God bless these parents and this beautiful child. Already facing a fatal genetic condition, the child has struggled to live during his short life. The parents had hoped to bring the child to the US to try an experimental procedure in a last hope of saving the baby.
In a turn of events that explains the general hesitation about turning such matters over to the State, the UK courts have said the parents can’t do this. The hospital will remove the child from life support. The parents appealed and took the matter to the European court. But the court refused to overturn the lower court decision. The child will die.
I can’t imagine what those parents are feeling right now, and that precious child who knows nothing of this. God grant peace and strength to all involved in the coming weeks, and bless young Charlie Gard with all your love.
