If my child was 13, you better believe that I and my wife would make the decision. Also for the five year old. The government has no business to tell me when, where or how I should treat a sickness or not treat a sickness.<quoted text>
Again, I'm more curious about what goes on in MN. Also, do you believe the parents of Daniel Hauser, have the right to make this medical decision for their son? What if the boy was 17? What if he were 5?
A boy of 17. This is a tough call. I was 17 when I left home and worked my way through college. My folks did not have the money. I was the first (of 5) and only one in my family to go onto college and my parents told me I could go only if I could support myself. So I was young, naive and optimistic. I made my daily decisions but I am sure I would of involved my parents if a life threatening medical condition stared me in my face and I was unsure.
A good question Mellers.
