The High Court on Wednesday ruled that 11-month-old Charlie would be transferred to a hospice where he would be taken off the life support system. Doctors at the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London said it was not in Charlie’s best interest to keep him alive in a hospice for a long time.

The decision comes after the terminally ill baby's parents announced their decision to withdraw a legal battle against the hospital that had been going around for months. His parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, requested the court for a private team for their son so they could spend his final days in peace. They also asked for some more time with their son but said they were denied this 'final wish,' the BBC reported.

In an emotional Facebook post, Charlie’s mother, Connie Yates requested people to help her find a pediatric intensive care consultant who can assist in taking care of her son during his time in the hospice.

In a statement released July 27, a representative for the hospital said: “We deeply regret that profound and heartfelt differences between Charlie’s doctors and his parents have had to be played out in court over such a protracted period. It has been a uniquely painful and distressing process for all concerned. Charlie’s parents have tirelessly advocated for what they sincerely believed was right for their son, and nobody could fault them for doing so.”

“Sadly, as the judge has now ruled, there is simply no way that Charlie, a patient with such severe and complex needs, can spend any significant time outside of an intensive care environment safely. The risk of an unplanned and chaotic end to Charlie’s life is an unthinkable outcome for all concerned and would rob his parents of precious last moments with him,” the statement added.

Responding to the court's decision, Yates said: "We just want some peace with our son, no hospital, no lawyers, no courts, no media just quality time with Charlie away from everything to say goodbye to him in the most loving way. Most people won't ever have to go through what we have been through, we've had no control over our son's life and no control over our son's death," according to a Daily Mail report.

Charlie suffers from a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome which causes organ dysfunction, muscle weakness and the loss of ability to eat, walk, talk and even breathe.
