Parents of Alfie Evans suffer new defeat in battle for treatment overseas

Tom Evans and Kate James disagree with doctors on their son's prognosis

Tom Evans and Kate James disagree with doctors on their son's prognosis

He said that Alfie "tried his best to stay awake but after a couple of minutes and a couple of very exhausted kid flickers he went back of to sleep".

In a statement, Alder Hey Children's Hospital said it trusted that "the public and supporters of Alfie's parents will read in detail the decision of the Court of Appeal following today's hearing".

CBN News reported that last week a justice had set a date and time to take Alfie Evans off life support against the wishes of his parents.

"We just wanted to take our son to give him the chance he deserves".

Tom gave a statement in which he slammed Alder Hey hospital after the court struck down their appeal.

Alfie has an unidentified neurodegenerative condition that Alder Hey Hospital claims is untreatable.

Tom and Kate sought to have Alfie transferred to the Vatican's Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital in Rome, which has offered to treat him.

Baby Alfie Evans' father Tom delivered a defiant message to Alder Hey Children's Hospital after a United Kingdom judge rejected the parents' latest bid to save their son's life.

The couple, from Liverpool, have lost cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.

West Ham v Stoke
While he is happy at West Ham, he would leave if the opportunity to play Champions League football came. The Hammers entertain the Potters with a six-point lead over the bottom three heading into the weekend.

They also rejected a request for the case to go to the Supreme Court.

Alder Hey said in a statement: "We would ask that noise levels outside the hospital are kept to a minimum and for example auto horns are not sounded". The child's parents also suggested that Alfie was being unlawfully detained at Alder Hey, but the judge dismissed that suggestion.

Last week, a judge decided it was in the best interests of Alfie for his life support to be switched off. The court expressly determined that it would be lawful, because treatment would be in Alfie's best interests and that no other available course would be.

In addition, Moylan said it is "wrong to say that the parents' own views can trump that judicial determination", according to LifeSiteNews. This led to the hospital restricting the number of visitors to Alfie. They say doctors at Alder Hey children's hospital in Liverpool have refused to let them remove Alfie from the premises.

Court of Appeal judges upheld his decisions.

But the couple might make an application to the Supreme Court. The court stayed the removal of Alfie's life support, pending the decision of the Supreme Court.

Speaking outside the hospital, Alfie's dad declared "it's not over" while crowds of supporters chanted "get him out".

In February, Mr. Justice Hayden of the High Court ruled that whatever was causing Alfie's condition, the damage to the toddler's brain was so severe that it was in his best interest to be taken off life support. "He has been treated in Alder Hey since 2015". "Treatment is futile as experts both here and overseas agree".
