412061 Charlie Gard
Should we a) keep him alive, b) send him abroad for a 10% therapy or c) let him die?

Why?

I really don't understand why, with the hundreds of seriously sick kids in the country, this one gets so much attention.

I feel as though certain pro-life groups are trying to make this out to be the action of a callous and out of control cabal of doctors, which doesn't seem to be the case.

I have to confess though, not being a doctor, a judge, or a lying American pastor, I haven't followed the case with any great intrigue.

C. Last time I read he was blind, deaf and well fucked.
Don't want to come off as a 13 year old cunt but he's 1 human (Who won't really have a normal fulfilling life) all the money being spent to cover this story and to keep him alive etc could be put to better use.

Just let the poor bastard die and be done with it, Yes its a tragic loss to his parents but life goes on.

Representatives of Great Ormond Street Hospital have testified that Charlie Gard has irreparable brain damage and will be permanently blind, deaf, unable to make purposeful movement and dependent on a respirator. They are of the opinion that, even if his life can be saved by an experimental treatment, his quality of life will be negligible. Evidence to the contrary has been presented by doctors who have never seen the boy.

Charlie's parents are understandably trying to remain optimistic, but there comes a point where optimism becomes delusion. They have been quoted as saying "we don't want him in the ground, we want him riding a bike", but given the extent of the brain damage described by his doctors, this is extraordinarily unlikely.

There is an element of catch-22 in this case. If Charlie has sufficient brain function to experience any sort of quality of life, then it is far more likely that he is suffering and would continue to suffer if efforts were made to prolong his life. If he is not suffering, then it is most likely because his brain is irreparably damaged.

The courts are doing exactly what they are supposed to do - make the best decision on behalf of the patient, on the best available evidence. Mr Justice Francis has clearly stated that he is open to changing his view in light of substantial new evidence, but no such evidence has been presented. The Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights have all upheld the original ruling.

I do not believe that I am in any position to challenge the opinions of a team of world-leading paediatric specialists and the highest courts in the country. I sympathise with the Gard family, but I am extremely sceptical about the motivations of many of their supporters.

IIRC they've done so with the caveat that he's in a far worse state than their own patients were.

Not really bothered whether he lives or dies, just want to stop hearing about it.
Though if was to be alowed to go abroad ideally it wouldn't be on government money. Let them bankrupt themselves or someone else at the altar of St. Jude. Just get it off the telly.

Given how many people are getting annoyed at the publicity this case is getting, I say we offend both sides by running a public poll to decide how we kill him with some suitably creative options.

According to the statement by GOSH, a doctor appointed by the Gard family did perform an assessment on Charlie in April, but came to the same conclusion as the GOSH team. The American professor who is offering the nucleoside treatment has not seen Charlie.

It's a sad case. I think Gard's parents need to move on and let him die with dignity. I don't think you can cure irreparable brain damage, with whatever experimental treatment you have. The Pope and Trump need to butt out, they don't have any medical training. The yank doctor is stepping in for financial gain/notoriety and doesn't have Charlie's best interests at heart. Why this is still going on despite numerous court cases unilaterally saying he should be able to die, is mind boggling.

We? Who gives a shit what 'we' want in regards to something that is nothing to do with anyone but the parents.

Middle class lefties are out with their virtue signalling banners again doing their bit for the social justice Brownie points until the next cause comes along.

This shouldn't be national news, let alone international, one family has a dispute with a hospital. We should simply be asking what are the political motivations that those pushing this case trying to force using emotion rather than reason.

Parental rights and religious doctrine obviously in terms of the bigger backers. This was one of the angles of the Jodie and Mary case as well.

The real reason its in the media is of course the ratings. Hence why we also have knockers in our newspapers.

I think pissing off the hospital is the stupidest part of this case. Why do people do that? If you read their recently published position paper, it is very clear how much they care and what they have done in this case; as they say, there will be many other difficult decisions such as this one every day in hospitals across the UK and it is strange that this one is getting such attention.

My personal opinion is that they should just switch the machine off and let him die. Parents don't have an automatic right over health decisions in their children's lives and the doctors at GOSH are doing the right thing.

As far as I'm aware, they got all the money they needed through donations via gofundme or a kickstarter or something.
(I also assume they're doing a good job of spending all that money on their legal fees.)

Why are they going to the courts? If they can afford it, can't they just fuck off to the USA or South Africa or whatever? Or is this a shitty overreach by the state about how you can't fly with your kid any more.

Fucking twats. The lot of them. They should do the kid a favour and just turn the lights out.
