All legal possibilities to keep Archie Battersbee alive had been exhausted.

Archie Battersbee’s parents are engaged in a lengthy court struggle regarding the cessation of his treatment. When this failed, they changed their emphasis to attempting to relocate their kid to a hospice.

His family had been informed that Archie Battersbee’s life support was scheduled to be withdrawn at 10 a.m. today.

Hollie Dance, the mother of the 12-year-old, told that the hospital “has made it quite obvious that we have no other options.”

Now that all legal options have been explored, she stated, “I’ve done everything I promised my son I would do.”

Archie has been in a coma since April when he was discovered unconscious. His mother discovered him with a ligature around his neck, and she believes he was taking part in a misguided online challenge.

The kid is being kept alive at the Royal London Hospital by a mix of medical treatments, including ventilation and medication treatment, according to doctors who have treated him for the previous four months.

His parents had waged a lengthy legal battle over the discontinuation of this therapy, and yesterday they suffered a double setback in their final effort to get him transferred to a hospice.

The family had filed an appeal with the Court of Appeals, contesting the decision that halted these preparations.

Last night about 6.30 p.m., the Court of Appeals confirmed that permission to appeal had been denied.

The family subsequently appealed the verdict to the European Court of Human Rights, but the court declined to interfere.

“The family is distraught and spending valuable time with Archie,” said a spokesperson for the advocacy group Christian Concern, which supported their case.

“Important and unforeseen” dangers with hospice relocation

Hollie Dance, Archie’s mother, stated that she desired for her son to “spend his dying moments” with family in privacy, but the High Court found that the move was not in Archie’s best interests, citing “substantial and unforeseen hazards.”

She told, “I understand why some people reach a point where they decide enough is enough, but I believe that where there is hope, there is life, and I see that with Archie.”

I continue to trust in my heart and my instinct that Archie will prevail.

His parents acknowledged the risks associated with the move, with medical personnel warning that Archie could die en route to the hospice, but told the court they were willing to incur these chances rather than keep him in the hospital.

Initially, the family fought for the continuation of his life support therapy in the hope that he would recover.

Ms. Dance stated, “As a parent, I want to know that I did everything in my ability to ensure that I tried my hardest for my son.”

Regarding the court’s verdict, she stated, “I wouldn’t say I’ve accepted it, and I don’t believe I ever will.

“It’s been quite difficult. Despite my tough exterior and appearance in front of the cameras, I’ve been rather broken up till now.”
