I said exactly that at the time of the death of Charlie Gard and repeat it again now as little Alfie Evans battles for life.

The father of terminally ill toddler Alfie Evans said Thursday that he would work with doctors to give his son "dignity and comfort", as he called for a truce in a divisive case that has pitted doctors and the British courts against Alfie's parents, Christian groups and the pope.

On Wednesday, he and Alfie's mother Kate James, 20, failed in an 11th-hour attempt to take the 23-month-old to a foreign hospital for treatment.

He accused doctors at the hospital of being "wrong" about their diagnosis: "Alfie lives, comfortably, happily, without ventilation, without any form of ventilation".

He spoke after an intense few days involving a series of unsuccessful appeals to... Staff members did hydrate the child, but not much else.

Parents' rights should neither be ignored nor dismissed as irrelevant by hospitals and courts, who believe they know best and have the power, money and resources to overwhelm families who simply want to save their child. "It's time for Alfie's Law", Woolfe said, according to Express.

Mr Evans added: "All I ask for now is for this meeting to be a positive one, and I hope to have Alfie, on the terms of mine and Alder Hey, to be home within a day or two".

Alfie Evans has a rare, degenerative disease and has been in a semi-vegetative state for more than a year.

The NHS and Alder Hey's hospital medical staff said that Evans' condition is irreversible and that he should be taken off life support.

Alfie's case has drawn global attention, with officials in largely Catholic Poland and Italy implicitly criticizing Britain's courts and state-run National Health Service.

Poland's President Andrzej Duda tweeted on Wednesday that "Alfie Evans must be saved". "Alfie, we pray for you and your recovery!"

Pope Francis has appealed for the boy's parents' wishes to be heeded, saying only God can decide who dies.

Italy put a military plane on standby to transport Alfie to Rome if the courts allowed it and granted the boy Italian citizenship to facilitate his arrival and transport.
