Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading pro-life organization is concerned that the Senate could adopt amendments to a SCHIP reauthorization bill that could prevent older Americans from protecting themselves from health care rationing. The group says that such rationing can easily lead to the withdrawal of lifesaving medical treatment and euthanasia.
Tallahassee, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Florida pro-life advocates are condemning a recent Florida court case which saw a couple receive $23.5 million for the so-called "wrongful birth" of their child. Daniel and Amara Estrada received the award after a court found their physician should have warned them their baby could have physical disabilities.
The Estradas had given birth to their first child, Aiden, who was born with Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome.
Children afflicted with the condition have small heads, webbed toes, are unable to communicate and require feeding tubes to receive food and water.
The SCHIP bill takes funds away from disabled and seniors and moves it to the children. The SCHIP bill should be called the useless eater elimination plan. UEEP.
