Nigel Farage appeared on the Ingraham Angle tonight to discuss the utterly heartbreaking story of the young Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old boy who is being kept at the Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool, England, against the wishes of his parents who want to take him to Italy for treatment.
“If a society is best judged by the quality of it’s mercy, then Britain’s socialized medical system appears to be failing that test”
Farage sums up the whole situation as follows:
This case gets to the absolute heart of how much freedom does the individual have, how much decision making process do the parents have, or are our children now owned by the state.
And it is just, it’s classic of the establishment, closing ranks, the state being all powerful, and frankly, what is happening today, what is happening right now, is a form of state sponsored euthanasia, and I hate it.
