Ms Yates returned to the High Court on Tuesday for a new hearing a day after abandoning legal action over treatment for the terminally-ill baby.

As worldwide pressure and support for baby Charlie's chance at treatment grew, Great Ormond Street Hospital announced that it was calling for a new hearing in light of "claims of new evidence relating to potential treatment for his condition".

Charlie suffers from a rare form of mitochondrial disease, which causes progressive muscle weakness in the heart and other key organs.

The parents of British baby Charlie Gard on Monday abandoned their legal fight to take their son to the United States for experimental treatment in a case that has attracted global attention. The 11-month-old has a rare genetic condition, and his parents want him to receive an experimental treatment.

However, the hospital underlines, "an important result" was reached: "Charlie's life support has not been removed, before responding to his parents' legitimate request and before properly and thoroughly verifying the child's clinical conditions and all the existing possibilities of care".

The case won global attention after Charlie's parents received support from Pope Francis, U.S. President Donald Trump and some members of the U.S. Congress.

The court heard how GOSH "must honour his parent's wishes" about where and when Baby Gard ends his life, but that he breathes with a ventilator which has to stay in hospital.

We've been bamboozled! Michael Phelps didn't actually race a shark
Granted, this time includes a turn, the record has not been reset in many years, even by Phelps himself. Phelps took to Twitter , too , but with a positive outlook on how the premier went.

A Lawyers for the guardians of Charlie Gard told a judge Tuesday their last wish is to take their basically sick child home to pass on. "Due to delay, that window of opportunity has been lost", Armstrong said. They said life-support treatment should stop. Charlie's parents have made a decision to stop fighting.

He accused London's Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie is being treated, of putting obstacles in the way.

The efforts to keep Charlie's parents from seeking overseas treatment were based on deep ethical errors, a Catholic expert in medical ethics told CNA earlier this year. "Mummy and Daddy love you so much Charlie, we always have and we always will and we are so sorry that we couldn't save you".

Mr Armstrong told the court: "The parents wish for a few days of tranquility outside of a hospital setting".

It's poppycock, of course, and not just because the reports have shown that the baby has been receiving professional, compassionate care and that the hospital's case for taking him off life support has been a merciful one - they are anxious he's in a lot of pain and know that he is not going to get better.

In a statement to the High Court, GOSH said it was "increasingly surprised and disappointed" Professor Michio Hirano "had not read Charlie's contemporaneous medical records or viewed Charlie's brain imaging or read all of the second opinions about Charlie's condition".

Greg Burke, the Holy See press officer, said July 24 that "Pope Francis is praying for Charlie and his parents and feels especially close to them at this time of vast suffering".
