Prayer Alert! Following International Outrage and Prayer, Baby Charlie Gard to Get Another Chance in Court

Claire Chretien : Jul 10, 2017 : LifeSiteNews.com

Charlie's parents would not give up. "Had they not been so perseverant, so dedicated to their son, so devoted to him getting care, he would be dead right now. They stood strong and God honored them." -Rev. Patrick Mahoney

"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," Great Ormond Street Hospital said in a statement Friday.

Chris Gard and Connie Yates, Charlie's parents, have been fighting in European courts for their right to bring their 11-month-old to the U.S. for experimental treatment for his rare muscle and brain disease. They raised over $1 million to do this, but English courts sided with the hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, which wants to remove him from life support rather than allow him to be transferred to another hospital.

Then, the European Court of Human Rights also sided with the hospital. Charlie was scheduled to die on Friday, June 30, but his parents have been granted more time with him. The hospital has the legal right to turn off Charlie's life support at any time now, and his parents aren't allowed to take him out of the hospital.

International pro-life activists Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Bobby Schindler, and Catherine Glenn Foster were supposed to be in the meeting with Charlie's parents and hospital officials, which was supposed to be at 5:00 p.m. London time. It was moved to an earlier time, the activists told LifeSiteNews in an exclusive interview.

Mahoney, standing outside Great Ormond Street Hospital, told LifeSiteNews via phone: "This is obviously a significant victory for Charlie and his family first, but [also] for parental rights. The fact that the hospital is willing to consider new information—I'm sure this is connected with the overtures made by the New York Presbyterian and Columbia University hospitals and other universities."

"Some of the doctors are saying there's a ten percent chance with this experimental treatment that Charlie's life could significantly improve," said Mahoney. "Ten percent is a significant number."
