Baby Sentenced To Death By Judge


Judges at the European Court of Human Rights have rejected a plea from the parents of terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard to intervene in his case.

Chris Gard and Connie Yates lost their final legal bid to take their son to the US for treatment.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital believe Charlie has no chance of survival.

The court agreed, concluding that further treatment would continue to cause Charlie significant harm.

Charlie is thought to be one of 16 children in the world to have mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a condition which causes progressive muscle weakness and brain damage.

His parents had previously seen a Supreme Court challenge to continue Charlie’s life support fail.

European Court judges have now concluded it was most likely Charlie was  exposed to continued pain, suffering and distress and undergoing experimental treatment with no prospects of success would offer no benefit.

The court also considered that it was appropriate to lift the interim measure which had required doctors to continue providing life support treatment to Charlie.
