Judge Strikes Down Appeal For Alfie Evans' Life

Tom Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, had asked Court of Appeal judges to rule that 23-month-old Alfie could go overseas for treatment.

Alfie, from Bootle, Merseyside, has been at Alder Hey since December 2016 with an undiagnosed degenerative brain disease.

Court of appeal judges ruled yesterday that Tom Evans, 21, and Kate James, 20, could not take their son Alfie Evans overseas to receive treatment for a rare degenerative brain disease. "They should forfeit ability to dictate Alfie's best interests.not terminate his life due to their failures to diagnose him and treat him effectively".

"We fully understand what a sensitive and emotional time this is for everyone involved and I would also therefore like to pass on our appreciation for the way in which Alfie's family were later able to speak to the crowd and offer assurance and calm".

In a statement tearfully read outside the hospital on Monday, Alfie Evans' father accused the hospital of "lying to the police", "stripping [Alfie] of his dignity", "taking away the rights of him and his family to be together", and "trying to dictate what is in Alfie's best interests when we have several pieces of evidence showing Alder Hey to be acting contrary to Alfie's best interest", such as "leaving him in poor and squalid conditions.and with moldy tubes". They want to move Alfie to a hospital in Rome.

Kellyanne Conway's response to Comey interview contradicts Trump's talking point
There are 2 comments on the Yahoo! story from 6 hrs ago, titled Kellyanne Conway On James Comey: "This Guy Swung An Election". Conway reversed her argument later Monday morning, arguing that Comey wasn't capable of swinging an election .

"As has been determined with considerable clarity in this case, Alfie's best interests are determinative and the court has decided what treatment he should or should not receive".

In addition, Moylan said it is "wrong to say that the parents' own views can trump that judicial determination", according to LifeSiteNews.

The parents do, however, have the right to directly ask the Supreme Court for permission to appeal.

In February, the High Court ruled doctors could stop Alfie's life support.

He then alleged the hospital called the police to prevent him removing his son, with officers allegedly telling him he would be "arrested for assault" if he attempted to remove Alfie.

Diamond said he will file an appeal with the Supreme Court by Tuesday afternoon, The Liverpool Echo reported.

And as the emotional court battle rages on, representatives from Alder Hey pleaded with "Alfie's Army" to respect the needs of other patients receiving treatment.

A date was set last week at London's High Court to terminate Alfie's life support but it was not made public for legal reasons.

The letter, from the Liverpool hospital's chief nurse, said the only Alfie's parents and two named visitors were now allowed to visit the Peadiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICO) at one time.

"The awful reality was that nearly the entirety of Alfie's brain has been eroded, leaving only water and cerebral spinal fluid", Moylan said, reading from Hayden's previous decision, according to The Sun.
