This family beleives in natural healing and the government is forcing treatment against the will of both the child and the parent. I dont know if its all that smart to battle a tumor with natural healing but it shouldn't be up to the government to decide.

NEW ULM, Minn. – Authorities nationwide were on the lookout Wednesday for a mother and her 13-year-old cancer-stricken son who fled after refusing the chemotherapy that doctors say could save the boy's life.

I think america is a great country but when I see things like this happen.... it makes me wonder if we truly are in a free country

Actually the natural healing will fix the problems faster and better than the FDA's magical working treatments. The chemotherapy and radiation therapy will get rid of the cancer/tumor, but will destroy what the cancer didn't.

I knew it wasn't a free country when they said we couldn't go to cuba or grow plants THEY deem illegal.
There's too many laws for this to be a free country. You can't govern a free country so they went and made everyone a criminal in some regard or another, be it some antibiotic you got from your sister, some music you downloaded, or the fact that you drove 56 in a 55 zone.

I agree with the government. Youd think people would have learned from all the other children who have died because of their parents religious views. That natural healing # doesn't work and you are simply relying on luck.
Freedom without limitations is far worse then people tend to think. We sometimes think the world would be better without governments, but without that control there would be anarchy. And in anarchy the strong kill the weak and there is no health care or medicine.

whether or not the treatment is better... that is supposed to be optional.

when a new virus breaks out and the only cure from the government is to chop your penis off
