Family of British comatose boy want him moved to hospice:


The family of a comatose boy that has fought to prevent doctors from ending his life-support treatment has filed legal action requesting permission to move him from a London hospital to a hospice. Archie Battersbee’s parents announced the move after the European Court of Human Rights rejected a request to intervene in the case following rulings by British courts that backed doctors who said further treatment was not in the 12-year-old’s best interests because he is brain dead.
