Judge demands ‘drastic’ evidence or he’ll force Charlie Gard off life support this week
At a preliminary hearing today, a UK judge agreed to hear new evidence in Charlie Gard's case on Thursday. His parents have 48 hours – until 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday – to provide this evidence to the court.
After worldwide outcry, including from Pope Francis and President Trump, Great Ormond Street Hospital asked the High Court to reconsider "fresh evidence" in the case. However, it maintains its stance that Charlie should be removed from life support against his parents' wishes.
