[Ed. – One hardly knows what to say at this point.  A UK that cannot see the difference between the state intervening AGAINST life, versus the state intervening FOR it, cannot long survive as a livable, peaceful, free nation.  The calculations of human power may be indifferent to life, but God is not.  What we are not competent to govern or repair, we would do far better not to presume to rule on.]

The father of twenty-three-month-old Alfie Evans told reporters on Tuesday that he is giving his son mouth-to-mouth resuscitation after the hospital withdrew the baby’s life support. …

Alfie’s life support was removed Monday afternoon, and he is now only receiving oxygen. Doctors were “gobsmacked” that the toddler continued to breathe on his own close to 24 hours after he was taken off life support, his father said.

A High Court judge on Monday denied Alfie’s parents’ last-minute request that they be allowed to take their son, who has a degenerative neurological disease, to Italy for treatment following the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital’s decision that the toddler’s life support be taken away against his parents’ wishes.
