What the hell is wrong with you, lady? Your son has a growing tumor that can be treated and you are refusing it based on what you believe in? Are you kidding? You obviously don't believe in LOVE for your CHILD. I hope the authorities find you and charge you with attempted murder, and if your son dies, I hope it's first-degree murder. This just makes me SICK. So glad my family is smart enough to treat their cancer-stricken child. Stop being stupid and treat your child.

What? I guess Jesus' appointment book is filled up. Why can't he heal this kid? Very unreliable, this Jesus character.

seem like she has a little bit of mental issues. The doctors should make her sign over all of her rights to this child and take over and do what they have to save this child life.

They are trying to do that now, trying to order him into foster care. This 13 year old child can't even READ. His parents are morons. I'm betting the dad is a liar and knows exactly where they are. I hope the parents are arrested and never see the sun again if that kid dies. Wonder what they will think about their precious GOD while they are burning in hell..........

The only reason the state wants to save a human life is because it sees another taxpayer dying and not contributing.

As much as I disagree with running away to avoid the chemo, the kid is realistically old enough that I think he can decide for himself.

Did any of you anti-Christian bigots even read the article?
Quote: The Hausers are Roman Catholic and also believe in the "do no harm" philosophy of the Nemenhah Band, a Missouri-based religious group that believes in natural healing methods advocated by some American Indians.
Do some research and you will find that the Nemenha Band is a Native American religious group. Do you condemn them as well or is your zealotry confined only to Christians?
Personally I don't care what anyone else believes. If they want to worship purple elephants that is fine by me. I don't have to agree with a person's beliefs to see them as human nor will I condemn those beliefs just because they are different.

Maybe you might wish to read a bit closer. The Nemenha Band is a quasi-Native American band. It's founder is a former criminal - great background, and the family PAYS $250.00 per year to join. However, even he says the mother should not have run away.

Just wait a couple years--once Ø has his way with "prevention" there'll be a warrant issued for anyone who tries to skip a Colonoscopy.

I will surely keep the mother in prayer. but she really needs to let the doctors do what ever they have to, so that the child may live.

Actually it's even more than that. They pay 250 to join and then it's a 100 a month. She must have severe mental issues.

"Arrest ordered for mom of boy, 13, resisting chemo"
Where do you see "15"?Where did you read he`s "retarded"?And what does a "normal" child look like?On the subject at hand,the families religious beliefs should have nothing to do with the treatment of a sick child,or a sick adult for that matter.The fact at hand is that too many times we as a society are quick to judge when instead we should be quicker to help.Just think if all who are spending their time chastising the parents of this boy were instead out looking for him,how much sooner he would receive the treatment he so desperately needs.He is a CHILD for Gods sake!Show a little moral consciousness here!I don`t care WHAT religious beliefs YOU have or don`t have,this child is in danger of losing his life!!!I was raised Catholic.Went through 12 years of Catholic school.Does that mean I think ALL should worship MY God?NO!Does that mean I HATE those with alternative religious beliefs?NO!Does that give YOU the right to chastise or hate ME?ABSOLUTELY NOT!I believe in God.Say my prayers every night before I close my eyes.But I also believe that if my child is deathly ill and in need of medical attention,God had better not be in my way when my ass goes flying by on the way to the Emergency Room!!!
