The 14 month old baby's father Moe Maraachli, released the following statement: “Good morning all friends and family and supporters. Me and my wife we thank you so much for everything and for your praying to our baby Joseph ….today is big day for Joseph.”
Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, who was in Arizona over the weekend, had this to say.
We at Priests For Life are very grateful to you for being among the tens of thousands of pro-lifers who sent e-mails to the doctors and administrators at the Canadian hospital where Baby Joseph would have been forced to die.
This victory just goes to show that when enough good people get involved and work together, miracles happen.
We’re also extremely grateful that the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital—out of dozens of hospitals we contacted—had the intestinal fortitude to stand up to all the political pressure and say, “YES! We’ll take Baby Joseph and care for him! That’s what we do!”
Let us all continue to pray for this family and for those who helped make this all possible.
