PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Archie Battersbee’s parents CAN appeal a High Court ruling to switch off the 12-year-old’s life support. Mrs Justice Arbuthnot recently ruled that doctors could lawfully stop providing treatment to Archie Battersbee after considering evidence at a trial in the Family Division of the High Court in London. Archie's parents, Hollie Dance and Paul Battersbee, from Southend, Essex, want Court of Appeal judges to consider the case. Mrs Justice Arbuthnot on Monday gave Ms Dance and Mr Battersbee permission to take the case to the Court of Appeal. Archie's parents are being supported by a campaign organisation called the Christian Legal Centre. Andrea Williams, chief executive of the centre said after Mrs Justice Arbuthnot's appeal decision: "A ruling that says death can be declared on the balance of probabilities sets a troubling precedent for our society and must be appealed.

. "Archie's parents believe that the time and manner of his death should be determined by God and claim a right to pray for a miracle until and unless that happens. That belief must be respected. "The ideology of 'dignity in death', meaning a planned time of death as fixed and carried out by the doctors, should not be brutally imposed on families who do not believe in it. "We will continue to stand with the family as they appeal the ruling and continue to pray for a miracle."
