[Comment] Is it in Charlie Gard’s best interest to die?

On April 11, 2017, the High Court in London, UK, ruled that it is in Charlie Gard’s best interests to stop treatment and die. High Court Judge Mr Justice Francis explained: “although the parents have parental responsibility, overriding control is vested in the court exercising its independent and objective judgment in the child’s best interests”.1 9-month-old Charlie Gard has mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome and the court ruling, which is being challenged by his parents,2 allows withdrawal of life-support treatment.
