LEICESTER, United Kingdom - Pope Francis on Wednesday met privately with the father of Alfie Evans, a 23-month-old English child threatened with the removal of his life support.




Alfie was diagnosed with encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, a rare disorder that causes brain damage and an inability to move the limbs, and for which there is no established medical cure.


This is truely sad when yet again the government is claiming rights over your children.

It is reported that the care the child is receiving is seriously lacking including soiled sheets for days and even mold on the vent tubes.

It seems like we have recently seen this story play out where the government will not even let the child go into other forms of care as such has been offered by the Vatican.

How about let's not do what we done to baby charlie...

The guy is kissing his ass because he's a kiss ass. Half the planet is tired of bowing to extremists. What planet are we residing on again, I can't # remember.

I wonder if this is some kind of Catholic/Protestant tug of war. Not like it doesn't have a basis in history. While I think the parents are in denial:


“Our child is sick but not dying and does not deserve to die. He is not terminally ill nor diagnosed,” Evans said. “We have been trying our best to find out his condition, to treat or manage it.”


However:


Alfie was diagnosed with encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, a rare disorder that causes brain damage and an inability to move the limbs, and for which there is no established medical cure.


...is it the gov'ts place to determine where the child dies? And when? Alfie is on life support for a reason.

Well if that astronaut twin can magically turn on his made up "space genes" then there is hope for the child.

I mean the researchers just made that crap up on a whim to fit a news story.

Reports are that the parents are not even allowed to touch the child without facing criminal charges...

My goodness why does the government think it is best to make choices that should be made by parents and doctors?

I mean someone please answer me this???????? Why would it be wrong for the parents to move him to another hospital? Who should really care?

The parents may be too emotional for decisions. The doctors? If it's a pull the plug decision I'm not trusting the doctors. They're not emotional enough. They're probably looking at the bottom line. I don't want doctors to decide if I'm ever on life support.

What may be the concern of the gov't is that transporting Alfie may kill him. He IS on life support.

I thank you for trying to answer but it is all pointless imo.

You get them to sign a waiver and let the vatican have the kid? Wipe your hands clean and go save another.

After the docs already wrote off the child in feb..

It would be in the best interest for the hospital to do so financially speaking.

Perhaps some day the great minds can actually come up with a real life smart bomb that when dropped injects logic into an area.

Unless there's been some massive scientific breakthrough recently in medical science, there's absolutely no hope for this kid. Pretty much all of his brain is gone.
