Socialized healthcare at work here, people. You all know Charlie’s story by now and it seems we are nearing this baby’s last few hours on this Earth with us.
His parents’ requests to have more time with him was rejected but the hospital finally agreed “to a give us a bit more time with Charlie.” though not disclosed is the amount of time. And here’s a video of his Parents’ saying that Charlie is still fighting and “stable”.
As written for The Daily Wire by AMANDA PRESTIGIACOMO:
Per Orwellian U.K. court rulings, ten-month-old baby Charlie Gard was set to have his life support removed on Friday, but due to a heartbreaking plea from the sick boy’s parents, they will now have more time, an undisclosed amount, to say goodbye to their child before his government-mandated death sentence.
“Charlie suffers from a mitochondrial disease that destroys the muscles and the brain,” explained Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, on Thursday. “There was no available treatment in the United Kingdom, and so Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, raised $1.6 million to fly him to the United States for an experimental treatment. But the hospital argued that the treatment wouldn’t help Charlie, and would prolong his suffering, and that they knew better than the parents who had to suffer through his illness and care for him every single day. Thus, the hospital argued that it would be in Charlie’s best interest to die.”
The European Court on Human Rights sided with the hospital and determined Charlie’s parents were barred from bringing their ill baby to the United States for such potentially life-saving treatment. Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children would instead kill Charlie by withdrawing all life support, the court ruled. Charlie has to “die with dignity.”
On Thursday, Gard and Yates “accused their son’s doctors of ‘rushing’ them and preventing all their family saying goodbye this weekend in a video message for their thousands of supporters,” notes The Daily Mail. Not only were the parents denied the right to continue to fight for their son’s life, but the hospital wouldn’t allow them to take the boy home to die, or even go to hospice, they said. He must die in the hospital, they were told.
