Should Government Be Able To Force Medical Treatment On People? – Podcast

 

This issue is increasingly becoming popular.

A court in Ohio has ruled that a hospital can get custody of an Amish girl in order to force her to undergo chemotherapy treatment for her cancer against her parents’ wishes.

The beliefs and convictions of the parents can’t outweigh the rights of the state to protect the child, the court said. It also ordered that the guardian should be appointed right away.

Callers are always passionate about this issue.
