Let's Give a Brisih Citizen Medical Care

The mother of the critically ill baby Charlie Gard has called for permission to take him to the US for experimental treatment because “there’s nothing to lose”.


[Father Chris] Gard said the hospital was fantastic and its doctors were specialists in a lot of conditions, but not Charlie’s. “The specialists are in America and that’s where we want to go,” Gard said.


Acknowledging the treatment only had a 10% chance of working, [mother Connie] Yates said it was worth trying anyway. “He’s our son, he’s our flesh and blood. We feel that it should be our right as parents to decide to give him a chance at life. There is nothing to lose, he deserves a chance.”


The couple spoke after two congressmen said Charlie should be given residency in the US so he can receive the treatment in the country.


The Republican congressmen Brad Wenstrup and Trent Franks are expected to table a bill in the US House of Representatives on Monday to bring Charlie and his parents to the US.

In a joint statement, the US politicians said: “Our bill will support Charlie’s parents’ right to choose what is best for their son, by making Charlie a lawful permanent resident in the US in order for him to receive treatments that could save his life.

You Americans with no money but looking for medical treatment - fuck you.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
