March for Life Statement on Charlie Gard


“Charlie Gard’s medical condition is heart-breaking but the situation has been significantly worsened because his parents have not been able to, in the words of Pope Francis, “treat and accompany” their little baby as they wish. As the court reconsiders this case, we hope and pray that the Judge will make the right decision and allow Charlie’s parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, to seek alternative medical treatment on behalf of their child. Every life is a gift, including Charlie’s, and we continue to hope and pray for a miracle of healing as well as freedom for his loving parents care for their son in the way they deem best.”
