Parents ask court to let them take Charlie Gard home to die

The Truth About The Hospital In The Charlie Gard Case

Ms Yates returned to the High Court on Tuesday for a new hearing a day after abandoning legal action over treatment for the terminally-ill baby.

Charlie, who was born on August 4, 2016, has a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial depletion syndrome, which causes progressive muscle weakness and brain damage.

"We struggle with the difficulties the hospital has placed in the way of the parents' wish to have a period of time, probably a relatively short period of time. before the final act in Charlie's short life".

His parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, had wanted to keep him on life support and transport him to the United States in order to try an experimental treatment.

Charlie's case touched off a bioethical debate that has drawn the attention of Pope Francis and President Trump.

The court heard how GOSH "must honour his parent's wishes" about where and when Baby Gard ends his life, but that he breathes with a ventilator which has to stay in hospital.

James O'Brien thinks Charlie Gard's parents fought like any parent would - but the way some of the public have reacted has some worrying undertones.

She said providing intensive care to Charlie outside a hospital setting was not simple. They said life-support treatment should stop. But she said practicalities were of the "greatest importance" and that Charlie's parents had proposed no clear plan.

In the Royal Court of Justice in London, Connie stated, "Charlie was left to lie [in Great Ormond Street Hospital] and deteriorate".

Offers of help for Charlie came from Dr. Michio Hirano, a neurology expert at New York's Columbia Medical Center and from the Vatican's Babino Gesu pediatric hospital. But after several weeks, the European court sided with the British court system.

"Charlie is a child who requires highly specialised treatment".

The couple cried at London's High Court on Monday as their lawyer said time had run out for 11-month-old Charlie.

Their barrister said: "The parents" worst fears have been confirmed, it is now too late to treat Charlie'.

The Judge added that hospital bosses suggested a hospice for little Charlie.

"If the (experimental) treatment had been tried in time, there would have been some possibility of having an impact on this disease", Enrico Bertini told journalists.

"We return to the court for perhaps the most hard emotional part of this case - the circumstances in which Charlie's passing will be conducted".

Addressing the question arguably at the core of the Charlie Gard case, Francis J laid out the circumstances in which the parents' autonomy over their own child can and must sometimes be overridden by the state, in the form of its medical services, this intervention supervised by the courts.

Charlie's doctors are responding to the facts of his condition, not the demands of the NHS, as the court case amply demonstrated.
