Charlie Gard’s Parents Drop Bid in Bringing Child Home before His Passing

Socialized medicine “wins” in the United Kingdom: The parents of Charlie Gard, a child who suffers from a rare genetic condition, have given up their bid [1] to move their child to their home to let him pass away in peace and at home.

The hospital insisted that they could not accommodate the parents’ request with a staff member needing to be present with the family and child, along with the inaccessibility of equipment.

It appears that socialized medicine did “win”, where the desires of a nationalized government health care system won out when pitted against the wishes of family members.
