LONDON (AP) — A British judge has rejected a request from the parents of a comatose boy to let them move their son to a hospice when hospital doctors withdraw his life-support treatment. The parents of Archie Battersbee vowed Friday to fight on, and applied again to the European Court of Human Rights to intervene. The ECHR had refused to wade into the court battles earlier this week, and it wasn't immediately clear if it would now take the case. The 12-year-old has been in a coma since early April and doctors believe he is brain dead. His mother, Hollie Dance, said: “We are broken, but we are keeping going, because we love Archie and refuse to give up on him.”
