Exclusive – Sarah Palin: ‘Diabolical’ Treatment of Alfie Evans Shows Our Future if We Ignore ‘Death Panels’ Warning

You thought the “Death Panels” comment was funny and stupid when Palin said it.

Death panels are now a fact of life in Londonstan.


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin warned that the “diabolical” and “heartbreaking” treatment of the 23-month-old British baby Alfie Evans is an example of the “death panel”-like decisions Americans can expect under a fully “socialized rationed healthcare” system.

In a Thursday interview on Breitbart News Tonight with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak, Palin cautioned that “this type of rationed healthcare controlled by government bureaucrats and politicians” is “the road we’re on” if the United States continues down the path towards a totally government-controlled socialized healthcare system.

Alfie Evans is a critically ill toddler who was recently removed from life support against the wishes of his parents by order of the British government, following a United Kingdom High Court decision on April 11. British authorities also denied the parents’ request to transfer their child to a Vatican-owned children’s hospital for treatment at the invitation of Pope Francis and Vatican officials who offered to cover the child’s healthcare and travel expenses.

Palin said, “The hospital and quote-unquote ‘health care providers’ won’t listen to the parents of Alfie, and of course the parents want to take all these offers from others to help their special needs child who will die under the care of this hospital that is adhering to the socialized rationed health care rules.”…

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) described the case of Alfie Evans as “a grim reminder that systems of socialized medicine like the National Health Service (NHS) vest the state with power over human lives, transforming citizens into subjects.”

Italian Bishop Francesco Cavina described the British authorities’ denial of Alfie Evans’ parents’ request to accept the Vatican’s invitation to care for their baby as “outside all human logic.”

The director of the Vatican-owned Bambino Gesù children’s hospital said UK authorities are carrying on an “ideological battle” in their refusal to let Alfie Evans be treated elsewhere, adding that the decision betrays “hostility toward the Vatican hospital.”
