UK Court Rules to End the Life of 2-Year-Old

(The Yeshiva World) – The Fixler family lost its appeal to the UK’s High Court to prevent the withdrawal of life support from 2-year-old Alta and bring her to Israel, UK media outlets reported.

The High Court ruled on Friday that an earlier court decision to provide palliative care only must be upheld.

“I know that Alta’s devoted parents will be profoundly distressed by the outcome of this appeal,” Lord Justice Baker wrote. “Every parent and grandparent – indeed every person – from every community will have the deepest sympathy for them, and for Alta’s loving sibling.” CONTINUE
