Parents fight to save daughter on life support after UK court demands they pull plug 

An international tug-of-war has broken out over a desperately ill 2-year-old girl in England, where an American dad is fighting British doctors who want to pull the plug on her life support.

Severely brain-damaged at birth, little Alta Fixsler has been on a ventilator her entire life, requires a feeding tube and suffers from seizures. She cannot maintain a core body temperature, or even blink, at times needing her eyes taped shut.

Her doctors at Royal Manchester Children's Hospital believe Alta has "no conscious awareness," and English courts have backed the medical experts' decision to let Alta die.

But Alta's father, Abraham Fixsler, who attended yeshiva in Brooklyn as a youth, continues to fight for her life.

"There is no reason to kill my daughter like this," he insisted to The Post.
