  • The Truth About The Hospital In The Charlie Gard Case

A London high court judge will hear their request today, just one day after Connie Yates and Chris Gard made a decision to end their legal battle to get their son experimental treatment, Reuters reports.

Yesterday, Chris Gard and Connie Yates gave up their fight to take Charlie to the USA to be treated by Dr. Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Center in NY.

London's Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), which is caring for Charlie Gard, accused Hirano of bringing false hope to the baby's parents.

A lawyer for the couple told the High Court that London's Great Ormond Street Hospital had put "obstacles" in the way of the 11-month-old child, widely known as Baby Charlie, being taken home, Sky News and other media reported.

Barrister Grant Armstrong, who represents the couple, suggested to Mr Justice Francis that hospital bosses were placing obstacles in Charlie's parents' way.

He can not survive without the support of a respirator, and his United Kingdom doctors have said that experimental treatments would only increase his suffering.

Westworld Season 2: First Trailer shows robots' retaliation!
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacas casually dropped the titles of the new eps on Twitter last month, and they sound creepy as HELL. Joining the cast for season 2 are Dacre Montgomery as Billy, Sadie Sink as Max and Paul Reiser as Dr.

US President Donald Trump and Pope Francis are among many people who have weighed in with views.

British courts and the European Court of Human Rights have all sided with Great Ormand Street, one of the world's leading children's hospital, in its bid to remove life support and let Charlie die naturally.

The baby has a rare genetic condition and will die once his life support is removed. After Tuesday's hearing, the High Court would decide whether Charlie would be sent home with his parents. He has remained at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London ever since.

Charlie - who suffers from a rare genetic condition causing progressive muscle weakness and brain damage - would turn a year old on August 4, but his parents believe he "unfortunately won't make his first birthday".

The fight to save Charlie Gard, the British infant at the center of a worldwide debate about parental rights and medical treatment, is coming to a close.

Mr Armstrong said the experimental treatment no longer offers any chance of improving Charlie's condition.

Yates added: "We promised Charlie every day we would take him home".

"Emotions are as high in this case as they could be in any", said the presiding judge, Nicholas Francis.

A previously scheduled hearing on Monday was said to review "fresh evidence" from the Yates family in a series of long court battles and public attention over the court case.

Chris Gard and Connie Yates on Monday gave up their legal battle to prolong his life, saying Charlie's condition had deteriorated too far for any possible recovery.

US - based professional life activists traveled to London to help Charlie's folks, and the case turned into a flashpoint for contradicting sees on human services subsidizing, medicinal intercession, the part of the state and the privileges of the youngster.
