The British government has no involvement with the case of Charlie Gard

Irresponsible: Rachel Johnson slams Trump for going against the advice of British medics on the sad case of Charlie Gard

Connie Yates was speaking at a protest outside a London hospital, where supporters were delivering a petition of more than 350,000 signatures, calling for the 11-month-old to travel to the US.

His comments come after two United States congressmen who offered the parents a U.S. resident status, in a bid to allow them to travel there for experimental treatment.

Unless the next hearing produces a change, previous court decisions bar the hospital from allowing Charlie to be taken elsewhere for treatment.

The degenerative genetic condition affects the cells responsible for energy production and respiration, leaving Charlie unable to move or breathe without a ventilator.

On June 30, the European Court of Human Rights decided that Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children can discontinue life support to the baby.

"If he's still fighting, we're still fighting", she said.

Great Ormond Street Hospital's statement was the latest twist in a case that has raised hard bioethical and legal questions, and has caught the attention of Pope Francis and United States President Donald Trump.

In an abrupt shift, a London hospital said that it would reconsider its decision to turn off life support for Charlie Gard, a brain-damaged and terminally ill British infant, in the light of "fresh evidence" about a potential treatment.

Reps. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said Friday they would introduce a bill to bring the family to America - days after a European court ruled little Charlie should be taken off life support, and multiple worldwide hospitals offered to take him in.

The government of Hungary, where Morva is a dual citizen, and the European Union have also urged the governor to intervene. The following day Sutphin, who was searching for the escaped inmate, was fatally shot in the back of his head.

Along with Charlie's father Chris Gard, she had earlier vowed that the fight for their baby to receive experimental treatment was "not over".

"We believe, in common with Charlie's parents, it is right to explore this evidence", Great Ormond Street Hospital said in a statement Friday.

Ms Yates added: "If he's still fighting, we're still fighting".

The Vatican's Bambino Gesu hospital has also offered to treat Charlie.

It comes ahead of a fresh hearing of Charlie's case in the High Court on Monday. Charlie will die from his illness, his doctors have said.

"Our doctors have explored every medical treatment, including experimental nucleoside therapies".

Meanwhile, U.S. Representatives Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) and Trent Franks (R-AZ) have offered legislation to grant citizenship to Charlie so he can come to the U.S. for experimental treatment.

Charlie's parents are protesting the decision by Great Ormond Street Hospital to turn down their request to bring him to the USA for treatment. The British hospital treating a terminally ill baby boy said on July 7, 2017 it would examine claims that he could be treated after US President Donald Trump and Pope Francis drew global attention to the case.

"Although the President himself has not spoken to the family, he does not want to pressure them in any way, members of the administration have spoken to the family in calls facilitated by the British government", a White House spokeswoman told the Daily News on Monday.
