Mother Refuses Cancer Treatment for her son on Religious Grounds..

Although I'm slightly torn on this issue, as she is seeking alternative treatment, I think she's just another Fundie Kook...

hmm...would she have aborted him had she known he would get cancer?

she just wants to be free of the little pain the ass.

can she bury the kid on those religious grounds..??

IMHO - parents should be legally responsible to pursue any and all forms of treatment...

quote - "Mr Hauser told the Star Tribune newspaper of Minneapolis: "I know many people around here who have had cancer. They did the chemo, it would come back. They did the chemo again and again and they are all in the grave. Chemo isn't foolproof."

no shyte Sherlock. and those herbs have such a great track record...and prayer too...

"We briefly have viewed the miserable results obtained by orthodox surgery and radiation. However, the record of so-called anti-cancer drugs is even worse. The primary reason for this is that most of them currently in use are highly poisonous, not just to cancer but to the rest of the body as well. Generally they are more deadly to healthy tissue than they are to the malignant cell."

Hello Atheist,

What is your opinion here? Should the parents be forced to seek conventional treatment by the government, or should the their choice of treatment be respected?

If christians value life, then they should opt for the cancer treatment.

I want to know why is god continuing to create such stupid parents?

Well... LOL

Hmmm...

although I do believe people should have their individual right to decide what is the best way to handle their own health care, I think in this case the court is correct, and must intervene and take charge of the situation in the best interest in the child..

However on the other hand, I don't like g-ment interference in people's lives...

I can only think of how Pissed I would be if someone was forcing me to do something against my will, or beliefs for that matter..

However on the other hand... LOL

Should we allow someone to use their religion to refuse treatment for a child, which may not be in the best interest of the child ?

Should we allow people to use alternative methods for treatment, and what kind of treatment should be allowed ??

I don't know, tough situation..

I guess if I had to vote or had to make a judgment I would side with traditional medical treatment...

An Individuals right should be protected,,but where do you draw the line ?

I first read this in the Denver Post.What got me was that this 13 yo boy can't read.

I quote:
In his ruling, Rodenberg noted that at age 13, Daniel can't read. "He lacks the ability to give informed consent to medical procedures," Rodenberg said.

This poor boy need more then help for a fight with cancer.
