"Baby Joseph is a frightening example of how vulnerable patients suffer when the dignity of their life is not respected," said Bobby Schindler, spokesperson for the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network. "We urge as many people as possible to join us this weekend to support this family in their effort to simply bring their child home to die naturally."
It looks like their efforts were successful.... FoxNews broke the story:
The baby who was hours from being pulled off life support at his Canadian hospital has been rescued by the national director of Priests For Life.
Joseph Maraachli, 13 months old, who is currently kept alive by a respirator and was recently denied a transfer to a Michigan hospital to undergo a tracheotomy, is en route tonight to the U.S. with Fr. Frank Pavone, the director.
Maraachli will be taken to a hospital that specializes in caring for children.
Update from Twitter:
I am with Baby Joseph right now in the USA in ambulance en route to hospital... He is doing GREAT! - @frfrankpavone
