British Toddler Alfie Evans' Case Spreads to American Mainstream Media

British Toddler Alfie Evans' Case Spreads to American Mainstream Media

Following a court ruling on Monday, the child's life-support equipment was switched off but he has confounded expectations by continuing to breathe unaided.

The father of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans said Thursday that he would work with doctors to give his son "dignity and comfort", as he called for a truce in a divisive case that has pitted doctors and the British courts against Alfie's parents, Christian groups and the pope.

"Recent, high profile cases have seen parents drawn through protracted legal battles, which have forbidden children to be taken from hospital for medical care by their clinical peers in other countries and leading parents to become the clinical link for their own child", they added.

Woolfe, a member of the European Parliament representing Northwest England, also issued a press release about the need for a change to current United Kingdom laws governing the agency of children, their parents and the state.

He said: "The cases of Charlie Gard, Aysha King, and now Alfie Evans, show a risky trend of public bodies depriving parents and families of the right to make decisions they believe are in the best interests of their children". British doctors say further treatment is futile and he should be allowed to die.

Mr Evans said Alfie was "not suffering" and not in pain. "It's time for Alfie's Law", Woolfe said, according to Express. His parents, however, have fought for months to take him to a hospital in Italy, where he would be kept on life support.

He said: "As I sit next to Alfie's bedside, every second of every day, it encourages me more and more that he will live for "x" amount of months, possibly years".

Allen was seen by many as the most talented gunslinger at his position. "I'm going to go compete and go try to earn a spot". Others tossed their cups or aluminum cans in the air as several spun around with smartphones, capturing a crowd gone mad.

Alfie's case has drawn global attention, with officials in largely Catholic Poland and Italy implicitly criticizing Britain's courts and state-run National Health Service. "Perhaps all that's needed is some goodwill on the part of decision makers".

"That must be enough for you now to consider that Alfie may prove you wrong".

Pope Francis has backed the child's parents in their attempts to get treatment in Rome.

Italy has a military plane on standby to transport Alfie to Rome if the courts allow it. Alfie has also been granted Italian citizenship to facilitate his arrival and transport.
