Bill O’Reilly: The Charlie Gard case is about government power

A U.S. doctor is heading to the U.K. next week to examine 11-month-old Charlie Gard, who has been diagnosed as terminally ill and ordered to die by a European court because of his rare genetic condition.

Charlie, who is believed to have mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, can’t respond, move or even breath on his own. The hospital wants to take him off of life support on their own time and refuses even to let him go home for what would be his last few hours. His parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, want to take him to the U.S. for a last-ditch effort to try to help him, but they have been blocked by British courts and the European Court of Human Rights.

After a global backlash to the story, a British judge has agreed to hear evidence that taking Charlie to the U.S. for experimental treatment has a chance of helping to improve his condition.

Charlie’s case isn’t just about his tragic medical condition. “It’s about power, it’s about euthanasia, it’s about abortion on demand, and the far left, the progressive left does not want those things questioned,” Bill O’Reilly said on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

In an Orwellian statement, the hospital has said that "a world where only parents speak and decide for children and where children have no separate identity or rights and no court to hear and protect them is far from the world in which [Great Ormond Street Hospital ] treats its child patients."
