Charlie Gard Will Be Moved To Hospice, Judge Rules

2

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.

  1. Since day one of this case of nearly a year ago, the severely wicked administration of the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London and the severely wicked High Court Judge Nicholas Francis have wanted to quickly murder Charlie Gard and have had total disregard for the wishes of Mr. Gard’s parents. The latest development of this case was that (as the hospital did not want him) the parents wanted to take their son back to their home with them (and have professional help care for him there), but even this most basic-understandable-obviously-not-going-to-hurt-anyone request was flatly rejected!
