    LONDON, May 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The question of what caused the death of UK toddler Alfie Evans may never be known. The UK High Court refused today to order a post-mortem examination of the toddler’s remains at the request of a pro-life advocate. John Allman made an “urgent application” to the UK High Court in Westminster today to prevent the destruction of the late toddler’s remains without a prior post-mortem examination and toxicology report. The baby’s remains are scheduled to be interred today in a private ceremony. Alfie died at 2:30 AM on April 28th at Alder Hey Children’s...

    The very first post on this blog concerned a court case I had brought against a coroner, about an inquest into a death.  Since then, there has been a long, drawn-out court case against a council that occurred because a police officer took exception to some of the earlier posts on this blog, all of which are still here.  That case is presently in Strasbourg, awaiting a decision on admissibility. It looks as though I am not going to be able to escape from my duty, which seems now to be to bring another court case before long, this time against the...

    Last week I and others pondered aloud the very real probability that the British medical system, with the collusion of Britain's legal system and even the Roman Catholic hierarchy in that country, murdered Alfie Evans in cold blood.  They did the deed just before he attained his second birthday, which is today.  The timing of that is no coincidence.  They appeared in a hurry to have him die before he reached his second birthday, and there is a reason as explained here. "Oh, it's just a tin-foil-hat crank conspiracy website!", one may poo-poo.  If you believe that, did you search...

    ENGLAND, May 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – As a high-profile lay Catholic commentator in England, Caroline Farrow has experienced online abuse for years. Unfortunately, Farrow’s advocacy for Alfie Evans’ family has led to unprecedented levels of harassment. Not only have strangers sent her insults and threats over Twitter, they have published her address, phone number, and the name of her children’s school. Thanks to prank callers, her phone has been ringing off the hook. Last week police advised her to shut down her Twitter account for 72 hours. “It’s just crazy,” Farrow told LifeSiteNews from her home in England on Friday...

    The exotic concept of spontaneous generation was taken seriously by astute thinkers for a long time before the invention of microbiology. Of course, they knew about the proximate process of birth, but the biological source of life itself exercised such minds as Anaximander six hundred years B.C. and Saint Augustine, Shakespeare, and the philosopher of fishing Izaak Walton, and was at least a puzzle to Darwin. Spontaneous generation was the theory that living organisms could arise from inanimate matter, like fleas born from dust, or mice from salt and bees from animal blood and, in the speculation of Aristotle, scallops...

    About once a week my search for “Today in History” turns up a reminder, positive or negative, of something that pro-lifers should carefully ponder. Ninety one years ago today, in Buck v. Bell, the United States Supreme Court upheld a Virginia law that allowed the forced sterilization of people to promote the “health of the patient and the welfare of society.” Specifically, the 8-1 decision, written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes permitted an innocent woman by the name of Carrie Buck to be involuntarily sterilized. Carrie Buck’s “crime”? She was supposedly “feeble-minded.” As Social Darwinist Justice Holmes pronounced, in one...

    As the world received the terrible news of Alfie Evans' passing this morning, his Italian team of lawyers and consultants was still working tirelessly to exhaust all possible means to get him to Italy. Monica Boccardi, one of the four lawyers from Giuristi per la Vita ("Lawyers for Life"), who had been following Alfie since last July, was on Italian television a day before the infant's tragic death.    Lawyers for Life had taken the case to heart because "firstly, it isn't just a case. It's a child. A defenseless child. It's David against Goliath," she said. Boccardi also complained of "judicial harassment" by the...

    Cooperating with Evil is a Sin -- Especially When You're Wearing a Roman Collar! Is this wolf in sheep's skin wearing a roman collar? My colleague Janet at Restore DC Catholicism posted a great video on the nine ways individuals participate in the sins of others. Cooperation with evil is, in fact, evil. You don't have to commit a murder to be a party to it. The boyfriend who urges and pays for his girlfriend's abortion is every bit as guilty of killing their baby (perhaps more so) as the mother who agrees to it. The nurse who neglects a...

    Guardian ^ | May 2 | Josh Halliday
    The Christian campaign group that acted for the family of Alfie Evans could face an investigation by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the Guardian has learned. ---- The high court judge Mr Justice Hayden was particularly critical of the role of Pavel Stroilov, a Russian-born law student who appeared to have taken the lead in representing Alfie’s parents for the Christian Legal Centre (CLC). The judge described Stroilov, who formerly worked for the Ukip leader, Gerard Batten, as a “fanatical and deluded young man” whose legal advice was “inconsistent with the real interests of the parents’ case”.

    Sources close to the family of Alfie Evans are refuting a story that appeared in an Italian newspaper claiming that Alfie was given four unknown drugs just two hours before he died. Caroline Farrow, a British journalist and broadcaster who has been working closely with administrators of the Alfie Army website, informed LifeNews today that the Italian newspaper article is incorrect. Not only is the article inaccurate but administrators of Facebook page to support Alfie and his family say the claims in the article are causing more stress for Alfie’s family just days after he passed away.

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has finally weighed in on the Alfie Evans case, offering condolences to the family but ultimately siding with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. During a visit to Brooklands Primary School in Sale, Greater Manchester on Monday, May received a question as to whether she would support Alfie’s Law, legislation proposed by British Member of European Parliament Steven Woolfe to restore parental rights over medical decisions in similar cases. Alfie died Saturday at Alder Hey, which had removed his ventilator five days earlier in defiance of his parents’ wishes. Alfie’s doctors said he had an undiagnosed and...

    UK toddler Alfie Evans allegedly died within hours of receiving four different drugs from a nurse at Alder Hey hospital, Italian media is reporting. The information that Alfie was given four injections has also been obtained by LifeSiteNews from two different sources with connections to the Evans family.  Alfie Evans died in Liverpool’s Alder Hey children’s hospital on Saturday morning at 2:30 AM. According to Italian newspaper La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, a nurse entered the child’s cubicle after his father Tom had been called aside and gave him four drugs. A source close to the family told LifeSiteNews that these were...

    Alfie held up the removal of life support, but Alder Hey denied the oxygen brought to the child without permission. The baby was not fed for 36 hours and the lung infection was not treated but it was still stable, so that Thomas was convinced to have almost one foot out of the hospital that negotiated the silence of the press in exchange for more contributions vital. Just before the child was given small drugs.

    Some magazine stories are fishhooks; they work their way into your mind and don’t come out. Rachel Aviv of The New Yorker has written several such pieces in the last year, including one about an African-American mother’s battle to keep her brain-damaged daughter alive after the girl was declared clinically dead, and another about the way court-appointed legal guardians in Nevada exploit the elderly placed into their care.I’ve been thinking about both stories while watching the drama of Alfie Evans, an English almost-2-year-old with a devastating brain condition whose parents were denied the chance to move him to another hospital...

    Following the passing of the sick British toddler on Saturday, there has been international outrage and disappointment from thousands of supporters.  Alfie Evans' parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, confirmed Saturday on Facebook that their son died, saying, "Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 a.m. We are heart broken. Thank you, everyone, for all your support." The post has since been liked by more than 231,000 people.  News of Alfie's passing prompted a score of reactions, including from two members of the European Parliament (MEP) who criticized the bishops and priests of England for failing to act on behalf...

    MUNICH, Germany, April 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A leading German pediatrician is saying that the way the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) is dealing with disabled toddler Alfie Evans and his parents would never happen in his country given its history with the Nazi regime. “We have learned in Germany because of our history, that there are things that you do not do with severely disabled patients,” Professor Nikolaus Haas, head of the Child Cardiology and Pediatric Intensive Medicine Unit at Munich University Hospital, told Germany’s Die Welt newspaper in an April 26 article. “Our ethical understanding in Germany is...

This is an important message which we hope will soon reach Tom, Kate and their supporters. It is already clear from the ministrations of Fr.

    The brother of Terri Schiavo has slammed the British court system that essentially condemned Alfie Evans to death. Bobby Schindler tells LifeNews that courts should never have prevent Afie’s parents from caring for their son, who ultimately died on Saturday less than a week after doctors yanked his life support without their consent. Bobby Schindler and his family fought a losing uphill battle against the court system that decided Terri was better off dead than living as a disabled patient. He certainly understands what happens when courts and doctors say someone should die. Alfie Evans ended up dying very early...

    The main judge in the Alfie Evans case has already come under fire for the kinds of comments he made in the courtroom. Justice Hayden said that he did not want to be reminded that Alfie is a human being and told attorneys for Alfie’s family that there is supposedly nothing left of his brain. Now the judge is coming under fire for comments he made about a Christian legal group whose attorneys helped represent Alfie’s family. In the courtroom he slammed the group calling one law student who was assisting the family “deluded and fanatical.” Lawyers and others from...
