    Doesn't mean the High Court will change it's ruling, but it's hard to justify denial of treatment that the state isn't paying for.


    Great Ormond Street Hospital says "claims of new evidence" in the treatment of terminally ill baby Charlie Gard have prompted it to seek a new hearing at the High Court.

    In a statement, the hospital said: "We have just met with Charlie's parents to inform them of this decision and will continue to keep them fully appraised of the situation.

    "Two international hospitals and their researchers have communicated to us as late as the last 24 hours that they have fresh evidence about their proposed experimental treatment.

    There's new hope for Charlie Gard, the critically ill British baby championed by President Donald Trump. The 11-month-old has now been welcomed at a leading New York City hospital, where he’ll be treated with an experimental drug for his rare genetic disease. Read More Here

    "...fresh evidence about their proposed experimental treatment."

    Fresh evidence? Really, they're going with "fresh evidence"? What fresh evidence? That IT WORKS!?

    Talk about a classic CYA. Looks like Mrs. May called and said, "You better make sure the egg isn't on MY face. Fix this. NOW!"
    Fresh evidence my ass. More like, "Quick, we've been exposed!! Damage control, damage control. Spin, spin"

    At least Charlie has a fighting chance now, thanks in no small part to his parents who would not accept a death sentence for their child. Come hell or high water, they would not go "quietly into that good night." Thank God they stood up and said, "not on MY watch."

    Judge Rules Against London Hospital--In Favor of Charlie Gard's Parents
    July 10, 2017 | A judge at London's High Court ruled against the hospital and in favor of the parents of baby Charlie Gard--who is suffering from a rare genetic disorder--that they may present new scientific evidence concerning their son's treatment, which will be reviewed this Thursday and could possibly lead to Charlie receiving treatment in the United States. But the outcome is still uncertain and Charlie's fate is precarious.

    We'll see about that, but at least there is HOPE.

    'All We Want is to Take Our Baby for Treatment in U.S.A.'...

    Parents of Baby Held by UK Hospital: All We Want is to Take Our Baby for Treatment in U.S.A.
    July 13, 2017 -- The parents of baby Charlie Gard, who suffers from a rare genetic disorder, said they have never asked the courts, the hospital, or anyone for anything and that all they want is "permisison to go" and allow their son to be treated by specialized doctors in the United States or Italy. But the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where little Charlie is on a ventilator, will not allow his parents to take their child to those specialists.

    I think characterizing this as Charlie having "a fighting chance" is an massive overstatement. He has, at best, a slim chance. Better than no chance for sure, but not something you'd want to hang you hat on.

    Characterizing the courts initial decision as heartless and cruel denies how slim that chance is.

    The NHS has paid to keep this baby alive and on a ventilator for almost a year, at no cost to the family. Would an American health insurance company have done the same?

    So, a court deciding, despite the fact that the family has raised the money to pay, that treatment (however slim the chances of it working) is simply not an option is, somehow, an act of humanitarianism? Get real. The court has acted as a "death panel" and has decided that little Charlie is simply not worth saving.
    Um, yes. Can you imagine the sh*t storm they would deal with in the media if they acted as the UK courts have? Even in the UK (not exactly anti-government) the media is blasting the court's decision.
