British toddler Alfie Evans deserves a chance at life no matter the cost or the trouble. Unfortunately, the deranged U.K. justice system doesn’t see it that way. Now, Alfie’s father wants to take action against the doctors that have been at odds with Alfie’s parents over whether the boy’s life is worth saving.
FYI, it’s most definitely worth saving even if Alfie has been diagnosed as terminally ill with a degenerative neurological disorder.
According to the Daily Mail:
Alfie Evans is 'struggling' to survive two days after his life support was ended, the High Court heard today, as it emerged the toddler's father wants three Alder Hey Children's Hospital doctors prosecuted for conspiracy to murder.
The developments came as lawyers for Alfie's parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, made another attempt to overturn a High Court ruling stopping them flying their son to the Pope's children's hospital in Rome.
The doctors at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool decided — much like the tragic Charlie Gard debacle — that there was nothing more they could do for the child, so they chose to take the little boy off of life support without the parents permission.
The doctors — who are prohibited from being named — have each been served a summons, the Daily Mail also reported.
Despite being taken off the ventilator, Alfie is fighting to hang on. His father said in a video that Alfie had been revived for a third time since he forced to breathe on his own.
If Alfie survives long enough for a surprise change in the High Court’s decision to keep him Alder Hey, both Italian and German ambulances — both ground and air — are on standby to take Alfie to the Bambino Gesu Hospital in Rome, the Pope’s children’s hospital. The Italian government granted Alfie citizenship on Monday in order to make it easier for a possible move to the Pope's children's hospital.
Of course, none of this would be necessary if the British government didn’t control the lives of its citizens.
This is what you get with a socialized medical system. The government decides whether you’re worthy enough to live or if you should die.
