Fiery 'Committing Murder': Loesch Slams UK's 'Monstrous' Treatment of Terminally Ill Baby Alfie
The Court of Appeal rejected applications by Aflie Evans' father and mother to take the boy from Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool to the Vatican’s Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital.
The toddler was taken off life support Monday after a series of court rulings backed by doctors who said further treatment was futile and the boy would most likely not get any better after suffering a seizure in December 2016.
Alfie is in a "semi-vegetative state" as a result of a degenerative neurological condition doctors have been unable to identify.
On "Fox & Friends," Loesch pointed out that the treatment in the Vatican would not cost the National Health Service (NHS) anything but pride.
"This is all about ego for the socialist healthcare system in Britain," Loesch said. "And it is absolutely monstrous that a country could murder a child as opposed to allowing their parents -- at no expense to NHS -- to take this child somewhere else to receive treatment."
A free people don’t have to beg the government for permission to save their child. #AlfieEvans

She said it's wrong for a board of "unelected bureaucrats" to have the power to determine which lives are worthy of treatment.
"This is monstrous. This country is committing murder," Loesch said. "I hope that the Pope gets involved, I hope that the Queen says something [about] the petition, because if they kill this child, the sun has set on the empire of Britain completely."
