Thread Name: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
Subject: RE: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
They haven't revealed his findings yet Mrrzy. But really, what can he do at this stage? The brain damage is so severe the child cannot even breathe without a ventilator. I agree that to all intents and purposes, Charlie is not actually 'alive'. In the same way that my sister's husband wasn't. He was merely a body being prevented from decomposing so that his organs could be removed for transplants. My poor sister realised that, and bravely consented to it all. But she's a doctor, and knew only too well what the 'prognosis' was. Charlie's parents are caught up in a terrible obsession of fighting for their son. The poor couple can't accept the actual situation, and one can only deeply pity them.
