This beautiful little girl’s parents are suing:
A Quebec couple is launching a lawsuit against Montreal Children’s Hospital after their severely-ill newborn daughter was put back on life support without their consent….They said they agreed to withdraw respiratory support and later, at the suggestion of doctors, to withdraw the artificial feeding.
Point one: babies don’t feed themselves. “Withdrawing artificial feeding” amounts to starving a baby to death.
Now, 15 months later, Laurendeau has been forced to quit her job to take care of Phebe full time. Phebe is neither deaf nor blind. But she cannot hold up her head, sit up, or babble as another baby her age would, and she is fed through a hole in her stomach. She does smile at her parents, though, a recent breakthrough they are thrilled with, CTV’s Genevieve Beauchemin reported.
Let’s sum this case up. These parents are suing because their baby is not dead. That thrill from her smile? Apparently, only if the price is right.by
