State Sponsoraed Terrorism and Charlie Gard

Timothy Birdnow

A British judge, not content with killing poor little Charlie Gard in pursuit of the penultimate power of the STate, has ordered he be sentenced to die in a hospice rather than his home, as his family has requested.

According to the Telegraph:

The hospital has argued that Charlie needed invasive ventilation that only be provided by a hospital in an intensive care unit.

At an emotional hearing on Tuesday, Great Ormond Street said Charlie could die at the hospital or in a hospice it has found for him.

The judge said if an agreement could not be reached by noon on Thursday, Charlie would be moved to a hospice and life support treatment would end soon after.

Charlie's mother, Connie Yates, became distressed as the judge made his decision.

But Great Ormond Street Hospital, which is caring for the terminally ill child, had objected to the plan.


She left court crying and said: "I hope you are happy with yourselves."

Speaking in court on Wednesday, Grant Armstrong, acting for Charlie's parents, said Great Ormond Street Hospital nurses had volunteered to care for Charlie at a hospice if the judge agreed to it.

Mr Armstrong said: "Ironically, the position I am informed today is several of the nurses at Great Ormond Street have volunteered to assist with the care for Charlie. May I pay tribute to those nurses for volunteering."


""The parents wish for a few days of tranquillity outside of a hospital setting," Mr Armstrong said. "The parents had hoped that Great Ormond Street would work with them."

He said the couple felt there was a "brutality" in taking Charlie to a hospice.

Barrister Katie Gollop QC, who leads Great Ormond Street's legal team, said staff were not creating "obstacles".

She said nothing could be further from the truth - she said staff had "moved heaven and earth" for Charlie. But she said the couple's needs had to be balanced against Charlie's best interests."

End excerpts.

See, the State has the ultimate say over this child - not the parents. The nurses so kindly offered to care for the child, a child who is not theirs to care for. Either we own ourselves and by extension our own families or the State does. In Britain it is the State. America will become like that if we continue down the path of single payer aka socialized medicine.

They couldn't even give that small victory of allowing the parents final custody, because it would mean the parents ultimately have final authority. Now, under this viewpoint, the parents are mere caretakers, and have no ultimate rights.

Brutality? You bet your life it is. This was an act of state sponsoraed terrorism.
