    Parental Rights - A Reality Check

    Thankfully, few couples find themselves facing the horrendous plight of baby Charlie Gard's parents.

    Theirs is [literally] a "life or death" situation!

    Here, then, is an update on the legal implications involved:

    It really is a heartbreaking situation but what happens to the child when the parents are no longer able to look after him?

    In all cases a court can overrule parents.

    I understand parents would want to keep their child alive as long as possible, as indeed anyone would want to do for a loved one, but there comes a time when the opinion of medically qualified people out-weighs the parents' irrational wishes.

    I see the parents have just withdrawn the application.

    Now maybe the poor little boy will be allowed to pass away peacefully as the medical opinion has been for so long.
