Charlotte Wyatt, potential victim to the culture of death

In all the clamour about the debate, a very sad story is taking place in England. No doubt stories like this abound, and don't make the press at all, especially if it doesn't go to court. Charlotte Wyatt is a desperately ill 11-month-old baby in a court battle between her parents and doctors. The court is considering denying her the right to be put on a ventillator if she has another crisis that calls for it. To me, she is a pawn in a culture that considers some people's life as worth less than others, similar to the case of Terry Schiavo, a culture that seems to think that death is preferrable to life, and that "damaged goods" people just aren't wanted, and ought to be gotten rid of.

Slobokan's Site O'Schtuff carries a good story about her.
