Judge rules against Charlie Gard's parents ... again

Judge rules against Charlie Gard's parents ... again”

Francis hopes the Thursday deadline will push the sick child's parents and the hospital to reach an agreement on what should happen after the baby is moved to hospice.

Connie Yates and Chris Gard fought a long battle against the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, drawing global attention, to bring their son to the US for experimental treatment.

But they ran into opposition from Great Ormond Street hospital in London, where Charlie is on life support, which said that because of the difficulties of providing invasive ventilation at home and the potential for problems, that would not be possible.

Yesterday Mr Justice Francis, the High Court judge asked to decide his fate, said a deal must be agreed by midday today or GOSH's advice would be followed. The hospital had suggested a hospice option.

Charlie's mother, Connie Yates, became distressed as the judge made his decision.

The government, Ms Swaraj said, has been in touch with countries of the region, including Turkey, which can help India in the case.

Such arrangements will be hard to make, meaning the 11-month-old who has captured the world's attention will likely have his life support removed at a hospice. "May I pay tribute to those nurses for volunteering", he said.

CNN reports that an attorney for Charlie's parents said they objected to the "brutality" of moving Charlie to hospice, only to have him die shortly after.

The child suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a rare genetic disease, and can not breathe without help.

Doctors at Great Ormond Street said the therapy would not help and that life-support treatment should stop.

The hospital said that experimental therapy "could have been an opportunity for Charlie and it will be an opportunity for all the patients with the same or a similar rare disease". They have expressed the desire that he be moved home "for a few days of tranquility" before life support is withdrawn on July 31, four days before Charlie's first birthday.

Take US, China help in Kashmir, says senior Abdullah
BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao asked the former Chief Minister to stop advancing Pakistan's fake nuclear blackmail. Claiming that dialogue was the only solution for Kashmir, Abdullah had said, "The way out is through dialogue".

British courts and the European Court of Human Rights sided with the hospital in a string of hearings since March.

The hospital disagrees. It says Charlie had suffered irreversible brain damage by January as a result of a series of seizures, and his responsiveness has not changed since then.

"These are issues which cry out for settlement", Judge Nicholas Francis said. His parents just on Monday announced they were giving up their legal fight against the hospital and their own government to obtain treatment.

"We have decided it's no longer in Charlie's interest to have treatment". "Unfortunately, a MRI scan of Charlie's muscle tissue conducted in the past week has revealed that it is very unlikely that he would benefit from this treatment".
