Over 100,000 people in the UK have signed a petition that has called on the Queen to intervene and to protect the life of little Alfie Evans.
The petition which was setup on Monday comes after the 23 month old baby’s parents were refused the right to bring their son to Rome for further treatment.
In the petition which was started by Kayleigh Price, on change.org, the public were asked to sign it in the hope that the British monarch would over rule a court order that requests little Alfie’s life support machine be switched off.
The petition’s statement reads as follows: ‘As your people, we implore you to urgently intervene. If her Majesty the Queen does not intervene in some way, we will take this as though she accepts that what is happening to her people in this country is OK.’
‘We the undersigned humbly petition Your Majesty for protection of life and liberty of your 23-month-old subject Alfie Evans.’
‘The judges in Your Majesty’s Court have given orders: to kill Alfie on an appointed hour at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool by withdrawing his life support.’
‘For the day and hour of that killing to be kept secret from the public to avoid any protest or hindrance; For Alfie to be detained in Alder Hey until his death – any attempt to release him to be resisted by force, and punished by imprisonment.’
‘These cruel orders are not authorized by any law ever passed in a democratic Parliament. Instead, the said judges pretend to exercise Your Majesty’s ancient autocratic jurisdiction over the life and death of your subjects.
The added: ‘As loyal subjects, we refuse to believe that Your Majesty would ever command such evil deeds to be done; and we denounce Alfie’s death sentence and imprisonment as a seditious usurpation against Your Majesty and the law of the land.’
‘There is no time to spare anymore. ‘We shall patiently await Your Majesty’s royal protection and justice; and in the meantime, Alfie’s Army and the good people of Liverpool will not sit back and allow this to happen.’
‘I can not stop them from now joining up and demonstrating outside Alder Hey again to do their utmost to defend Alfie against all those who prepare to take his life in the next 24 hours.’
