Here is an essay by a psychology professor, Dr. Joseph J. Horton, about the well-known case of 11-month old Charlie Gard in a London hospital and a severely burned 11 year-old boy from South America who is now undergoing painful treatments in the USA.
The European Court in Brussels failed to overturn the British Supreme Court’s ruling allowing hospital doctors and administrators to disconnect Charlie from a ventilator because it might be causing him pain (and allow him to die), rather than allow Charlie to be treated by an experimental method in America.
Dr. Horton’s thoughtful article comparing the two cases is worth reading. Click on the link to read it.
