THE NEW BARBARISM: DOCTOR ADMINISTERS MASSIVE DOSES OF PARALYZING DRUG TO PREMATURE BABIES


More deadly doctors in the news--this time a doctor in the U.K. administered massive doses of a paralyzing drug to two premature babies to hasten their death.

Michael Munro, a consultant neonatologist, gave 23 times the normal dose of pancuronium, a muscle relaxant, to the children moments before their deaths, contrary to medical guidelines in an act "tantamount to euthanasia", the GMC was told.

The doctor failed to record his actions in the medical notes of either child.

Dr Munro told Baby X's parents he could give the child a drug but "it was on the verge of what society finds acceptable", the hearing was told.

He then injected the child with 2,000 milligrams of the drug which, he admits, hastened the death of Baby X.

So many will scoff at the fact that this Doctor is facing any ramifications, whatsoever, for his actions--but these are the defining moments of a civilization. Historically when one made the decision to terminate innocent human life this was condemned as murder. The audacity of modern man however knows no bounds since he now calls murder -- "mercy".

"Our generation has been forced to realize how fragile and unsubstantial are the barriers that separate civilization from the forces of destruction. We have learnt that barbarism is not a picturesque myth or a half forgotten memory of a long-passed stage of history, but an ugly underlying reality which my erupt with shattering force whenever the moral authority of a civilization loses its control." C. Dawson, Religion and the Rise of Western Culture (1948)

"That Civilization that conflicts with the doctrines of the Holy Church is but a worthless imitation and a hollow name." Pope Leo XIII (1878)
