British Courts and GOSH being undermined in the Charlie Gard case Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I think it's wrong how two of our leading institutions have been undermined in this case.

    The USA and the Vatican have attempted to undermine the decision of the most senior British courts by thinking they can issue Charlie with a Visa or citizenship to circumvent the bar on him being taken abroad for the experimental treatment. I imagine there would be outrage in the States if Britain did the same if the tables were turned. GOSH has also been demonised I feel throughout this case when it is an excellent hospital.

    I think you are being a little harsh. This is one of those exceedingly emotive topics. No side are really right or wrong. Both believe they have Charlie's interests at heart and I understand Charlies parents wanting to reach out and clutch on to any hope they can. It is one of those cases where no one wins. Being critical of those on the parents side is unhelpful.

    At this point the hospital should wash their hands with them. The undermining and slandering of the hospital is ridiculous. They actually believe that they don't want this kid to succeed. They're beyond delusional now and they need help. They don't have their child's best wishes at heart.

    I feel for the staff who have had a bunch of crap written about them and said on the media. Anyone's who's ever actually been there would know just how professional and caring they are. The US and pope should just stay out of this as it's obvious Donald dump is just seeing this as a way to gain publicity and try look like a good guy.

    The will of the parents is being undermined by the state and busy body doctors.
