Thread Name: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
Subject: RE: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
Thank you Iains. I actually hesitated about starting this thread, because as Steve and others have pointed out, it's not really for us as uninvolved bystanders to comment. But it's been troubling me deeply for quite a while, and it's reassuring that people feel concerned too.

As you said in an earlier post, with all the advances in technology in medicine, one would have thought the ethics this raised would have kept up. But I suppose human emotions and instincts will always to some extent override rules and guidelines.

Let's hope today brings some sort of resolution. I read just now that they've shortened the final hearing to one day only (not tomorrow as well, as initially planned) and that the Judge (poor chap!) has indicated he would like all parties to be in agreement.
