I haven't been following this story super close. Really just over the last few days. This boy has a form of cancer with a high cure rate when chemo id used. His parents refused it wanted to use natural remedies. The court said they must do the chemo. The boy then says he will fight anyone who comes near him. Yesterday the boy and mom disappeared. Now today it seems there may be a man with them who went through a simalr thin at 16, used natural remedies and was cured. I would REALLY be interested to hear ya'll take on this. On one hand I really think the boy needs to get it, for his own good. Especially with the cure rate. On the other do I really want the gov't stepping in and telling me what medical procedures I HAVE to give my children? People are cured by natural (non toxic) remedies all the time!
This really has me not sure. What are ya'lls thoughts??
This is a link to the latest story and there are links to the others in this article.

I don't think the courts or the government have any business interfering with our health-care decisions. The boy is 13 yrs old, and is capable of making a choice as to what he wants. The government is already trying to stick their nose into everything we do, and while I personally would not withhold possible life saving treatment to my child, I wouldn't want the courts being able to tell me what I could and couldn't do. Kudos to the mom for defying the judge.
