[Ed. – We can indulge in cautious optimism here. As gratifying as a direct “rescue” would be — seeing Charlie removed to another country — the better outcome is, in fact, for the UK’s NHS hospital to have to reconsider. That’s a landmark event with long-term implications, if the Brits want it to be. I hope and pray that the eyes of their leaders are opened.]
Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children is going to give Charlie Gard a second chance and is reconsidering their decision to remove his life support, and has filed to the High Court for a new hearing.
In a statement released on Friday, the hospital said that international hospitals have informed them about potential new treatments and that they will “explore” this new evidence. In the meantime, Charlie will be kept on life support. …
[T]here has been an uprising of support for Charlie and his parents, with President Donald Trump as well as Pope Francis offering to assist them and to care for Charlie. Great Ormond Street Hospital, however, has cited legal concerns as for why they would not permit Charlie to leave the hospital.
