Charlie Gard Type Death Panels Will Plague Rhode Island Parents if Government-Controlled Health Care Bill Passes

Stop Charlie Gard type DEATH PANELS!

Sign our petition against government-controlled health care in Rhode Island! 

Charlie6.pngChris Gard and Connie Yates were blessed with a healthy baby, Charlie, on August 4, 2016. Eight weeks later, he was rushed to a London hospital. Charlie was diagnosed with a rare and life-threatening condition known as mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome.

Devastated, Chris and Connie looked for a solution to save their child’s life. There was a potential miracle treatment available, here, in the United States.

But, despite their efforts and world outcry, the government-controlled British health care system denied potentially life-saving treatment for little Charlie.

Government-controlled health care will lead to Charlie Gard type nightmares for Rhode Island parents.

In 2017, Rep. Aaron Regunberg and other progressive-left politicians have already sponsored legislation (H5069) that seeks to establish a radical, single-payer health care system here in the Ocean State - a system that does not care about parental rights, the protection of life, or our religious rights.

Charlie Gard’s right to life and his parents’ rights were trampled. Rhode Island families must not suffer from this same insensitivity!

“Mummy and Daddy love you so much Charlie, we always have and we always will and we are so sorry that we couldn't save you.” - Connie Yates, Charlie’s mother.

Sign the petition now if you oppose government-controlled health care … and if you choose to make your family’s own life-saving medical decisions.

    A disgusting process brought about by the dictates of a single payer system and Socialist Government. Just the sort of thing that Democrats & Obama Care have set us up for.

    This was not a case of crackpot parents who did not want their child to get a lifesaving transfusion but rather a situation where parents were fighting government to take their child (not at government expense) to another country for the possibility for lifesaving treatment. Regardless of the probability for success the British government had no business stopping those who would try to save an innocent life.

    State sponsored health care hurts the very people it proposes it helps…the poor. Should the state decide your health & welfare? I think not!

    government and insurance companies should not be allowed to practice medicine without a license which is exactly what they are doing. If life is sacred, then government should no more interfere with health care than with religion.
