Personally, I don't believe the courts have any business interfering.

Let's start with the fact his parents named him "Starchild".   Now they
to treat his cancer with  a sugar free organic herbal diet sold only in
Mexico?   Approved treatments have side effects and don't always work,
but the cure rate for that diet is??????   I hope it isn't too late for
the courts to save him.


----------- Original message from William White <wbbanjo at YAHOO.COM>:

Drudge linked to this report:
A judge in Virginia ordered that "a 16-year-old boy fighting to use
alternative treatment for his cancer must report to a hospital by Tuesday
and accept treatment that doctors deem necessary . . . ."
'The judge also found Starchild Abraham Cherrix's parents were neglectful
for allowing him to pursue alternative treatment of a sugar-free, organic
diet and herbal supplements supervised by a clinic in Mexico. . . ."

I saw the lad and his parent interviewed on Hanity and Combs.  He was
quite articulate had come to his decision about the course of treatment
he wanted after a good bit of study on his cancer.   Forcing the lad to
take a treatment that has already proven unsuccessful and made him quite
weak is a woeful misuse of judicial power.  And to use State power to
undermine parental authority in the matter of health is to me a gross
violation of parental rights.  I look forward to a time when parents
reassert their perrogatives and reclaim their authority from the State.
Am I dreaming?
