WVN – The U.S. congress has granted Charlie Gard, a British infant suffering from a fatal genetic disease, U.S. citizenship to enable him and his parents fly to America for his treatment.
His doctors say he is blind, deaf, unable to move and badly brain-damaged and believe it is ‘cruel’ to let him live any longer.
The Mail UK can reveal that his British clinicians emerged from a crucial summit about his fate yesterday still convinced he should be allowed to die.
They apparently failed to be persuaded by American neuroscientist Dr Michio Hirano, who flew back to New York last night.
Dr Hirano and an expert from the Pope’s hospital in Rome spent five and a half hours trying to talk round Charlie’s doctors.
