Britain’s second highest court says Alfie Evans’s ventilator can be shut off

Alfie Evans and his dad Tom Evans
After a three judge Court of Appeal today upheld a judge’s ruling that critically ill Alfie Evans’s ventilator can be turned off, Lord Justices McFarlane and McCombe and Lady Justice King told his parents that they have until March 8 at 4pm to appeal their decision.

If that same Court of Appeal denies their appeal, Tom Evans’ and Kate James’ last resort would be to directly apply to the Supreme Court.

Evans and James had appealed the decision by Mr. Justice Hayden who concurred with Alder Hey Hospital in Birmingham, England, that turning off Alfie’s life support was in his “best interests.”
