the girl's family had ceased chemo treatment, the hospital went to court and was granted custody of her, so she could resume treatments.

thoughts?

 Because the government is so wonderful at handling everything else they should be in charge of our health care decisions too....When are Americans going to stop giving their rights away in favor of life being, "easy"?

I guess we're now throwing body autonomy back out the window.

Thats bullshit. That is not a hospitals choice that is a choice that the parents need to make.

That's crazy
I wonder if the courts asked the girl if she wanted to continue treatment?
IMO She old enough to make that decision
