To the President of The United States,
I'm drawing attention to you Mr. President of United States of America in the case of 23 month old Alfie Evans. The Supreme Court in the United Kingdom has decided that Alder Hey Children’s Hospital can remove Alfie Evan’s life support without the consent of his parents 21 year old Thomas Evans and 20 year old Kate James. According to Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool England, they consider Alfie to be in a "semi-vegetative state" and has a "degenerative neurological condition" which doctors haven't definitively diagnosed. As early as February 2017, Alder Hey showed signs that they had given up, and now have rejected doing a standard life-enhancing tracheotomy or even release him to another hospital for an appropriate diagnosis. The hospital has appealed to the High Court to remove parental rights from Thomas Evans and Kate James and removing ventilation to end Alfie’s life.
Thomas Evans has fought courageously, continuously and tirelessly for his son's rights and has been working nonstop, exploring every legal avenue necessary, fighting to save his son's life. Alder Hey has refused to look at new evidence in regards to the progress that little Alfie has continued to make, and are refusing the basic rights of Alfie to be cared for at another hospital in Rome Italy who is ready to help Alfie move forward, get tracheotomy and PEG tube and get off heavy sedation to try to diagnose and treat him. His parents had been told several times by outside doctors that Alfie can ultimately be able to go home with a tracheotomy and a direct stomach tube (PEG).
On April 18, 2018, Thomas Evans traveled to Rome and met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. He was assured there that the Vatican hospital is “ready to take Alfie immediately” and provide the care and treatment noting: “The President of Bambino Gesú called me in for a meeting. She wants to take Alfie as soon as tomorrow and will do everything for him.” Pope Francis in support of Alfie voiced that; "The only master of life is God. Our duty is to do everything to protect life". Later on the Pope tweeted; “It is my sincere hope that everything necessary may be done in order to continue compassionately accompanying little Alfie Evans, and that the deep suffering of his parents may be heard. I am praying for Alfie, for his family and for all who are involved.”
Thomas Evans released in a statement; "We just wanted to take our son to give him the chance he deserves....Our child is sick, but not dying and does not deserve to die. He is not terminally ill nor diagnosed. We have been trying our best to find out his condition to treat or manage it.”
Two days prior on April 16, 2018, Wajid Khan an M.E.P gave a powerful speech to the European Parliament where he said; "I hope a solution can be found with Alfie's best interests at heart. One that respects the love that his parents have for him as well as the dignity and sanctity of his life. As an M.E.P, there's frustrating little I can do for him but as a parent I stand in solidity with Tom and Kate in this difficult time. Like millions of others, I'm also praying for the beautiful strong and courageous Alfie."
We ask you to urgently look into this story as it resonates with millions of parents around the world that would do whatever it takes to save the life of their child(ren). Please help be his voice, review all the evidence, speak with the parents, help them give Alfie the chance of life he deserves.
