The family of a very ill but fully conscious Christian patient in the United Kingdom condemned to die after doctors said she was not able to make decisions and should not be allowed to seek life-saving treatments abroad is speaking out.

According to a report in CBN, the family of Sudiksha Thirumalesh, 19, issued a statement after the teen’s death just days ago.

“We want to thank the medical practitioners who did their best for Sudiksha. To those few clinicians who seemed only to care about Sudiksha dying, we forgive you. We are a Christian family who believes in life, love, and forgiveness.”

They continued, “Sudiksha was a wonderful daughter and sister who we will cherish forever. We cannot imagine life without her. We seek justice for Sudiksha today, and for others in her situation.

“We are deeply disturbed by how we have been treated by the hospital trust and the courts. We have been gagged, silenced, and most importantly, prevented from accessing specialist treatment abroad for Sudiksha. Had she been allowed to seek nucleoside treatment six months ago it may well be that she would still be with us and recovering.”

The teen died last week following a lengthy hospital and court battle in which the U.K.’s National Health Service prevented her from seeking potentially life-saving treatments abroad.

For months, the courts, at the insistence of the NHS, refused to give the family permission even to release her name. Even now, the court’s have ordered a complete censorship of the name of the health institution and doctors involved in depriving her of an option to be treated abroad.

She was diagnosed with a rare Mitochondrial disease that caused muscle weakness, loss of hearing and kidney damage.

Despite her health condition, she was fully conscious and able to communicate, seeking permission to try to find a successful treatment, explaining she would rather “die trying to live.’

Doctors, who still remain in hiding behind the court-ordered anonymity, refused her permission to that, effectively prescribing death for her.

She had sought permission from the Court of Protection to travel to Canada to join a clinical trial of cutting-edge nucleoside treatment to help her, but was refused, the report said.

“A judgment from Mrs. Justice Roberts in the weeks before her death disturbingly said that Sudiksha did not have the capacity to make such decisions after the NHS lawyers argued she was ‘delusional’ for disagreeing with the hospital’s view that her condition was hopeless and she had to be put on an end of life pathway. The ruling was made despite two psychiatrists providing evidence to the contrary,” according to Christian Concern, which advocated for the ill teen.

“The family, Thirumalesh Chellamal Hemachandran, Revathi Malesh Thirumalesh, and her brother Varshan Chellamal Thirumalesh, spent all their savings on legal fees to stop NHS from pursuing efforts to end her life,” the reported explained.

When the NHS put her on “palliative care,” after the court’s fatal ruling, she died of kidney failure.

Now pending in the courts is a request by the family to “name the hospital, the hospital trust, and the clinicians involved in their daughter’s situation.”

Andrea Williams, chief of the Christian Legal Center, told the publication, “This profoundly disturbing case has demonstrated the urgent need for an overhaul into how critical care decisions are made in the NHS and the courts. There is an urgent need for a more open and transparent system. Justice is done in the light and not behind closed doors.”

The case exhibited many similarities to the cases involving Charlie Gard, Alfie Evans, and Archie Battersbee, where each time the NHS asked the Court of Protection to authorize the removal of life-saving medical treatment so that they would die.

WND reported when the judge’s fatal ruling came down that the judge had refused to accept the testimony of multiple expert psychiatrists who said she was mentally alert and competent.

The report noted that the judge claimed she wasn’t, based on the fact that she had hope that an experimental treatment would be found that could help.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.

As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”

Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?

Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.

The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
