Our politicians have dragged us down to the moral depths. They should be ashamed. David Isaacs

I am a children’s doctor. Doctors are often told to stick to health matters and let others deal with politics. But I also studied ethics. Ethics is how we ought to behave. When bad political ethics lead to bad health, I feel morally obligated to say something about the politics. I know of no moral code which deems it ethical to deprive one group of people of their liberty and punish them brutally merely to deter others from seeking refuge. Both sides of politics have lost their moral compass.
