Fr. Frank Issues Urgent Appeal to U.S. Hospitals on behalf of Baby Joseph: Help!


Priests for Life





STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, has issued the following urgent appeal on behalf of Baby Joseph Maraachli:


“Priests for Life and other pro-life and pro-family organizations have been negotiating with hospitals across the United States for more than a week to have them agree to admit Baby Joseph.


“For the most part, they have shown compassion but unfortunately, so far, not one has agreed to take Baby Joseph. The family is asking only to have a simple procedure performed to allow their son to breathe on his own.


“A committee in Canada has declared that efforts on behalf of this boy are futile. The parents are simply asking for a second opinion from an American institution.


“Priests for Life has hired a jet that is standing by now to fly Baby Joseph and his parents anywhere in the U.S. at a moment’s notice. We need one hospital with a sophisticated neo-natal unit and the courage to actually agree to take this child. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to explain to the public why it is that not one has committed to do this yet. I am urgently calling on any U.S. hospitals or administrators who are willing to help to contact my team at the following email address:


“Life is in the balance. It’s time for the American spirit to rise to this occasion and say Let’s roll!
