There is no time for a quote, for this we must dive right in…
Like Holly states in her post, http://www.notaperfectmomsblog.com/2012/01/help-amelia-spread-the-word/#comment-6625 I had not intended to post today, but when I saw this on Elastamom’s blog, I had to help spread the word and I immediately signed the petition.
It’s a real life, happening now, story of a little girl who is not being granted a life-saving kidney transplant because the doctors have decided that her quality of life isn’t worth using the kidney to preserve.
Who gets to decide that? Who makes that decision? What gives anyone the right to make the decision?
Normally, I do not incorporate my religious beliefs into my blog posts, but for this one, I feel the need to add, that God gave her this life for a reason, to this family for a reason and it is not anyone’s right to take that gift away.
Even as I type this, I sit at the borderline of anger and nausea…wanting to scream for this family.
To say her life isn’t worth it, to tell them she doesn’t bring her own light in her own way. To say that as someone’s daughter, sister, granddaughter, that she is not worth it…blows my mind.
So, please use your power of social media and help Amelia and her family and all the other little ones and their families like hers.
Read Holly’s post, sign the petition and spread the word. It may save Amelia’s life and knowing that, sharing that, can make so many more ‘favoritedays’ for everyone, especially her and her family.
