Judge Strikes Down Appeal For Alfie Evans' Life

The 23-month-old's parents shared this image on Facebook today of the toddler in hospital

In further accusations, Alfie's mother was allegedly asked to leave Alfie's bedside after she questioned hospital visiting rules with supporters, known as Alfie's Army, tweeting on Friday: "Alfie's mummy's been told to leave Alfie's side and removed from the ward for asking the nurse is it acceptable for family members now being told they can not see Alfie".

Save Alfie Evans! Tell the hospital to let his parents take him home.

The protest followed a protracted legal battle over the future of Alfie.

The parents say that their 23-month-old son is not receiving the care and treatment that he needs.

She continued: "Alder Hey is an absolutely fantastic hospital and the staff are second to none; this should not be happening outside a children's hospital".

"So our understanding is that he should be allowed to leave the hospital", he added.

She said she respects people's right to protest peacefully but described Sunday's demonstration as "out of control" and akin to a "circus" with "a bouncy castle, people drinking alcohol, [and] children running everywhere". They wanted to take him to Italy for medical treatment.

Last week, Mr Justice Hayden endorsed a detailed plan put forward by Alder Hey doctors for withdrawing life-support treatment, after considering a number of issues at a follow-up High Court hearing.

A lawyer representing the parents on Monday returned to the Court of Appeal to ask judges to rule that Alfie should be allowed to travel to a foreign hospital. The court stayed the removal of Alfie's life support, pending the decision of the Supreme Court.

Alfie, born in May of 2016, suffers from an unknown neurological degenerative condition which hospital staff say has reduced him to a vegetative state and corroded his brain matter. They want to move Alfie to a hospital in Rome.

The couple, from Liverpool, have already lost fights in the High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights.

Alfie's Army - as supporters call themselves - says on its official Facebook page protests are peaceful and has asked demonstrators to be "respectful". The hospital issued a statement asking the protesters to lower the volume of their demonstrations and to stop honking their vehicle horns since it was disturbing some of the patients, according to The Guardian.

"Loud and constant noise, such as from vehicle horns, affects sleep and raises anxiety levels for our patients, especially when recovering from procedures, so please bear them in mind".

Mr. Evans told the crowd of hundreds on Thursday night that he had the "legal" right to remove his son from the care of Alder Hey and transport him to Bambino Gesù.
