UK Judge Rules Baby Must Die

A one-year-old in a comatose state will be taken off of life support despite the parents wishes. Doctors said recovery was unrealistic and a judge agreed.


Mr Justice Hedley said the one-year-old was comatose after a "catastrophic accident" and it was "unrealistic" to think his condition would ever improve.

He acknowledged that the baby's mother and father believed "where there's life there's hope" and that their faith compelled them to resist switching off their son's ventilator.
