A three-judge panel in Britain on Wednesday rejected an appeal by the parents of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans. The Court of Appeal upheld a Tuesday High Court decision denying Tom Evans and Kate James, Alfie’s parents, the right to transfer the toddler to a children’s hospital in Rome for further treatment. Judge Andrew McFarlane said nothing had changed since the court ruled life support should end. Doctors at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool on Monday discontinued life support for Alfie, who has a degenerative neurological condition.
