Charlie Gard’s parents have until 12:00 p.m. tomorrow to set up their home to Great Ormond Street Hospital’s (GOSH) liking, or their son will be transferred to a hospice and have his life support pulled there.
Such arrangements will be difficult to make, meaning the 11-month-old who has captured the world’s attention will likely have his life support removed at a hospice.
For months, the hospital argued in court that its staff rather than Charlie’s parents be allowed to decide his fate. After Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, eventually ended their legal battle to save their son’s life because the hospital didn’t treat him soon enough, the hospital refused to allow them to take Charlie home to die.
Yesterday and today, Chris and Connie were in court trying to arrange for their 11-month-old son to be transferred from the hospital to their home, and allowed to spend his last moments there.
The BBC reported that Chris and Connie have “accepted their son has to be moved to a hospice” and some British media suggested they gave up trying to bring him home. (Read more from “Charlie Gard Will Likely Be Forced Into Hospice Tomorrow to Die, Not Allowed to Go Home” HERE)
