First, a British judge told a dying baby’s parents they could not take their child to the U.S. for experimental treatment. On Wednesday a judge may tell them the infant cannot die at the family’s home in London, but in a hospice instead.
At a hearing in London, a British high court judge is scheduled to decide where the life of 11-month-old Charlie Gard will end.
Officials at the London hospital where the brain-damaged infant is receiving care say that life-support treatment cannot be done in a practical manner in the home of the infant’s parents. They prefer that he be moved to a hospice facility instead, the BBC reported.
Doctors at the hospital noted that the ventilator the baby needs cannot fit through the front door of the parents’ home.
