    ECHR orders UK doctors to continue providing care to baby.

    The European Court of Human Rights has ordered British doctors to continue providing care to a seriously ill baby until Sunday while judges consider his case.

    Connie Yates and Chris Gard, whose infant son is on life support are awaiting a final decision from Strasbourg on whether they can take Charlie to the US for experimental treatment, following a bitterly fought series of failed legal challenges in the UK.

    Charlie, who was born last August has a genetic condition, inherited via the mitochondria, that causes progressive deterioration of the muscles.

    Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London said it would be more compassionate to move to a palliative care regime that would allow the baby to die. However, his parents disagree with the doctors’ assessment and want to be allowed to take Charlie to a hospital in the US where they hope he can be treated.

    The Guardian: Charlie Gard to be kept on life support while European judges consider case

    Misleading thread title, they were hardly going to do anything else until they made their decision.

    The thread title is correct. The ECHR made an explicit ruling directing doctors to continue their care.

    A couple who want to take their terminally ill baby son to the USA for treatment have been given a six day reprieve as the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) said that doctors must continue treating him.

    They were hardly going to direct the life support be turned off before they made their decision now were they.

    Unfortunately this is true, vast amounts are being raised in local communities, money that used to raised to help locally and more effectively in these local communities.
