I think the parents made the wrong choice since leukemia is one of the more treatable cancers around. I can understand if it were pancreatic cancer or liver cancer which have low (under 20%) five year survival rates.Originally Posted by kyuuei
I do agree with the court decision. I don't think anyone should be forced to undergo an expensive medical procedure against their will. We don't like to think of healthcare as an economic transaction, but that's what it is. You have to pay someone to get a service. The government shouldn't be in the position to force a person to spend thousands or tens of thousands on a procedure they don't want. If the government does force someone to undergo a medical procedure, then the government should pay for it.
