So there are plenty of people who become righteously indignant when people choose to skip medical treatment for religious reasons. And when it comes up, the point is always made that it's a slippery slope, and where does it end? How far should the government be allowed to force you to medicate your child? Should the be allowed to forcibly remove them from your home because you opt for a holistic treatment instead of a prescription that you feel is doing more harm than good with its side effects?
This ended up in an armed stand off when police showed up and tried to remove a teenager without a warrant, simply because the mother refused to force her to take the meds.
Obviously, she took it too far, but is this what people really have in mind when they insist that parents should always do what doctors tell them? Drug your child or hand them over to the cops at your door?Answer Question
