Charlie, The Courts, And You

Dear Jerry,

The life of Charlie Gard is still on the line.

Get latest on Charlie -- and how it impacts you -- in this new podcast episode: https://40daysforlife.com/2017/07/18/podcast-80/?inf_contact_key=d9e7e2e388850ef9fd12162360220a1adbeefad1d7abc6226e94b7e56a5778e3

Charlie is the seriously ill 11-month-old British boy at the center of a major controversy in London. His parents want to take him to the United States for treatment, but thus far, the hospital where he's staying -- and the courts -- are refusing to let his parents move him.

The story has implications for all aspects of the pro-life movement, as well as serious concerns regarding parental rights and responsibilities.

That's a topic that Matt Britton, 40 Days for Life's board chair and general counsel, discusses with me and our international campaign director Robert Colquhoun on the latest edition of the 40 Days for Life podcast:

Deeply troubling statements have been made in regard to Charlie -- that since he will never be a "normal" boy, it's "in his best interest" that life support be discontinued. An "ethics expert" even says there are situations in which a sick person is better off dead!

We also look at some of the history of the case ... and where precedents set here could have a negative aspect in other applications.

If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check out the video that Matt and I recorded with 40 Days for Life board member Haywood Robinson, M.D. We're outside the hospital in London where Charlie is being treated.

Dr. Robinson -- who once performed abortions early in his medical career -- has a unique perspective that you won't want to miss.

Please keep Charlie and his parents in your prayers ... and never hesitate to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.

For life,
Shawn Carney
President, 40 Days for Life
