Baby Alfie Dies at UK Hospital – He Was 23 Months Old
Baby Alfie passed away this morning at 2:30 AM.
He was taken off of life support earlier this week.
British doctors would not allow him to leave their hospital to seek help in Italy.
The High Court ruled it was in Baby Alfie’s best interest to be taken off of life support.
The baby died four days later.
Lifesite News reported:
Alfie Evans died today in a Liverpool children’s hospital at 2:30 a.m. local time.
Despite last-minute interventions, including the Italian government’s gift of citizenship to the infant, the child died four days after doctors at the Alder Hey NHS (National Health Service) Foundation ignored his parents’ wishes and removed him from a ventilator.
His mother Kate James informed well-wishers of the boy’s death by posting a message on the “Alfie’s Army Official” Facebook page.
“Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am,” the young mother wrote. “We are heart broken. Thank you everyone for all your support.”
“My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30… absolutely heartbroken… I LOVE YOU MY GUY,” Thomas Evans said.
Alfie James Evans was a baptized Catholic, like his father. His mother belongs to the Reformed tradition. If a baptized child before the age of reason dies, he goes straight to heaven, according to Catholic teaching.
Governor Mike Huckabee tweeted:
Up at 3am for early flight and learned that little Alfie Evans had died. Maybe he would have even if UK govt had allowed his parents to take their own child to Italy to seek other treatment, but we’ll never know. Alfie is dead. Govt is not God.
