Breaking: Charlie Gard parents withdraw petition to bring child to US; Mother: “Charlie did have a real chance of getting better”

    As far as I’m concerned, those judges over there are no better than hitler’s judge, roland freisler. Or for that matter, any soviet era ‘judge’.
    They killed that kid by erasing any chance (even experimental) of treatment through delay tactics that are often favored by leftists.

    When Elizabeth, the last reminder of what was ever great about the country, goes they might as well turn off the lights. It’s already well on its way to becoming a third world despotic cesspool. This tragedy is just another nail in the coffin.

    In this age of not trusting our government, and trusting our media even less, I find myself wondering what the real reason was that his parents canceled his treatment.
    Is this story mostly true?

    • Because the courts effectively held him hostage, Charlie was now physically at a point when nothing could medically help him. This, I suspect, was the plan.

    The doctors of the NHS wanted a certain outcome. They did everything to insure that outcome comes about by delaying and taking the child hostage and ignoring the parent’s wishes.

      British Death Panels, just like the ACA Death Panels, and Wynne cutting back on healthcare for seniors in Ontario. Older folks tend to be more conservative. This is how the left eliminates them as a voting block.
