REIMS, France, May 20 (LifeSiteNews) — Vincent Lambert has been saved once again thanks to the last, desperate attempt of his lawyers who assailed three courts this Monday after he was given sedatives and his feeding tube was pulled in order to lead to his death. It was the Paris court of appeal that accepted to examine the case on Monday at 5 p.m. in an emergency procedure and it decided that sedation should be stopped and food and hydration given to Vincent because of France’s obligation to respect the interim measures demanded by the UN Committee for the Rights of Disabled Persons.

 A “miracle!” Jérôme Triomphe, one of the lawyers of Viviane and Pierre Lambert and two siblings of Vincent, was overjoyed at the news. “It’s like in 2013,” he told LifeSite: during the first end-of-life process Vincent was submitted to, it was the same team of lawyers who obtained that the handicapped man should be nourished after 31 days without food and very little water.

The court decision will be presented to Reims hospital on Tuesday morning. The hospital has no other option than to obey.
