Alfie’s parents had tried to get the court to withdraw Alfie from the hospital since they are his parents and legal guardians. However the British High Court refused today after a court hearing.
Judges have also approved a plan for withdrawing treatment and bringing Alfie’s life to an end. Alfie Evans’ father met with Pope Francis at the Vatican and was told that the Vatican hospital is “ready to take Alfie immediately” and provide the care and treatment. Tom Evans met the Pope and the president of the Bambino Gesú hospital.
