Terminally ill baby case to be considered by ECHR

"Doctors in London must continue providing life-support treatment to terminally-ill baby Charlie Gard, who is at the centre of a life-support legal battle, until midnight on Tuesday June 13, judges at the European Court of Human Rights have said."

"The parents of sick Charlie Gard lost their Supreme Court fight to take their son to America for treatment."

"Chris Gard and Connie Yates want the 10-month-old, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage, to undergo a therapy trial."

"But doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital, where he is being cared for, say they cannot treat him further and his life support should now be turned off."

"They have exhausted legal options in the UK and hope that European judges will now come to their aid."

"The case is now being considered by the European Court of Human Rights."
