Two contradictory statements from Tom Evans, devoted Catholic father of Alfie Evans! The first yesterday was reported on the Torch of the Faith which has been giving constant updates on the the latest developments in the Alfie Evans case for months:
The Sleep of the Just and the Miracle on the Mersey – Plus – Tom Evans Makes Urgent Appeal to Pope Francis: Come to Liverpool!
Update at 14:09 – Amid appalling response from Liverpool’s Archbishop, Thomas Evans calls on Pope Francis to visit Liverpool: ”Come here and see how my son is the hostage of this hospital. What we are enduring is not right.”
Many of you will have read my three increasingly desperate and heartfelt appeals to Archbishop Malcolm McMahon on Monday. As it became clear that Alfie was not receiving nourishment, oxygen or even much water, even though he was breathing successfully for so many hours, I basically begged His Grace to do something to intervene.
Well, I see now that, in the leftist Tablet, he came out strongly yesterday.
Erm, in defence of Alder Hey and the judiciary…
The second statement from Tom Evans makes us wonder whether it was written by the hospital! Have they blackmailed him into making this announcement below or threatened him they will not even consider giving permission to take Alfie home unless he reads it out in public? This appears to be the case:
Tom Evans Tells Supporters to Stand Down: Did Alder Hey refuse to discuss a home plan until he gave this press conference?
Tom Evans’ statement sounds like it was written by the hospital.
Is the family now under a gag order with the threat that Alfie will NEVER go home unless they agree to shut up and adopt the “end of life plan?” This announcement comes almost immediately after he discussed how badly they’ve been treated by the staff at Alder Hey. What a flip!
As the shroud of silence descends, it makes me think of Holy Thursday. “Judas went out; and it was night.”
Please keep praying for Tom and Kate and baby Alfie. And pray for the people of the U.K. who live under this kind of medical tyranny. Alfie won’t be its last victim!
