 It is unconscionable that a court could stop a child being given available medical treatment, arranged by his parents.
 It is not a matter of whether he can be cured, but the journey he takes with his parents on this earth, while he is alive. The argument raised about being allowed to 'die peacefully' is not permitted by the courts for adults and the fact that the courts are citing this principle for a child, suggests it has nothing to do with the child's best interests, rather those of the state. 
 I find it intolerable that the hospital, the courts and the public can allow themselves the belief that they know better what is best for Alfie and that they have his best interests more at heart than his doting parents. If the parents have the means to prolong his life in another country, then this is their inalienable right to choose, and no one else should interfere.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man. To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression is truly an act of a pure heart."
