On Sunday April 22th, Archbishop Paglia, as President of the Pontifical Academy for Life, has issued a statement about Alfie Evans' situation.
“The dramatic story of Alfie Evans continues to have great emotional impact. Considering the developments we are witnessing, we cannot help but feel strong discomfort, as though we are heading down a blind alley where all risk being defeated.
Considering all the difficulties and possible solutions being considered as circumstances progress, we believe it is very important that everyone work together in the most collaborative way possible.
Only by seeking agreement between all parties – a loving alliance of parents, relatives, and medical team – will it be possible to reach the best solution for helping baby Alfie in this dramatic moment of his life.”
