Trump wants to help support parents of terminally ill Charlie Gard

Published

on

US President Donald Trump has lent his support to the parents of terminally ill Charlie Gard.

Aswell as Pope Francis who called for Chris Gard and Connie Yates to be able to “accompany and treat their child until the end”

Charlie suffers a rare genetic condition and has brain damage is currently being cared for at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

On Monday, Mr Trump tweeted: “If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the UK and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so”

Earlier, in a statement, the Vatican press office said the pope “is following with affection and sadness the case of little Charlie Gard and expresses his closeness to his parents.

“For this he prays that their wish to accompany and treat their child until the end is not neglected”.

 

Charlie Gard aged 10-months-old and suffers a rare genetic condition, he is brain damaged and has been on life support since October.

His Parents Chris Gard and Connie Yates have now lost their legal battle to take the youngster to America for experimental treatment.

The Judges at the European court agreed today that the majority of them would not hear the case which would be their “final” decision meaning Charlie’s life support will be turned off.

They said that they believe the British courts have made the right decision when they found that the baby Charlie should be allowed to “die with dignity”.

Judges have now also lifted the interim court order which required to keep him on life support at the Great Ormond Street Hospital while the case was being considered.

Sadly this marks the road of the end of a legal battle and Charlie’s support machine will sadly be switched off.

Specialists who have been looking after Charlie believed his life support machine should be stopped because the proposed US treatment had no realistic chance of success and the baby was probably in constant pain and suffering.

Charlie’s parents argued that doctors had overstated the extent of their son’s condition and that he should be allowed a chance of treatment and a life.

Great Ormond Street Hospital said ” Our thoughts are with Charlie’s parents on receipt of this news which we know will be very distressing for them.

“Today’s decision by the European Court of Human Rights marks the end of what has been a very difficult process and our priority is to provide every possible support to Charlie’s parents as we prepare for the next steps.

“There will be no rush by Great Ormond Street Hospital to change Charlie’s care and any future treatment plans will involve careful planning and discussion.”

The High Court within the UK found that it was Charlie’s best interests to be allowed to die, two further appeals at the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court also upheld that it was his best interests to be allowed to die, before his parents pushed to the European Court Of Human Rights (ECHR) case to be heard.

ECHR ruled that they would not hear the case because they endorsed the substance of the approach by the domestic courts. The British courts acted meticulous through and reviewed they provided clear and extensive reasoning giving relevant and sufficient support for their conclusions.

They further concluded that on the basis of the extensive, high-quality expert evidence it was most likely that Charlie was being exposed to continued pain, suffering and distress and that by undergoing experimental treatment with no prospect of success would offer no benefit and continue to cause him significant harm.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
