LONDON, England, July 7, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The hospital fighting to take Charlie Gard off life support announced today that it’s asked the High Court to reconsider the case based on new evidence that needs to be considered.
“We have just met with Charlie’s parents to inform them of this decision and will continue to keep them fully appraised of the situation,” Great Ormond Street Hospital said in a statement Friday.
Chris Gard and Connie Yates, Charlie’s parents, have been fighting in European courts for their right to bring their 11-month-old to the U.S. for experimental treatment for his rare muscle and brain disease. They raised over $1 million to do this, but English courts sided with the hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, which wants to remove him from life support rather than allow him to be transferred to another hospital.
Then, the European Court of Human Rights also sided with the hospital. Charlie was scheduled to die on Friday, June 30, but his parents have been granted more time with him. The hospital has the legal right to turn off Charlie’s life support at any time now, and his parents aren’t allowed to take him out of the hospital.
International pro-life activists Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Bobby Schindler, and Catherine Glenn Foster were supposed to be in the meeting with Charlie’s parents and hospital officials, which was supposed to be at 5:00 p.m. London time. It was moved to an earlier time, the activists told LifeSiteNews in an exclusive interview.
