    • Baby Joseph’s story began in February of this year when the  Ontario Superior Court rejected an appeal by his parents to bring him home where  he could die under their care. He had been previously diagnosed with severe  neurological issues, for which doctors said there was no hope of recovery.


      The family contested claims that their son was in a “permanent  vegetative state,” offering footage showing him flailing and reacting to  tickling. Their request was that their son be given a simple tracheostomy, which  would enable him to breathe on his own, and be sent home where he could die.


      After the decision of the Ontario court, doctors immediately  scheduled the removal of Baby Joseph’s life support, meaning almost certain  death for the young child.


      “Monday at 10 am. they will kill my baby,” Moe Maraachli had  told LifeSiteNews shortly after the ruling.  “There’s no more  humanity.  There’s no more chance.  I’ve tried everything for  him.  No more appeals, nothing.”


      However, anti-euthanasia and pro-life advocates rallied around  the Maraachli family, and effected a dramatic 11th-hour rescue.


      Schadenberg and his organization were able to secure  professional legal help, with the result that the removal of Baby Joseph’s life  support was postponed at the last minute.
