Update from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital: It Is in Baby Alfie’s Best Interest That He Die
Baby Alfie is not dead.
He was taken off of life support earlier this week.
British doctors will not allow him to leave their hospital while they kill him.
On Friday Alder Hey Children’s Hospital released a statement on Baby Alfie’s condition.
The hospital reminded its critics that the High Court again has ruled it is in Baby Alfie’s best interest to die.

Meanwhile a Polish doctor says that Baby Alfie is not dying.
Lifesite News reported:
A Polish doctor has stated that UK toddler Alfie Evans is not “dying” and is certainly not “brain-dead.”
Dr. Izabela Pałgan, a pediatrician and children’s oncologist from Bydgoszcz in Poland, told Radio Wnet April 25 that in her professional opinion, doctors at Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool where Alfie is being kept are misdiagnosing the boy.
“Doctors at the hospital in Liverpool asked the court to agree to the separation of the infant from life-support, on the grounds that it would be in the ‘best interests’ of the child. The infant is not a dying child. He is not brain-dead,” she said, as reported by Polish news portal Fronda.pl.
Pałgan said that Alfie’s brain scans do not show that he is in a “terminal state.” They do not, for example, show the state of his brain stem, she said.
“The child reacts to the voice of his father, he periodically opens his eyes, he tightens his mouth around his soother. The parents insist that he is making contact with them,” she added.
