Who do our children belong to? The teen was recieving medical care, under the diagnosis of a doctor. A hospital didn't agree, the parents didn't fall into lockstep and the courts take the child away? No wonder the government wants to take our guns.......

We're from the government and we're here to help.

This is bizarre:
(1) Tufts University has a well-respected teaching hospital, not a clinic run by a quack.
(2) The parents and child are residents of Connecticut, and seeked treatment for her out of state. Should MA have jurisdiction? I don't think we're dealing with bad parents who actually took her to a private hospital, out of state to give her the care she needs.

...and if they'll do it to them, they will do it to you too.

There may soon come a day when if diagnosed and prescribed the latest most profitable drug and you refuse to take it you will be diagnosed a mental case and restrained or drugged into submission.

Don't want chemo? Too bad. Stents? Too bad. Wanna die at home? Too Bad.

I will eventually look up how Advance Directives are handled under the new health care finance reform. I doubt I will like what I find.

Something appears to be missing from that story. It doesn't make sense.

There was a previous story, when the hospital and the state took the child away.

Why the court-ordered gag order?
