September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Court Orders Life Support Withdrawn from Sick Child

A European high court has ruled that a sick child can be taken off of life support, despite his parents’ wishes.

Ten-month old Charlie Gard was born with an extremely rare disease called infantile onset encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, known as MDDS. This disease is so rare that there are only 16 known cases in the entire world.

Since his birth, Charlie Gard has been living in the intensive-care unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. He is unable to breathe without assistance, suffers from seizures, and has severe brain damage.

Little Charlie Gard doesn’t have a very good chance of living, but his parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, were hopeful that a new treatment available in the United States may help him.

However, according to the National Review, the London hospital appealed to the court system to stop further treatment. In April, the High Court ruled in favor of the doctors and against Charlie’s parents.

When the High Court’s decision was appealed, the Appeals Court upheld it. The last court in the case, the European Court of Human Rights, also upheld the initial court’s decision.

Because of the Court’s decision, Charlie’s parents now have no say in whether he lives or dies, but that decision has instead been transferred to his doctors.

To justify the court’s decision, the judge in the ruling stated that there was no “scientific basis” to believe that Charlie would ever recover. Charlie should be allowed “to die with dignity,” he stated.

Trump seizes moral high ground in Charlie Gard case

The secret to President Trump’s remarkable outsider success is his fearless willingness to walk into the most politically fraught situations, redefine every long-held prejudice and seize the moral high ground by embracing the simplest truth.

Take little baby Charlie Gard of the United Kingdom.

The infant lies dying in a government-run hospital ward and the death panels have declared that no more shall be done to save his life.

His parents want to move heaven and earth to save their child, who doctors say has brain damage after being diagnosed with infantile-onset encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome.

A professor who testified before the U.K.’s highest death panel said the little boy’s brain, muscle and breathing ability are “severely affected,” leaving him with congenital deafness and severe epilepsy.

Charlie’s parents want to bring their child to the U.S. for experimental treatment.

But the U.K.’s top death panel has been affirmed by the so-called “European Court of Human Rights,” which is apparently some kind of international death panel that convenes in Strasbourg, France, but reserves the right to sentence children everywhere to die. (Somewhere, George Orwell is slapping his palm to his forehead for not concocting such a sinister Overlord on his own.)

In walks a swashbuckling Donald Trump, like a weary American soldier who has crossed the beaches of Normandy to once again bring a glimmer of moral hope to our lost cousins.

“If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so,” the president tweeted.

This, of course, set off yet another frenzy of controversy over presidential tweeting, the politics of abortion and, of course, just how much authority we Americans, here on Independence Day, wish to give our federal government the power to convene its own death panels.

It may be too late to save our cousins from their own suicide by death panel — but there still may be time to save America.

We have beaten unlikelier odds before.

Charlie Gard Parents Break Down in Court as Judge Calls for Another Hearing

 The strain and anguish of fighting for their terminally ill infant son was on display in a British court Monday as the parents of 11-month old Charlie Gard pled with a judge to re-consider experimental treatment. Gard's mother Connie Yates wept in frustration and his father Chris Gard yelled at a lawyer representing Great Ormond Street Hospital saying "when are you going to start telling the truth?"

Charlie Gard Has Passed Away: Parents Say Goodbye to Their 'Beautiful Boy'

 Little Charlie Gard’s fight for life is now over and he is at home with the Lord. Charlie, who suffered from a rare mitochondrial disease which resulted in brain damage, had been at the center of a controversy over the right to life and parental rights.

BBC News reports that on Friday, Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, announced the death of their “beautiful boy” after he had been taken off life support in a hospice facility.

For Gard and Yates, Charlie’s death marks the end of a long and agonizing struggle fighting for Charlie’s life.

The hospital where Charlie had been on life support, Great Ormond Street Hospital, argued that Charlie’s life support should be withdrawn because there was no hope of improvement for his condition.

Gard and Yates believed that there was a chance for improvement, however, and fought a legal battle to be able to take Charlie to the U.S. for experimental treatment. They may have been granted the permission to do so, but a recent brain scan by Dr. Michio Hirano revealed that Charlie’s condition is irreversible and there is no hope for improvement.

Earlier this week, Charlie’s parents reluctantly agreed to withdraw his life support. However, they maintain that if the hospital had allowed Charlie to receive treatment earlier, he may have recovered.

Gard and Yates also lost their final legal battle to be able to transfer Charlie from a government-run facility to the care of a personal doctor as he lived out his last hours of life.

On Monday, after they made the difficult decision to withdraw Charlie’s life support, Gard said:

"Mummy and Daddy love you so much Charlie, we always have and we always will and we are so sorry that we couldn't save you. We had the chance but we weren't allowed to give you that chance. Sweet dreams baby. Sleep tight our beautiful little boy."
