The mother of a critically ill baby expressed hope on Monday that a court would allow her son to travel from Britain to the United States for treatment after his case was given prominence by President Donald Trump and the Pope. He could be my child, or your child, or any one of us.

Peter's words come as it was revealed Chris and Connie have asked a High Court judge to carry out a fresh analysis of son Charlie's case, after judges in France refused to intervene. They raised the funds required to do so through an online crowdfunding campaign.

Trent FranksTrent FranksHouse Republicans to offer bill to help parents of critically ill British child Lawmakers consider new security funding in wake of shooting GOP senators pleased with Ivanka Trump meeting on family leave, child tax credits MORE (R-Ariz.) and Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) said they are proposing legislation to grant Gard's parents lawful permanent US status so they can "pursue their best hope for Charlie".

"The goal of government is to protect innocent human life".

Courts have preciously denied Parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard the right to send Charlie to the U.S. on the grounds it would prolong his suffering.

The British courts allowed the Great Ormond Street Hospital to turn off the baby's life support machine after it cited that Charlie's health was terminal and deteriorating. They said he was diagnosed with mitochondrial depletion syndrome when he was 9 months old.

Now, a High Court British judge has told Charlie's parents they have until Wednesday afternoon to submit "new and powerful evidence" that shows their son should be kept on life support to receive experimental treatment, possibly in the United States or in Italy.

But the boy's parents fought the ruling. However, a lawyer for the United Kingdom hospital said during the proceedings there was "nothing that could be called new evidence", according to The Guardian.

They are proposing giving Charlie a three-month trial to see if he responds. "I will be the first to welcome that outcome", Francis told Gard's lawyers. The brain damage Charlie has already suffered is irreversible, meaning even on the off-chance the experimental treatment extends his life, the little boy will remain blind, deaf, unable to breathe on his own and unable to move.

But doctors familiar with his case haven't been so optimistic. "This is outrageous. The decision on Charlie's medical future should not be in the hands of a court".

Who will care for Charlie if he does have treatment?

It is not known if the man was connected with the Charlie Gard protest which was taking place in the Strand at the time.
