The World’s Gaze is Set Towards London: Charlie Gard’s Fate

The world is waiting with baited breath to know the fate of Charlie Gard.

The 11-month-old was sentenced to death by his own government despite his parents’ wishes.

The judge in his case last week allowed for the physician from the United States who’d offered Charlie’s parents experimental treatment, Dr. Michio Hirano, to come and examine Charlie. That examination took place on Monday, and Charlie also received his first brain scan since April.

His parents, Chris and Connie, are optimistic.

It’s not too late for you to show your support for Charlie by signing our petition. He needs all the support he can get, especially in these next crucial days. Signing the petition also signs you up for our update emails on his story.

Dr. Hirano spent five hours at the hospital where he was granted full rights as the hospital’s own clinicians, giving him full access to Charlie’s medical records, diagnostic images, and other files.

Charlie’s doctors at the hospital claim he has irreversible brain damage and his condition is “beyond hope.” Dr. Hirano, who specializes in Charlie’s rare form of mitochondrial depletion syndrome, claims his experimental treatment could give Charlie a 56% chance of “meaningful improvement.”

Discussions between Dr. Hirano and other medical experts will continue today (Tuesday).

The Hospital still maintains the position that Charlie should be granted death with dignity, though Charlie’s parents continue to fight for his right to fight for his life.

Charlie’s story brings up important questions we must face seriously regarding life, death, and what human dignity means.

Who gets to decide if an individual’s life has value? Who’s the expert on this? And should experts have the final say over the parents of the person in question?

If we deem the life has no value, then can we take it?

Can we remove life-support from individuals dependent on it for their continued breath?

Charlie is 11 months old now and fighting for his life. His parents have vowed to continue fighting as long as he is.

As the world is watching, what will the government, the hospital, the doctors, and others do for Charlie? Sentence him to “death with dignity” against his parents’ wishes, or give him a fighting chance at life?


We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.
