Ross Douthat, opinion columnist with The New York Times, posted the parents' statement on his Twitter page and added that the whole incident was inexcusable.

"There was absolutely no good reason to overrule this couple's basic parental rights," tweeted Douthat, whose post has gotten as of Monday afternoon more than 330 retweets and over 570 likes.

He also posted a link to a column he wrote that was published last week in which he stated that "the Gards should be allowed to try one last time to heal their baby son."
