Just so you know

Charlie Gard has passed after life support was withdrawn by the hospital in the UK.

I don't want to use him as an example of why "Socialized Medicine" is not a great idea....But realize that it was the National Health folks who successfully kept him from receiving (Experimental, and by no means a sure thing), treatment elsewhere until it was, likely, too late for him.

The issue isn't who paid for his treatment, it was that they wouldn't even let the parents take him elsewhere to try and help him.

The State owns the British children, apparently.
