A Minnesota judge issued an arrest warrant Tuesday for the mother of Daniel Hauser, a 13-year-old boy who is refusing treatment for his cancer, after neither she nor the boy showed up for a court appearance
He and his parents opted instead for "alternative medicines" based on their religious beliefs.
I think this is a very interesting case as the ruling on the part of the Judge really does bespeak that it is the State that ultimately owns us and can make decisions that supercede those of the parents and the child.
what the difference of dieing at age 13, 30, or 80?
It's a slippery slope saying the govt. should decide.
