing number of signs of the apocalypse”:

In brief: A group of British doctors fought in court for the right to remove a fully-conscious little boy from a ventilator, over the objections of his parents, because they judged his quality of life to not be worth living.

Damn socialists. It’s a good thing that a God fearing man like George Bush would never sign legislation allowing doctors to pull the plug over the objections of family members, isn’t it?

In any case, I’m glad to see Ben arguing that the state should be obligated to provide medical care for sufficiently sick people. It’s a start.
