Officials at Great Ormond Street Hospital in the United Kingdom, who have recommended that life support for 11-month-old Charlie Gard be withdrawn so that he dies, now have tried to exclude his parents from a meeting that could very well decide his future . . .
WND reported on Thursday that during the early part of a court hearing, Charlie Gard’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, stormed out because the judge claimed they had said they wanted to maintain their son’s condition as it was, something they denied saying.
But they returned a short time later and the judge eventually asked an American doctor, testifying via long-distance, whether he would be available and willing to come to the U.K. to begin treatments on Charlie . . .
It is Dr. Michio Hirano of Columbia University Medical Center in New York, an expert in the child’s condition, who has agreed to travel to the U.K. for an evaluation.
He then will meet with U.K. officials to discuss his prognosis. (Read more from “Good News for Baby Charlie” HERE)
