If one to hear the story about Charlie Gard and not know what country this was concerning we would assume it would be Syria or North Korea not one of the great democracies, Great Britain. For how can a civilized society put to death an innocent child where there is even a glimmer of hope. It is true that the procedure which the parents want to try on their suffering young child only has a 10% success rate but it must be their decision to make. To make matters more extreme this would come at no expense to the government since the parents and charities are willing to pay for this procedure and any follow up work. Therefore there is one decision fight for life and let the loving parents decide what is best for their family not the court.
