I think it should be up to the kid, at that age you can make choices for yourself to a satisfactory degree. If the kids wants to listen to his
parents, good. If he wants to listen to his doctors, good as well. If the kid doesn't want it, then they shouldn't give it to him, its his life.
He knows the risks of going the natural way, he might die. But that's a risk I'm sure he's aware of.
I am not okay with parents who let their child needlessly die and that is what would have happened if someone hadn't stepped in.
Let him "needlessly" die, if he wants to. His parents aren't letting him do anything, he's not someone's property.
