Support Charlie Gard, forced off life support by judge

  • 10,358

UPDATE: Charlie Gard's parents have chosen to end their legal battle for Charlie's life. Please pledge to pray for Chris Gard and Connie Yates here.

Connie Yates and Chris Gard want to take their eight-month-old son Charlie to the United States for treatment of a rare disease. Charlie has mitochondrial depletion syndrome, which degenerates his muscles. It is extremely rare, with an estimated 20 cases worldwide.

However, the hospital where Charlie is receiving treatment is refusing to allow Charlie to be transported to the US for treatment and are threatening to remove his life support! This hospital thinks that Charlie's "quality of life" would be so low that experimental treatments would only “prolong the process of dying.” And a judge agreed with them - giving the hospital the right to kill baby Charlie against his parents' wishes!

The boy’s parents said taking their son to the U.S. would not cause him more pain or suffering, but could give him another chance. "We just want to have our chance," Connie told the BBC. "Even if Charlie doesn’t make it through this, I don’t ever want another mum and their child to go through this."

Sign this petition and send it to all of your friends! Let's show our support for baby Charlie and his family! Let's stand for LIFE!
