Farage: ‘I Am Disgusted’ at the Way Charlie Gard’s Parents Have Been Treated
FARAGE: "A far bigger question is even for poor little Charlie Gard, who won't make his first birthday, even bigger then the pain of those parents who as I said I know and they are lovely people, the state in this country said, you are not allowed to take your child to the U.S.A. to try this revolutionary treatment that may or may not work. The state. Surely the parents should decide the ultimate fate of their child. Parents of sound mind are not the state. And even today, even when we've passed the last moment, the hospital and the state are saying to these poor parents, 'Oh, no, no, Charlie cannot die at home. He'll have to die in our hospital.' So this raises some very big libertarian questions about the rights of parents against the state. And frankly I have to tell you, I am dis -- I am -- I am disgusted at the way these parents have been treated."
