Unfortunately, it’s not looking good for Alfie Evans… [UPDATE: Family lost]

It’s being reported that the judge has ruled out allowing little Alfie to travel to Rome.

Here’s what we know from the court proceedings:






 
Here’s the reporting that the judge has ruled out a trip to Rome:



What consolation exactly is it for Alfie to go home without being allowed to go to a different hospital? In a different country? One where they just won’t pull the plug on the child and let him die against the wishes of the parents?

Just horrible.

I believe Matt Walsh sums it up for us very well:




He’s exactly right. But I think it’s even more than that. These lawyers aren’t just arguing for the reputation of these doctors, they are arguing for the authority of these doctors. After all, if law essentially says the right of the doctors overrules the rights of the parents, then you just can’t have judges circumventing that law willy nilly. Once precedents are set by judges against the NHS and doctors are proven wrong, it will reveal the stupidity and recklessness of this law.

All the while, a 23-month old little boy dies because the government says they know best.

At the end of the day, it could very well be that Alfie’s condition will lead to his death. They could fly him to Rome, only for him to die tomorrow. But it’s one thing for Alfie to die on his own or for the parents to decide to pull the plug. It’s another thing entirely for a fascist government to pull the plug over the objection of his parents.

 
For Alfie we pray:

Lord, look upon Alfie Evans with eyes of mercy, may your healing hand rest upon him, may your lifegiving powers flow into every cell of his body and into the depths of his soul, cleansing, purifying, restoring him to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom. Amen.

UPDATE:

The family lost…
