Parents chose holistic medicine instead of conventional and the child died. They are charged. What are your thoughts on this?
I knew a man who had very bad cancer...it was terminal. He listened to his family, who owned a health food store, and decided to forego convential medicine by taking mega vitamins and drinking tons of carrot juice. I was getting chemo at the time and not working ...so between treatments, I would sit with him while his wife was at the store working. His doctor was outraged because he thought this gentleman should have been encouraged to try the conventional medicine first...his cancer could have been cured at that point. His son was angry with his mom and sis for encouraging him to just rely on health doses of vits,etc. He died and that was that.
This is different because the child cannot speak on his own behalf. I think the parents were very wrong. I think the authorities should have taken this decision away from the parents long before the point of no return. Any opinions on this?
