Parents Of 10-Months-Old Baby Charlie Gard Sentenced To Death To Decide How He Dies


Parents of a 10 months old baby sentenced to death by a European
Human Rights Court have decided on how their baby, Charlie Gard, will die.
The parents of the terminally ill British baby Charlie Gard will hold
discussions with his London hospital about how he should be allowed to
die, their lawyer, Grant Armstrong, said on Monday.

Armstrong, speaking in London’s High Court, said the parents had dropped
their legal fight for Charlie to continue to receive treatment because scans
showed that the child suffered irreversible damage.

“For Charlie, it’s too late, time has run out, ” Reuters reported.
“Irreversible muscular damage has been done and the treatment can no
longer be a success.

“Charlie has waited patiently for treatment, due to delay, that window of
opportunity has been lost,” he said.

Citizens have taken to the social media on the issue.
Janice tweeted that Sadly #CharlieGard Parents have been hateful towards
staff at GOSH. Others have jumped on bandwagon. Other parents at GOSH
are not happy.

Conor Sullivan said that Charlie Gard wouldn’t even be alive for his parents
to complain about his treatment if not for GOST hospital doctors & nurses.

Liz Wheeler in her tweet said that Charlie Gard’s parents say “too late” to
try therapy to save him.
“If UK government hadnt stood in the way, Charlie might live. Tragic,” she

“Charlie Gard’s parents have issued a statement saying “it is no longer in
Charlie’s best interests to pursue this course of treatment,” Sky news said.
Charlie, whose first birthday is August 4, was born with a genetic
mutation called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome. It leads to
weakened muscles and organ dysfunction, among other symptoms. The
prognosis is poor for most patients. Charlie is unable to breathe or move on
his own.

Great Ormond Street Hospital — where Charlie has been since October 2016
— received permission from the European Court of Human Rights in June to
discontinue life support.
But his parents wanted to bring him to the US for an experimental therapy
called nucleoside bypass therapy. It has never been used to treat Charlie’s
form of mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome.

The doctors at GOSH have argued that every medical option has already
been considered and treatment in another country would not be in Charlie’s
best interest.
