The case of severely ill schoolgirl Tafida Raqeeb was brought up at the United Nations to support claims that 'the lives of children are not always respected in the UK'.
A session of the UN's human rights council in Geneva heard there was a 'lack of will' in Britain to save sick children.
Ruben - Navarro - Human - Rights - Advocate
Ruben Navarro, a Spanish human rights advocate, told the council: 'Even though Tafida has brain activity, breathes independently, opens her eyes and communicates with her parents, her doctors have decided it is better to take her life.
'It is a problem of lack of will. As [with] Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard, these are examples of the fact that the lives of children are not always respected in the UK.'
Alfie - Charlie - Infancy - Court - Treatment
Alfie and Charlie both died in infancy after court battles over what treatment they should receive.
A High Court judge is currently considering whether doctors should save the brain-damaged five-year-old who suffered a burst blood vessel in her head in February.
Parents - Court - Daughter
Her parents have begged the court to save their daughter.
But Royal London Hospital has asked the court to sanction switching off her life-support machine.
Blow - Parents - Battle - Tafida - Guardian
In a bitter blow to her parents' desperate battle to save her, Tafida's court-appointed guardian sided with doctors yesterday and said it would be kinder to let her die, saying: 'Tafida is not going to get better.'
Tafida's mother, solicitor Shelina Begum, 39, and construction consultant father Mohammed Raqeeb, 45, have begged the court to save their daughter, who they say responds to their presence.
Blood - Vessel - Brain - February
She was struck down with a burst blood vessel in her brain on February 9.
Her parents say she may come out of her coma, given more time, but the Royal London Hospital has asked the court to sanction switching off her life-support machine.
