"TRUST" SEEMS A MISNOMER:

Judge to rule in sick baby case: The parents of Charlotte Wyatt are returning to the high court today to fight for their seriously ill premature baby's right to be
resuscitated. (The Guardian, January 28, 2005)

Darren and Debbie Wyatt say that Charlotte has shown signs of improvement since the order was issued and that she should undergo further treatment. Doctors expected Charlotte to die from a respiratory infection this winter.

The Wyatts have been in conflict with Charlotte's doctors over her treatment since late last year. Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust was forced to seek a court ruling after her parents contested its plans for Charlotte's treatment.

The couple also contested the trust's claim at the court hearing that Charlotte felt nothing but pain.


In a medical system where the presumption is that you should be killed do they take an anti-Hippocratic oath?

Wouldn't that be the Hippocritical Oath?
