Parents of terminally-ill British toddler Alfie Evans lose court appeal

Parents of terminally-ill British toddler Alfie Evans lose court appeal

Pope Francis on Sunday prayed for Alfie and others who are suffering from serious infirmities.

Tom Evans and Kate James, from Liverpool, had made another application to judges after losing a second fight over their 23-month-old son at the Court of Appeal.

They said a person unable to move because of measures taken in a hospital intensive care unit to keep them alive was not being "deprived of liberty". The decision was made after three appeal court judges endorsed a plan drawn up by doctors earlier this week.

Christian Concern claims that last week, an air ambulance crew arranged by Alfie's parents was blocked by Alder Hey Hospital from taking Alfie for treatment overseas.

I put a period on this sentence decades ago and accepted at face value the declaration that women could do any job that men can. The headline writers couldn't resist using a passenger quote about Shults having "nerves of steel".

The U.K. High Court, court of appeals, and Supreme Court all ruled in favor of the analysis of Alder Hey staff during Tom and Kate's months-long legal battle for Alfie, saying it was in Alfie's best interests to allow him to die and end all attempts to save his life.

"It is my honest hope that everything necessary may be done in order to continue compassionately accompanying little Alfie Evans, and that the deep suffering of his parents may be heard", he said on Twitter.

"I will do whatever it takes to get Alfie out", Alfie's father concluded.

Speaking during his general audience, the Pope called for prayers for Alfie and for the respect of all human lives.

The parents want to take their son to be treated at a hospital in Rome and hundreds of people protested outside the hospital last week when his father asked staff to release the boy. But doctors said his condition was irreversible.

Alfie's parents had also argued that Alfie was being wrongly "detained" at Alder Hey and had made a habeas corpus application. On Monday, the Court of Appeal upheld the lower court conclusion that flying Alfie to a hospital in Rome - the Vatican's Bambino Gesu pediatric hospital - would be wrong and pointless. They said treatment should continue until Supreme Court justices had made a decision.

Alfie's parents had previously lost one round of fights, in the high court, court of appeal, supreme court and the European court of human rights.
