Charlie Gard's parents to learn fresh High Court verdict

Via Instagram user charliesfight

Chris Gard and Connie Yates want a judge to rule that 11-month-old Charlie Gard, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage, should be allowed to undergo a therapy trial in the US.

They had until Wednesday to submit evidence that experimental treatment overseas could improve their son's condition.

Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital say Charlie should be allowed to die in dignity because therapy proposed by a doctor in America is experimental and will not help.

Today (Thursday July 13) they are back in the High Court to launch the next stage of their legal fight. The hospital believes his life support systems should be turned off.

Today the High Court will give the parents a final chance to prove why their son should not have his life-support withdrawn.

The judge at London's High Court said the case will be held in full on Thursday. "We've been requesting this specialized treatment since November, and never asked the hospital, courts or anyone for anything - except for the permission to go".

Francis who ruled on the original case in April said he would be delighted to change his mind but added: "I want evidence of something that's different".

The baby's father, Chris Gard, accused the hospital of lying at a preliminary hearing on Monday, shouting at the barrister representing the facility: "When are you going to start telling the truth?"

He told the couple he had already analysed the case at a trial and would not rake over old facts.

However, he warned that he will only consider allowing Charlie to go to therapy in the U.S. on the basis of new evidence, rather than arguments that have already been dismissed by himself and the Court of Appeal.

"We love him more than life itself".

Ms Yates said it was the high-profile interventions from the Vatican and Washington that has prolonged their campaign.
