Alfie’s LifeMay 2, 2018 |
by Froma Harrop
The baby Alfie Evans has died. Born in Liverpool with a degenerative brain condition, Alfie had been in a semi-vegetative state for over a year. Against his parents’ wishes, the hospital took Alfie off ventilation.
The parents had wanted to move him to a Vatican hospital in Rome that would have kept him on life-support. But the British hospital refused to release the baby, deeming further treatment “futile.”
