(January 8, 2015) Medical Tyranny: Supreme Court Just Ruled the Government Can Force a 17-Year-Old to Take Chemotherapy
How can any American living here in the supposed “land of the free” honestly believe we still are?
The Connecticut Supreme Court has now ruled that yes, the government has the power to force a minor to undergo chemotherapy treatments even if she doesn’t want to.
That’s right. The court has unanimously determined that a 17-year-old patient cannot refuse chemotherapy treatment, even if her mother agrees they want to seek alternative treatment, for her Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
We aren’t just a fascist oligarchy and a police state, but we absolutely a medical tyranny.
Let’s just try to overlook the fact (even though it’s huge and deserving of its own article) that we even live in a society where the number children getting cancer these days is skyrocketing.
This particular story centers around 17-year-old Cassandra Callender who, after being diagnosed with cancer in September and taking two treatments, ran away from home for a week in November because she did not want to take anymore.
