Why is decision to remove a child from a ventilator made by hospital bureaucrats and judges, and not the child’s parents? From Arjun Walia at collective-evolution.com:
The parents of Alfie Evans, a little boy from Liverpool, are having tremendous difficulty taking their son home after doctors seem to be laying down controversial claims about the child being brain-dead. Alfie supporters will descend upon Buckingham Palace for a mass Protest and Prayer Rally. The Main Event at Buckingham Palace for Alfie will begin at 4 pm CLICK HERE for more details.

Judge Justice Hayden decided to disconnect Alfie Evans from the ventilator that kept him alive. The ventilation was taken away from him on Monday 23/04/2018 at 21.17 local time in Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, and more than 48 hours later he is still living and breathing, even cracking a smirk (see below). His parents have been begging the hospital and the doctors to let them take him home.
They claim that he is brain-dead and in a vegetative state, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Alfie didn’t die within a few minutes like the doctors claimed he would, he is still alive, for over 48 hours now, without any help from medical machines. For 10 straight hours, the hospital refused to provide the boy with either oxygen or fluids in hopes he would pass away, but the child remained strong!
“On April 25, 2018 the appeal hearing was held at Royal Court of Justice. After over 4 hours listening to family and hospital lawyers, Lord Justice McFarlane decided to uphold the judgment made by Judge Hayden of taking Alfie’s life.” (source)
Below is a post from Alfie’s mother on April 23rd via her Facebook page. He is adorable, and the parents KNOW, as it’s quite obvious to many who are just picking up on this story, that there seems to be chances for survival, all he would need is the proper care, but authorities are refusing a transfer to another hospital. Again, the very fact that he is still breathing should set off alarm bells.
Italy wanted to help and granted Alfie citizenship at the start of this week so that the parents could easily bring the child over for proper treatment. The hospital is still denying this as an option. How can this hospital do what the complete opposite of what parents want? Why refuse care? Especially when they have been wrong about Alfie so many times? What is going on here!?
