So what do all you ladies think about the courts decision to force Daniel Hauser to take medical intervention? If you don't know who he is, he is the 13 year old boy who has cancer, but his parents are refusing treatment based on their religious beliefs. They have convinced this boy that he doesn't need chemotherapy. The courts have stepped in, and are forcing the parents to treat him. What are your thoughts?

In certain situations I think this is a good thing. Although, I respect every-one's right to choose their religion, I don't think a boy this age quite understands the consequences of not getting the proper medical treatment. They said he had a 90% chance of survival with chemo.... who knows, maybe his parents need this intervention to help him, regardless of their religious view. Since they disagree, but he gets it, they are free from feeling guilt regarding their religion or his possible passing. It is easy to give such an opinion when I'm not in his parents minds.
