Parents want mercy killing for their 8-months-old girl child as she is suffering from a rare liver disease. The parents unable to stand her pain, so they approached a local court in Chittoor seeking permission for mercy killing of their daughter Gnana Sai. But according to reports, Andhra Pradesh government and Global Hospitals have come forward and offered treatment to the baby.
According to ABP live, the child is suffering from Biliary Atresia, a congenital condition that caused the baby to be born without a bile duct, which in turn lead to liver damage. Doctors had recommended a liver transplant for Sai within two months. One of the parents is a possible liver donor but they didn’t have the kind of money the treatment needed. So, the parents of the baby- Ramanappa and his wife Saraswati, sought the court’s intervention to have the state bear the medical expense of the child’s medical treatment or allow her mercy killing.
However, state health minister Kamineni Srinivas took up the matter with chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who announced that help would be provided Rs 30 lakh to the child from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. The treatment will be done in Chennai.
