The Case of Charlie Gard, and Why We Must Always Err on the Side of Compassion

Charlie Gard Compassion

Charlie Gard, an 11-month old infant, has captured the attention of the world. He was born with an extremely rare degenerative genetic disease, and is currently unable to see, breathe, or move on his own. Doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital—arguably one of the best pediatric centers in the world—have treated Charlie since his diagnosis with Mitochondrial DNA Depletion Syndrome when he was just one month old. But now, his doctors say that his disease has progressed to the point that there is no hope for future survival with any quality of life. The medical team brought in doctors from Barcelona, Spain, who came to the same conclusion.

However, Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Constance Yates, disagree with the doctor’s assessment. In December, desperate to help their child, they found a pediatric neurologist and hospital in the United States who were willing to allow Charlie to undergo an experimental treatment, called nucleoside bypass therapy, which they believe could slow the progression of the disease. His parents created a GoFundMe page to raise the money needed for transportation and medical costs, and as of this writing, have raised £1,322,320 ($1,715,000) for his care. All appeared to be going as planned, until the court denied Charlie’s parents the right to remove him from the hospital and transport him to the U.S. for care.

Raising a family comes with great joys and great challenges, and doing things differently from the majority can both add to these joys and challenges. Vegan parenting is rewarding on so many levels, but it can also bring about social challenges that non-vegan families do not have to face or consider on a regular basis. Also, it brings about certain personal beliefs and preferences that other family members and friends may not understand.

When my husband and I decided to adopt a vegan lifestyle, it was a natural decision that our children would be raised the same way.

Primal Loss Divorce Book Review Cover

This morning I read what I think the best book review on divorce, written by Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington. The review is titled "The Carnage of Divorce" and reviews Leila Miller's book called Primal Loss: The New Adult Children of Divorce Speak. I am not divorced. I am a man who has a loving wife and three children, but this book review spoke so much to my heart that I want to share it with eMaxHealth raders so that those who have gone through a divorce may try to find ways to restore their families and those who have strong families further strengthen them and never seek divorce, but reconciliation when differences arise.
