- The parents of the incurably ill British baby Charlie Gard indicated Monday stopping the legal struggle with which they tried to enforce a treatment for their child in the US.
Father Chris and Mother Connie are convinced that the experimental treatment that they wanted to undergo their son is now no longer useful. That's what a doctor told them.
The parents of Charlie, who, by a rare genetic aberration, can not self-reliably and presumably suffer from pain, have recently been involved in a legal battle with the hospital.
They wanted to go to the US for an experimental treatment with Charlie, but according to the doctors it does not make sense.
The opinions about whether or not the eleven month old baby is treated differently at home and abroad. The hospital staff where the deathly Charlie is being treated has received various death threats and injunctions over the past period. Director Mary MacLeod of the Great Ormond Street Hospital has already known that it has even occurred in the hospital.
