Dublin, Ireland, Jan 27, 2021 / 05:01 pm (CNA).- The Supreme Court of Ireland ruled Friday that a hospital may withhold medical treatment contrary to the wishes of the parents of a child with severe injuries.

“The withholding of treatment to a child does not necessarily require parental consent to be lawful if it based on a properly made decision as to the best medical interests of the child and it would be contrary to medical ethics to provide the treatment,” the court wrote in its Jan. 22 decision In the matter of JJ.

Among the problems raised by the case are the end of life, family decisions on health treatment, and children’s rights.
