So doctors now become the legal guardians of who gets treated for what they think is needed,as court judges determine who is unable to decide as to age or mental state.If a Forced medical treatment kills or injures someone,Who gets sued or is responsible?

these parents only adopted this indian religion for court purposes..they have never practiced this religion..so their excuses do not make sense of why they do not want thier child to have this life saving medicine...and he is learning disabled and cannot even read so he doesn't know what he is doing? this type of cancer has a 90% cure rate..why not cure him?

So again you believe the courts/law should determine,along with the doctors,what is to be done as to medical/medicine treatment for those who They decide needs their rules?As to religion or beliefs I guess you would make that judgment too,based on how long they were members/believers of whatever group?And if the treatment failed?

hey just because a person gives birth does not make them a good parent, also, there could be mental problems with the mother, the father has now decided that he wants his son to have treatment...because the xray has shown that the tumor is back to the original size it was in January when they first found it...i'm sorry but we don't live in the stone age, if you are preventing your childs life from being saved and you have no religious convictions then yes it should be forced...these people stated in a court of law the reason they adopted this religion is because of it's beliefs about "do no harm to ones self" they have never practiced this religion at all...
