"An Amazing Answer to Prayer" in Baby Charlie Gard Case: "Miracle after Miracle!"

Claire Chretien : Jul 14, 2017 : LifeSiteNews

"You don't have to open up the pages of the Bible to see God answer prayer. You're seeing it happen here in London in a courtroom involving an extraordinary 11-month-old boy and his incredible parents." – Rev. Patrick Mahoney

(The UK) — [LifeSiteNews] During the court proceedings that will determine whether Charlie Gard lives or dies, there was "an amazing answer to prayer" and it seems his chances of being given another chance are increasing, according to a pro-life pastor who was there.

"We are seeing miracle after miracle in this case," Rev. Patrick Mahoney said of the court proceedings in a Facebook live video. "Ten days ago, virtually no one thought that Charlie Gard would live another day. The court had set the date for the ventilator to be pulled off." But then, "God intervened."

The English court is considering new evidence in Charlie's internationally-watched bioethics and parental rights case. Previously, English and European courts ruled in favor of Great Ormond Street Hospital, not Charlie's parents, being allowed to decide his course of care. The hospital wants to remove baby Charlie's ventilator; his parents have raised over $1.5 million to bring him to the U.S. for experimental treatment.

Charlie has a rare mitochondrial disease. 

A New York doctor ("Dr. I"), whose name Mahoney says he isn't allowed to release, testified via video that if he is able to treat Charlie, the 11-month-old has at least a ten percent chance of improvement.

"You could feel a ripple go through the court" when he said that, Mahoney recounted. And ten percent is a "conservative" estimate – the doctor said Charlie's chances of improvement are as high as 56 percent.

This revelation "changed the dynamic so much that Justice Francis, who [is] presiding over the case, asked Dr. I in open court, would he be willing to come to London to examine Charlie," said Mahoney. This is something "which we have been begging for weeks."

The "whole narrative of the case" has now changed with the possibility of the New York doctor coming to examine Charlie, or the possibility of Charlie going to the United States to be treated.
