Chris Gard and Connie Yates want 10-month-old Charlie Gard, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage, to undergo a therapy trial.
Charlie's mother broke down in tears and screamed as justices announced their decision and was led from the court by lawyers.
Specialists at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, where Charlie is being cared for, say therapy proposed by a doctor in America is experimental and will not help. They say life support treatment should stop.
A High Court judge in April ruled against a trip to America and in favour of Great Ormond Street doctors.
Mr Justice Francis concluded that life support treatment should end and said Charlie should be allowed to die with dignity. Three Court of Appeal judges upheld that ruling in May.
The parents of baby Charlie Gard have failed in their bid to have their case heard in full at the Supreme Court.
His mother sobbed loudly while the ruling was announced.
Ten-month-old Charlie has been in intensive care at Great Ormond Street Hospital since October last year.
The Family division of the High Court agreed two months ago that the hospital could withdraw Charlie's life support.
His parents have raised more than £1.3m through an internet appeal, in the hope they could take him to America for an experimental treatment.
