Matt Walsh joined “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” on Thursday to talk about the story of Charlie Gard, a 10-month-old baby with a rare genetic condition that doctors say is terminal. His parents want to bring him to the U.S. for experimental treatment in a last-ditch effort to fight for his survival, but European courts have ruled that he can’t leave the hospital – even to go home for his last hours of life.
For the U.K., the case is similar to the Terri Schiavo case in the U.S. “in terms of the intensity of coverage,” Walsh said. Schiavo was a woman who suffered a cardiac arrest in 1990 and afterward lived in a vegetative state; her husband battled her family in court, saying she should be allowed to die. After an extended battle that became national news, a Florida judge ordered in 2005 that her feeding tube be removed.
People who say they are killing someone out of love can find any reason to justify their actions, Walsh asserted. If you don’t recognize that life has inherent value, you can say there’s no reason for people to live if they’re disabled, injured, poor or otherwise struggling.
“Once you’ve put yourself on that side of the argument … you have put yourself on the same side as all of the worst people in the history of the earth,” Walsh said. “All of the worst atrocities that have been committed have always been committed with that kind of thinking.”
