LONDON – The British toddler Alfie Evans is Saturday morning early death. That has to be the father of the terminally ill boy through Facebook to let you know, with a “broken heart.” “My gladiator has his shield laid down and wings”, wrote Tom Evans. Kate, the mother of James took in similar terms, saying goodbye and thanked everyone for their statements of support.
The fate of Alfie has both inside and outside Great Britain for the fuss taken care of.
Alfie, 23 months old, suffered from a rare degenerative brain disorder and had been for more than a year in a semi-vegetative state. He couldn’t move, speak, and hear. Continue to treat according to the doctors is pointless.
After a number of lawsuits, which to a lot of commotion led, decided the children’s hospital, Alder Hey in Liverpool, the life support measures Monday to terminate, against the wishes of the parents. These wanted their son to Rome in the hope of salvation, but were denied permission.
The affair attracted worldwide attention. The key question was whether judges, doctors or parents have the right over the life of a young child to decide. The father and mother of Alfie received acclaim from, among others, pope Francis and the Polish president Andrzej Duda. Their hope for a miracle increased because their son, who is quickly the Italian nationality had been several days on its own power continued to breathe.
