A Person's A Person No Matter How Small

Matthew Archbold at Creative Minority Report writes about the socialized health care system in England that recently denied care to a baby because it was born two days too early. Little Jayden Capewell was born at 22 weeks and 5 days gestation. Guidelines under England's health care legislation state that care not be given to children born prior to 23 weeks. According to the baby's mother, Jayden had a strong heartbeat, but doctor's ignored her cry for help and told her to "enjoy the time she had with her son." This is what happens when you turn health care over to bureaucrats. The doctors say they follow the national guidelines and would have treated the child if he was born two days later. As Matthew says, it sounds eerily similar to the "we were just following orders" defense.
