Leslie Talks to ABC Radio about Who Decides in the sad case of #CharlieGard

The conflict surrounding the short life of Charlie Gard is a classical ethical dilemma where all paths have arguments for and against. What is right for Charlie’s parents to do, for the medical team to advocate for and the Courts to decide? What are the medical facts and why do they matter in contested cases about the best interest of the child?
