The parents of Archie Battersbee, a 12-year-old boy from the U.K., have been in a legal battle to keep their son on life support. Despite rulings stating doctors can remove life support against the family’s wishes, Archie’s parents, Hollie Dance and Paul Battersbee, have fought back.

christian Post reporter Samantha Kamman joins Billy Hallowell to tell the inside story on what happened to Battersbee — and why the battle surrounding his care matters.

This conversation was recorded before a Monday decision from a U.K. court to deny the Battersbees’ appeal request.
