Alfie Evans - Should the State get to decide when someone dies? - Spokane FAVS Commentary


In my latest piece, I take a look at the tragic case of Alfie Evans, a young child from England who became the center of a legal battle between the hospital, the State, and his parents. When I wrote this, Alfie was still alive and fighting. I'd be lying if that statement didn't bring a pang of guilt to my heart, as I intended to write about his case much sooner than I had. It was only the next morning  after submitting my article to Spokane Faith and Values, that my wondeful editor informed me that Alfie had indeed passed away. This young warrior is now free of his mortal frame and in the loving arms of his eternal Heavenly Father.
