Critically ill British infant Indi Gregory died overnight on Monday after her life support was removed over the weekend following a U.K. court order.
The 8-month-old Gregory died in her mother’s arms in a hospice at 1:45 a.m. on Nov. 13, according to British advocacy group Christian Concern.
In a statement released through Christian Concern, Gregory’s parents said they “are angry, heartbroken, and ashamed. The NHS and the courts not only took away her chance to live a longer life, but they also took away Indi’s dignity to pass away in the family home where she belonged.”
The process to remove Gregory’s life support began on Nov. 11 with extubation of her breathing tube and transfer to a hospice, where remaining life supporting measures were withdrawn, according to the Italian pro-life advocacy group “Pro Vita e Famiglia.”
