Release Baby Joseph NOW

We have everything we need to bring Baby Joseph to the U.S. for the health care he needs.

We’ve done everything the Canadians have asked us to do — now it’s up to them to do their part and let Baby Joseph go.

No doubt you’ve been following the rollercoaster drama that has been unfolding in Canada regarding the fate of little Baby Joseph. Neither we nor anyone else knows how long he has to live, but that’s God’s decision. Meanwhile, we are joining his family in trying to get him reasonable care that will extend his life – care that has so far been denied by the hospital he is in.

Believe it or not, this last Friday we were prepared to pick up Baby Joseph from the Canadian hospital and transport him to a hospital in the U.S. that has agreed to take him in and give him the care he needs.

However, we have been stonewalled through all kinds of delay tactics — the list of which is so long it would take another page to describe them to you.

It was infuriating!

For instance, we have an air medical transport team — one of the top teams in the country — waiting on standby for the “go ahead” that has not yet come. In other words, Baby Joseph could be in that U.S. hospital right now receiving the care he needs. Instead he is still languishing in the Canadian hospital.

The medical board overseeing his case is apparently convinced that giving proper care to Baby Joseph is futile. They don’t mean that the medical care won’t help him. They mean his life in its current condition isn’t worth the trouble.

This of course is an outrage, and must be stopped.

We at Priests For Life have been at the forefront of this battle for the last several weeks, once we discovered how critical this situation was for Baby Joseph and his parents. We have already made a firm commitment to fight for Baby Joseph — whatever the cost. And let me tell you, the costs will be significant.

For example, the air medical team and their specially-equipped airplane costs thousands of dollars an hour. That’s because they’re capable of the highest level of critical care, and they can handle anything. Furthermore, once we get Baby Joseph to the U.S. hospital, we’ve been told that it could cost as much as $150,000 for his stay in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

So here’s what happens next …

Monday morning, there’s going to be a “conference call” between the lawyers, doctors, and administrators involved in this case to ensure that Baby Joseph can be released immediately. Once he is, our team springs into action.

What I need you to do right now is to contact by email a certain Dr. Douglas Fraser, who is the attending physician for Baby Joseph at the Canadian hospital. It is our understanding that he has the ultimate authority to permit the release of Baby Joseph or to deny it. In other words, the fate of Baby Joseph is in Dr. Fraser’s hands.

We all must urge Dr. Fraser to do the right thing and allow Baby Joseph to get the care he can receive in the U.S. hospital which we’ve already lined up and is ready to go.

Therefore, click here now to send your email to Dr. Fraser so that he sees it first thing Monday morning. Also, I implore you forward this Alert to everyone on your email list — because we need to get the word out in order to have maximum effectiveness.

I am personally “on call” right now to hop on an airplane and go to Canada when Baby Joseph is released so that I can be with him on the medical jet as it flies to the United States. I will be joining Baby Joseph’s parents in order to give them spiritual strength during this undoubtedly difficult time in their lives.

Please say a prayer for Baby Joseph, his parents, the air medical team, and everyone else involved in this historic case. Pray that the Canadian authorities do the right thing AND RELEASE BABY JOSEPH NOW!

Thank you for your time, your charity, and your love for the defenseless children among us — born and unborn.

Fr. Frank Pavone
National Director

P.S. The email that you’ll send to Dr. Fraser will also go to Mr. Peter Johnson, who is the Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Canadian hospital where Baby Joseph lies in wait for us to help him. Mr. Johnson oversees that particular hospital, and therefore he can have a strong influence on Dr. Fraser’s decision. Please see the email for more details.

    It is *you* that do not understand the issue here, Ronald. Once the Canadian government denied the tracheotomy the Maraachli family decided to take their child and care for him the best the saw fit at their own expense.

    In the end this became a simple issue of giving the family their child back and letting them deal with it. The baby did not become property of the Canadian health care system to do whatever they wanted with simply because he was in their hospital. By the time this ended last night the issue had changed from “Save Joseph” to “Free Joseph”. That was the issue.

    By the way, no taxpayer dollars, Canadian or US are involved, so your arguments about money are irrelevant here. You can spend your personal money as you see fit, but how others choose to spend their is, quite frankly, none of your business.

  • Ronald, that “vegative infant” is as worthy of our love and concern as any other needy child. If you feel you can do better then get involved in the prolife movement. You’re either a part of the solution or a part of the problem.

    You guys don’t understand… So many healthy children out there without food, malnourished, persecuted and your organisation is going to spend thousands of hours and thousands of dollars on ‘saving’ a braindamaged vegetative infant! What is the world coming to, wake up!
