March for Life Statement on Charlie Gard

 

“In wake of today’s announcement, our hearts go out to Connie Yates and Chris Gard, the courageous parents of little Charlie Gard. Connie and Chris were forced to make the agonizing decision to end the legal battle for Charlie’s life, after this court-instigated eight-month process prevented him from receiving the life-affirming treatment he rightly deserved. It is our hope that Charlie’s family know that the global outpouring of love and support exhibited during his fight remains as steadfast ever as they say goodbye to their son. We continue to stand with Charlie, and with those just like him around the world, in hopes that no parent ever be denied the right to choose the gift of life for their child again.”
