Charlie Gard: Boris Johnson says terminallyill baby can't be moved to Vatican

  • Art's son suffers from a similar condition to Charlie's

The European Court was asked to determine if the British Court was correct in allowing the hospital the right to remove life sustaining support from Charlie based on the premise that the child is now in pain and any further treatment would likely bring more suffering without any realistic prospect of improving the boy's condition.

Charlie's parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard from Bedfont, west London, have spent the last days of their son's life with him, after being given more time before his life-support is turned off. The offer came as an effort to prevent doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London from turning off the baby's life support and to allow his parents to be the ones making the decision on whether to do so or not.

The case of Charlie Gard has also captured the attention of US President Trump, who on Monday offered US support for the baby.

Citing legal issues, the White House declined to say whether a USA hospital or doctor had become involved in the discussions to provide care for the child. Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice, also wrote: "There is another round of appeals available for #CharlieGard before the European Court of Human Rights".

The case has tugged at heartstrings in Britain, where more than £1.3 million (S$2.3 million) has been raised through crowdfunding platform GoFundMe to pay for the experimental treatment. Enoc said Yates "appears set to stop at nothing" after a British court ordered her son's treatment to be stopped.

Enoc said London's Great Ormond Street Hospital would agree to a transfer if the Bambino Gesù agreed to implement a British supreme court ruling that Charlie should be taken off life support, but the Rome hospital was unwilling to do this. In other words, the hospital is legally justified in removing the child from life support so that he is no longer suffering.

But three courts, including the Supreme Court of England, have made a decision to detach Charlie from the vital life support, to give him "a dignified death", "in his own interest". Social media users have slammed the court's decision not to allow Charlie's parents to take him to the USA for further treatment.

Charlie has a rare genetic condition and brain damage. However, parental rights are not absolute, and in cases in which doctors and parents disagree, the courts may exercise objective judgment in a child's best interest.

The Pope spoke out on the issue Sunday after the head of his bioethics panel, Vincenzo Paglia, said that while the Catholic Church was against active euthanasia, it must accept that medicine had its limits and that "disproportionate" medical procedures should be avoided. "For this he prays that their wish to accompany and treat their child until the end is not neglected".
