Boy Who Doctors Wanted Dead Now Receiving Rehab

by Wesley J. Smith

Over at Human Exceptionalism, I report on the continuing progress of a 12-year-old Texas boy whose parents had to fight doctors and hospital to maintain his care.  Contrary to their prognosis, he is improving dramatically and receiving rehab at a new hospital.  Had the doctors been able to force him off life support, he would likely be dead. ”Futile care,” it is called, but it is really death panel medicine.
