I’ve rewritten Tuesday’s post on the death of First Nations child Makayla Sault. a martyr to her parents’ faith and the political correctness of the Canadian government (as well as the cowardice of some Canadian doctors); and it’s been published by The New Republic.
The rewritten piece is called “A little girl died because Canada chose cultural sensitivity over Western medicine,” and you might have a look to see what’s up there (according to Stephen Fry’s Dictum, I don’t read the comments).
But looking at it to make sure that my essay came out okay, I did see the first comment: kudos to Alex Musso for posting this familiar graphic:
Oh, and the editor at TNR found a heartbreaking picture of Makayla to head the piece. What an adorable child! She’s dead now, and didn’t have to be.
