    FULL TITLE: Alfie Evans’ Plight is Not Unique, Other Children Have Faced the Same Ordeal. Your Child Might be Next It’s been a titanic battle – UK’s Alder Hey Children’s Hospital versus a helpless 23-month-old boy. Alfie Evans suffers from an undiagnosed neurological disorder. He is not terminal, but that hasn’t stopped the hospital’s aggressive attempts – which some have called perverse, heinous and obscene – to end Alfie’s life. Lest you think we’re safe in America, our nation’s landscape is already littered with innocent victims. Throughout a lengthy string of court actions, Alder Hey has opposed Alfie’s parents at...

    A German doctor and professor is slamming the way that Alfie Evans has been treated by the British medical system and courts. He says Alfie should have been home a long time ago and that if Alfie were a patient in Germany that would have happened. As LifeNews has reported, Alfie’s parents are attempting to get him home in negotiations with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. That is the hospital that removed Alice’s life support without their permission. As the parents of Alfie Evans were preparing to meet with hospital staff to find out if they would be able to bring...

    Alfie Evans is at Alder Hey Hospital in the PICU. He has been hospitalised continuously since December 2016, dealing with chronic seizures of an undiagnosed disorder. The hospital has given up on him and applied to the High Court to remove parental rights and withdraw ventilation to end Alfie’s life. Yet Alfie and his parents are FIGHTING! Help us save his life and protect parents' rights to care for their children! Join thousands who signed our petition and donate towards Alfie's medical care.

    As the parents of Alfie Evans await a meeting today with hospital staff to find out if they would be able to bring him home, a prominent doctor who has studied Alfie says he is not dying and is not brain-dead and says the hospital needs to quit holding him as if he were in a prison. Alfie supposedly has a degenerative neurological condition but that diagnosis is being challenged now that Alfie is breathing on his own without life support. Alfie EvansÂ’ parents will meet with staff from Alder Hey ChildrenÂ’s Hospital today to request permission to take Alfie...

    It’s bad enough that the British government is essentially sentencing Alfie Evans to death. Now British police have announced that they will monitor and prosecute anyone who posts on social media a “malicious communication” supporting Alfie Evans or complaining about the hospital and courts. Nevermind that Alder Hey Children’s Hospital is apparently misleading the court about Alfie, if anyone posts anything negative about the hospital or its officials and their treatment of Alfie, apparently they will be monitored and potentially prosecuted by local police in London. The good news for LifeNews and many people around the world who support Alfie...

    Archbishop Malcolm McMahon said staff had done everything 'humanly possible' for the infant The Archbishop of Liverpool has backed Alder Hey hospital’s handling of the Alfie Evans case, saying doctors have done everything “humanly possible” to help the child. Archbishop Malcolm McMahon was in Rome yesterday where he briefly met Pope Francis. He told the Tablet magazine that had spoken with Pope Francis about Alfie Evans. “I was struck by his compassionate attitude to both Alfie and his parents, and he promised me he is continuing to pray for them,” he said. “I explained to him that the Catholic people...

    Appeal judges upheld Tuesday's High Court rulingThe parents of Alfie Evans have lost their latest appeal to have the seriously ill 23-month-old child taken to Italy for continued treatment. Lawyers for Tom Evans and Kate James made another attempt to undo a High Court ruling preventing them flying their son to the Vatican-owned Bambino Gesu hospital in Rome. However, the court of appeal upheld the High Court’s verdict, rejecting all grounds raised by the parents. Paul Diamond, representing Tom Evans, told the court the parents were not seeking a “miracle cure” but were “simply seeking the palliative care that is...

    FULL TITLE: Hospital Misleads Appeals Court: We Never Said Alfie Evans Would Die Soon. Told Court in February He’d Die “in Minutes” Testifying at the appeals court today in the battle over Alfie Evans, doctors representing Alder Hey Children’s Hospital appear to have mislead the court. According to a tweet from a journalist in the courtroom today, hospital doctors say they never told Alfie Evans’ family that he would die soon after removal of his life support. However representatives of the hospital told the court back in February that Alfie would die within minutes and that he probably would “suddenly”...

    FULL TITLE: Judge in Alfie Evans Case: Quit Telling Me He’s a Human Being, “There’s Virtually Nothing of His Brain Left” The Alfie Evans case is the latest in a long line of cases where courts and doctors have determined that patients are supposedly too far gone and supposedly don’t have the quality of life to justify even basic nutrition or care and treatment — let alone experimental treatment to try to treat their conditions or diseases. Nowhere was this more on display than in Judge Hayden’s courtroom yesterday where the British judge had no interest in attorneys for Alfie’s...

    Whatever happens with the legal battle over Alfie Evans’ life and death and whether his parents can take him home or take him to Italy for proper care and treatment, the battle in the courts may continue for some time. That’s because Alfie’s parents reportedly considered legal action against the doctors and staff from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital that withdrew his life support without their permission. That Tom Evans considered filing suit against medical personnel came out in today’s hearing before the Appeals Court considering the decision but Justice Hayden: Alfie Evans’ father has threatened to privately prosecute three NHS...

    Alfie Evans parents are hoping an appeals court today will allow them to take their son to Italy for medical care and treatment. They have an air ambulance standing by ready to transport Alfie to a pediatric hospital in Rome that is ready to take him and provide additional treatment. However, officials at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital just kicked out two paramedics from the air ambulance and made them leave the premises after they were talking with Alfie’s parents. This is the latest example of the hospital’s lack of care and concern for the 23-month old boy who is dealing...

    FULL TITLE: Hospital Officials Waited 28 Hours Before Finally Feeding Alfie Evans. “Not Even an Animal Would be Treated Like This” Little Alfie Evans is finally getting food. But officials at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital waited 28 hours before finally feeding the 23-month old boy, who is fighting a rare neurological condition. It’s bad enough that Alfie is not being allowed to go home or to be transferred to a hospital in Italy that has promised to provide him appropriate care and treatment and possible experimental treatment. But the little boy also had to face the prospect of only getting...

    FULL TITLE: Alfie Evans Survives for 36 Hours After Hospital Yanks His Life Support. Father: “It’s Totally Unexpected” Little Alfie Evans has survived for 36 hours after a children’s hospital yanked his life support without his parents’ consent. That’s despite the prediction doctors made that Alfie wouldn’t live very long after his life support was removed. Yesterday, the judge in the Alfie Evans case has officially prohibited his parents from flying the 23-month old boy to Rome Italy to take him to a pediatric hospital that has offered to provide appropriate medical care and treatment for him. Alfie’s parents had...

    As attorneys for Alfie EvansÂ’ family and Alder Hey ChildrenÂ’s Hospital battle it out in court over the future of the 23-month old little boy, a huge new concern has materialized. The judge in the case just prohibited AlfieÂ’s family from taking him to Italy for care and treatment and potential experimental treatment for his rare degenerative neurological disorder. There is still a determination to be made about whether or not AlfieÂ’s family can take him home. But before any of that happens, AlfieÂ’s father Tom is concerned about his son and whether or not he will starve to death...

    FULL TITLE: Terri Schaivo’s Brother: “Courts and Physicians Perversely Insist Its in Alfie Evans’ Best Interest to Die” The brother of Terri Schiavo certainly understands what happens when courts and doctors say someone should die. Bobby Schindler and his family fought a losing uphill battle against the court system that decided Terri was better off dead than living as a disabled patient. The parallels of what happened in the Terri Schiavo case and what is happening with little Alfie Evans are scary indeed. In both instances a court system has decided that a patient is better off dead and that...

    Pope Francis has been praying for the British toddler Alfie Evans — and the Italian government has granted the child Italian citizenship and lined up a transportation plan that could swiftly bring the sick little boy to a Vatican hospital. But Alfie’s doctors say he cannot be healed, and shouldn’t make the trip at all. On Tuesday, according to lawyers representing Alfie’s family, a British judge sided with the doctors, saying that the family cannot accept the offer to take Alfie to the Vatican for treatment.

    Remember the Charlie Gard case? Parents of the young child had to watch the National Health Service in the United Kingdom allow him to die after refusing to allow the child to leave the country for experimental treatment. The diagnosis was too dire and the case considered too terminal for parental wishes to be considered.A ghastly rerun is taking place, this time with Alfie Evans, only this time the diagnosis is unclear — and he’s surviving on his own after a court ordered him removed from a ventilator: Mr Justice Hayden also appeared to rule out his family’s wishes...

    THE President of the Italian National Institute of Health lambasted the latest UK High Court's decision on Alfie Evans' case as they ruled Alder Hey Children’s Hospital could stop providing Alfie’s crucial life support against his parents' wishes. Speaking to Italian daily La Repubblica, Walter Ricciardi said his NHS British colleagues often make "shocking and inhumane" decisions on life-death case such as Alfie Evans'. He said: "Quite often English people make decisions I do not approve of. "They are unable to break away from rigid NHS norms and regulations. "There are a lot of other more humane ways to deal...
