This article highlights how Annie’s mom, Barbara Farlow, has been inspired by her daughter’s death at three months, three years ago, to find out what happened, and warn and help others. She’s concerned Annie did not get the care she needed:
Annie had a chromosome disorder that would have affected her development. Her family, including two brothers and two sisters, knew all about it long before she was born.
They knew she might not live into her teens, talked about the inevitable challenges and sacrifices and welcomed her into their lives. …
Among other things, the family questions what drugs were used and how a “Do not resuscitate” order was issued without their informed consent.
That’s an astounding oversight. How does a DNR get issued without the family knowing? I hope Barbara gets the answers she deserves on this. We can’t pretend this has nothing to do with abortion, either. Many babies with problems like Annie’s are aborted first thing. It can’t help but seep into the psyche that these kids won’t have a high “quality of life” and that they would be “better off dead.”
