    2011 Victories: Right to Life of Sick Baby Protected

Joseph Maraachli is now at the SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri. He was airlifted Sunday night from Canada to Missouri where he is now getting the medical treatment and care his parents wanted. We worked with a team to make this happen - including Priests for Life. We're extremely pleased that this hospital - a leader in healthcare for children - has stepped forward to care for 'Baby Joseph' at such a critical time. In representing the family's interests in the U.S., we were able to assist in a number of vital areas - including assisting in the facilit... Continue Reading
