A Canadian judge has ruled that baby Isaiah James May's life support can continue for now while the lawyers re-explore what has turned into a controversial case of possible euthanasia.

Life News reports Madame Justice Michelle Crighton ruled care and treatment can continue until Feb. 19, as Isaiah's parents Rebecka and Isaac May say how their son's condition continues to get better.

The Mays will now go to an independent doctor to evaluate their son's medical prospects.

On October 24, 2009, baby Isaiah was born with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.

As a result, the baby suffered severe brain damage. Doctors diagnosed that the child had no hope for recovery. Now, the doctors want to remove the baby's ventilator.

However, Rebecka and Isaac say their baby is showing signs of recovery and they don't want to pull the plug. Full story.
