"If he's still fighting, we're still fighting", said Connie Yates, the mother of 11-month-old Charlie Gard. Yates and Charlie's father, Chris Gard, spoke outside London's Great Ormond Street Hospital, where the baby is in intensive care and on life support.
Gard's parents, who submitted a petition of over 350,000 signatures demanding that they be allowed to take him to the United States for treatment, attended the hearing at the High Court in London.
But the judge insisted there had to be "new and powerful" evidence to reverse earlier rulings that barred Charlie from traveling overseas for treatment and authorized London's Great Ormond Street Hospital to take him off life support.
It ruled the children's hospital could turn off his life support.
"This is not an issue about money or resources, but absolutely about what is right for Charlie", said the hospital.
"Two global hospitals and their researchers have shown these past 24 hours they had new items for the experimental treatment", said the hospital in a press release to justify this sudden reversal of the situation.
She said: "We have seven doctors supporting us from all around the world".
Despite the arguments of medical and legal professionals, Charlie Gard's parents haven't given up their fight.
The couple were speaking after two United States congressmen said they would table legislation to give Charlie and his family U.S. resident status in a bid to allow them to travel there for experimental treatment.
The case has prompted intervention from the Pope and US President Donald Trump, who offered support for the baby, with hospitals in both countries offering to take Charlie.
"I couldn't sit there and watch him in pain and suffering, I promise you I wouldn't", she said in an emotional interview with BBC Breakfast, adding: "I think parents know when their children are ready to go and they've given up and Charlie is still fighting".
Charlie can not breathe without a ventilator due to a form of mitochondrial disease which affects the cells responsible for energy production and respiration. It reads: "It is unacceptable that you have refused to follow the wishes of his parents and have instead made a decision to remove his life support, which will kill him".
Doctors describe his condition as exceptionally rare, with catastrophic and irreversible brain damage.
The nucleoside therapy offered in the United States has not yet been "sufficiently tested" on humans and makes no promises of success in Charlie's case.
Katie Gollop QC, representing Charlie's guardian, told the preliminary hearing in the Family Division at the High Court that his condition had not changed since the April ruling when Mr Justice Francis had said Charlie should be allowed to "die with dignity". Great Ormond Hospital said they denied the transfer for legal reasons.
It comes after a proposal by Pope Francis to give Charlie a Vatican passport so he can be flown there for potentially life-saving treatment.
