After a truly shocking week that saw the world look on – Alfie Evans’ parents have begged doctors to let them take their baby home.
On Tuesday night, Tom Evans, little Alfie’s dad confirmed that the family were going to appeal today’s High Court decision to allow his baby receive the care and medical help he deserves and has been offered in Italy.
On Tuesday afternoon, it was confirmed that a High Court judge has rejected Tom and Kate’s plea to allow their baby Alfie Evans fly to Rome for treatment to help save his life.
Tom claims that heartless doctors switched off his baby’s life support roughly around 1am Monday morning.
Little warrior, Alfie, has been breathing since and he is fighting for his life.
The Judge said Alfie’s parents could take their baby home and asked doctors to see if there was anything else they could do.
After an intervention from Pope Francis, Italy offered asylum to Alfie and offered him exploratory treatment in the Bambino Hospital in Rome.
However, tragically the appeals court said that Alfie could not travel to Italy and that he wasn’t allowed go back home with his parents as they are deemed a “flight risk”.
One has to wonder where on earth any humanity is in the eyes of the State, the law of the hospital staff for this little beautiful baby.
