Polish Gov’t Intervenes on Behalf of its Citizen in ‘Vegetative State’

(LifeSiteNews) — A Polish patient in England resumed receiving life-sustaining treatment after his birth family and the Polish government made applications to the British court and to the European Court of Human Rights.

The patient, known only as “RS” or “P,” resumed nutrition and hydration on December 28. He is able to breathe on his own.

Today Mr Justice Cohen allowed a continued stay of his order to discontinue treatment to the patient, originally made on December 15, until January 7 at 4:00 p.m., in the expectation that the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) will have by then addressed the current application regarding the patient’s case.

This means that RS will continue receiving hydration and nutrition through tubes until that hour. CONTINUE
