Charlie Gard's parents seek permission to bring son home

The Truth About The Hospital In The Charlie Gard Case

The baby's father, Chris, believes 11 month-old Charlie could've lived a normal life if he'd received treatment earlier. Most of the time, parents make decisions about what is in the best interests of their children and "so it should be".

Charlie's parents subsequently failed to overturn his ruling in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court in London.

The parents want Charlie to be taken to their home or to the home of a close relative or friend for his last moments until his life support system is switched off.

Their lawyer, Grant Armstrong, told the London High Court that Great Ormond Street was placing "obstacle after obstacle" in the way of the parents' wish.

The hospital's lawyer, Katie Gollop, said Great Ormond Street wanted "above all" to fulfill the parents' last wish, but also had to take the baby's best interests into account.

So said Francis J, when dealing with an unusual application by Great Ormond Street Hospital (Gosh) asking for an order, rather than a declaration, that Charlie Gard should be allowed to slip away quietly.

"The care plan must be safe, it must spare Charlie all pain and protect his dignity".

He said the hospital had suggested a "hospice option". Among other practical problems, it said, the ventilator would not fit through the front door of Charlie's home. "The key obstacle and one which the hospital can not see a way around is the reality of invasive ventilation that Charlie requires".

Victoria Butler-Cole, representing Charlie's legal guardian, said the family's chosen experts can not provide continuing ventilation outside the intensive care setting.

She said providing intensive care to Charlie outside a hospital setting was not simple.

The parents of the terminally ill British child Charlie Gard return to court Tuesday to seek permission to bring their son home from hospital to die, family spokesman Alison Smith-Squire told CNN.

Ms Yates and her partner Chris withdrew their bid to take their terminally ill baby to the USA for experimental therapy on Monday, saying tests had shown the window of opportunity to help their son had closed. He is now on life support and unable to move his limbs or eat or breathe without assistance.

Francis managed the case spinning around the family's desire to look for medicinal treatment in the United States.

Caring for a child with SMA when they have a cold. Under British law, children have rights independent of their parents, and it is usual for courts to intervene when parents and doctors disagree on the treatment of a child.

However, the courts and hospital refused to allow them to transfer their son to another hospital.

Both parties were back at the London High Court on Tuesday, this time for a hearing on arrangements for Charlie's life support to be switched off.

Charlie - who suffers from a rare genetic condition causing progressive muscle weakness and brain damage - would turn a year old on August 4, but his parents believe he "unfortunately won't make his first birthday".
