Pope calls for respecting parents' wishes to care for dying child

Charlie Gard: US hospital 'offers free treatment' to terminally ill baby after Donald Trump intervenes

The Vatican's children's hospital has offered to take in terminally-ill Charlie Gard after hearing of his plight. The baby's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, have lost their legal battle to keep Charlie on life-support and seek treatment for his rare condition in the United States. The Bambino Gesu' offered to help Yates and her husband Chris Gard after Pope Francis said treatment should be provided "until the end".

Trump did not elaborate on how the U.S. might help the child, but a United States doctor has agreed to carry out an experimental treatment called nucleoside bypass therapy.

A Vatican hospital offered to take Charlie in.

An unnamed U.S. hospital today offered to treat 10-month-old terminally ill Charlie Gard for free, after President Donald Trump said he would be "delighted" to help the baby and his parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates.

At the end of last week, the British baby, who was diagnosed with a rare disease and sentenced to death by European bureaucrats, was waiting to die as his helpless parents looked on.

On Friday, the day Charlie's life support was initially scheduled to be disconnected, the Pope used his Twitter account to send a clear pro-life message in the infant's favor. His doctors now wish to take him off life support.

The Pontifical Academy for Life and the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales extended prayers for Charlie, the medical staff caring for him and the parents.

The High Court considered evidence from a specialist who would oversee any treatment Charlie had at a hospital in the US.

Labour MP Ms Malhotra said: "If there is any room for discretion within the court rulings for Great Ormond Street to allow Charlie to leave and to transfer his care to doctors at Columbia University, and he is sufficiently stable to receive treatment, will the Prime Minister do all she can to bring the appropriate people together to try to make this happen?" "He is praying for them, in the hope that their desire to accompany and care for their own child until the end will be respected", the director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke, said in a statement. His parents have gone through a lengthy legal battle for their son to undergo a therapy trial in the USA, despite doctors saying the treatment would not help. While it is different symptoms - Charlie is deaf, blind, brain damaged and unable to breathe on his own - her son has faced his own difficulties. The parents said that the hospital did not allow them to take Charlie home.

The Vatican has weighed in, saying "we must do what advances the health of the patient, but we must also accept the limits of medicine" and "avoid aggressive medical procedures that are disproportionate to any expected results or excessively burdensome to the patient or the family".
