A High Court judge has approved a plan for Charlie Gard to be moved to hospice care, according to news reports.
It was agreed that Charlie – a terminally ill 11-month-old boy who has become the face of a worldwide debate over end-of-life rights – would die in hospice. But his parents and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) had not agreed on how much time the child should have to live, according to BBC News.
The judge gave them until noon Thursday (local time) to come up with a plan, or he said Charlie would be moved to hospice, and life support would soon after be terminated. By the afternoon, the judge had approved the plan, but no further details were immediately known.
The hospital in London did not immediately have a comment, and the family’s attorney could not immediately be reached.
