Sick Baby Sentenced To Death By European Human Rights Court As Parents Battle To Save Him

Charlie Gard To Be Taken Off Life Support On Friday The 30th of June 2017 After Final European Human Rights Court Ruling

A legal battle between baby Charlie Gard and the European Human Rights has come to a sad end when the court ruled that doctors should take him off life support.

The baby battling Mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, an incurable genetic illness was placed on life support while doctors were exploring treatment options.

Despite pleas from Charles parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard to use a life-saving drug from the US on their son, a court ruling on Tuesday the 27th of June stated that the application by the parents was inadmissible in the European Human Rights Court.

The court claimed that the baby is being subjected to stress and therefore ruled that doctors should take the 10 month old baby off life support.

The EHRC also removed the interim measure to keep Charlie’s life support in place.

Doctors refused to let Charlie Gard’s parents take him home as his life support will be switched off tomorrow.

See his parents crying as they left the court on Tuesday after the final ruling.

Charlie’s parents plan to donate the £1.3 million raised through Go Fund Me to other children battling the incurable genetic disorder.

  1. Is this baby’s right to live not human right? And what of the additional anguish the parents have to face in the few hours before the child ‘s life support is disconnected_ knowing that the decision is final and that they cannot take their cherished baby home even for the few remaining hours? Is the right to love your baby not human rights? Please somebody tell me which human right is greater than the human right to love?
    It is indeed heartbreaking.

  2. The baby has a right to live independently, not permanently on life-support machines. The doctors made a decision based the totality of the medical diagnosis and long-term prognosis of the baby’s condition. Their call is to save lives and would have preferred for the baby to live. He most certainly would never live a normal life. We don’t have all the facts. Emotions cannot be the primary determination in these things. The parents would ultimately break up or get tired of caring for him, with time. We are all human. May God give his parents peace and another healthy baby.
