Archie’s vital devices will likely be turned off soon. But where that will happen is still a matter for the British courts.

(dpa) – Despite another defeat in court, the parents of the terminally ill Archie in England do not want to give up and continue to fight for the transfer of their son to a hospice. The family and their supporters filed an application with the Court of Appeal on Friday, after the High Court ruled against the 12-year-old being transferred from hospital to a hospice to die.



Against the will of the parents, the twelve-year-old is supposed to die in a hospital.


The High Court agreed with the doctors’ assessment that the boy was too unstable to be transported to the hospice. It was in Archie’s best interest that life support be removed at the hospital rather than in another setting, the judge said. The parents have now appealed.

In their “fight to the bitter end”, the family of the twelve-year-old is supported by the conservative non-profit organization Christian Concern, which provides legal assistance in selected cases and speaks out against the recognition of homosexuality and transsexuality.

The legal tug-of-war in the Archie case was even an issue in the Vatican. An opinion piece appeared on the official Vatican platform “Vatican News” arguing against the shutdown of the devices in the Archie case. A society must protect life – and also the weak and fragile – it says.
