Charlie Gard Legal Challenge Ends ~by Legal Pub

Poor little Charlie.  Apparently, his time on this earth is about to end. Chris Gard and Connie Yates, parents of little Charlie Gard are ending the legal fight to obtain treatment.  The legal battle has lasted five months and in the eyes of the parents, "a whole lot of time has been wasted."  In the couples view, the time it has taken to decide the matter in the courtroom has caused irreparable damage and that the chances for recovery are now nil.  The parents were admirably represented by barrister, Grant Armstrong.  The latest medical reports show irreparable damage to the the muscle tissue of and organs of the infant. The couple hope to set up a foundation in Charlie's name that might help similarly situated children.

Connie Yates hugged her husband Chris Gard as she told the court that they had decided it was no longer in the best interests of their 11-month-old baby to pursue an experimental treatment in the U.S.
Consequently, the legal challenge to keep little Charlie alive has ended.
