England, oh my England

Continuing the theme, this is just stone scary. A court in the UK has argued that doctors can allow profoundly ill little Charlotte Wyatt (pictured here) to die. The court is not deferring to the wishes of her parents. That would be bad enough, but they want her to live. It's the hospital that is fighting for the right to let her die on the grounds that her life is overly burdensome and should not be prolonged.

Here is the mercy of government health care. Here is the compassion of the brave new world.

Like most American Episcopalians, I am a bit of an anglophile. Its rather hard today.
