In a joint statement, the U.S. politicians said: "Our bill will support Charlie's parents' right to choose what is best for their son, by making Charlie a lawful permanent resident in the USA in order for him to receive treatments that could save his life".

'He's our son, he's our flesh and blood, ' she said.

Mr Gard said they needed a specialist in Charlie's condition and therefore need to send him to America to "give him the chance he deserves".

The London hospital caring for 11-month-old Charlie Gard has requested a new hearing to consider "fresh evidence" about a possible treatment for his rare condition.

In an abrupt shift, a London hospital said that it would reconsider its decision to turn off life support for Charlie Gard, a brain-damaged and terminally ill British infant, in the light of "fresh evidence" about a potential treatment.

Charlie inherited the faulty RRM2B gene from his parents, affecting the cells responsible for energy production and respiration and leaving him unable to move or breathe without a ventilator.

Reps. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said Friday they would introduce a bill to bring the family to America - days after a European court ruled little Charlie should be taken off life support, and multiple global hospitals offered to take him in.

"Not only that, but they said it would be futile and would prolong Charlie's suffering. We feel that it should be our right as parents to decide to give him a chance at life", Yates, carrying a petition signed by some 350,000 people supporting the couple's quest, said.

The same day, US President Donald Trump tweeted that the US would be delighted to help the boy. One of those doctors is a researcher and neurologist from Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital in Rome, which has previously offered to treat Charlie.

GOSH said its view of treatment, however, had not changed - but that it believed it was right to seek the view of the High Court.

Mother Connie Yates maintains her son is "not in pain or suffering" and that "the support from the Pope and the President has given us hope".

Sky News's Ashish Joshi spoke to a leading American pro-life lawyer who is close to the family, the chief executive of Americans United for Life, Catherine Glenn-Foster, about the new High Court hearing, who said it was "very, very, promising".

The hospital is now bound by court rulings barring it from sending Charlie anywhere for the experimental treatment, nucleoside therapy.

Doctors finally bowed to global pressure on Friday to give the desperately ill baby another chance.After being handed fresh evidence by seven worldwide experts, Great Ormond Street asked the High Court to reopen the agonising case.

A GoFundMe campaign for Charlie has raised more than £1.3 million, or roughly $1.7 million.

Nucleoside therapy is the experimental treatment available to Charlie in the USA, but it has yet to be sufficiently tested, according to a BBC News' report.

Justice Secretary David Lidington said the Government had "no role to play" in the case.
