There is an urgent matter on the desk of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson today. A two-year-old girl named Alta Fixsler, an Israeli citizen residing in the U.K., was born with a severe brain condition, and her parents have sought every recourse they could for her care. Tragically, against her parents’ wishes, Alta’s doctors at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH) have decided to remove the little girl from life support against her family’s will. Her parents have made arrangements to have her moved to Israel, and the government of Israel and two different Israeli hospitals support Alta’s parents in the matter and have agreed to care for her. However, RMCH has petitioned a judge of the British High Court to disconnect her life support, and their motion has been granted against her parents’ and the Israeli government’s wishes. The Israeli Minister of Health has now petitioned the U.K. Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to permit Alta to be transferred to Israel.
