    Well, it's just not the government's decision. Now if her mother (her only legal guardian) decided she should have the chemo, that's another thing. But the mother is on her side in the matter. For the hospital to take the decision away from them where the decision affects only her is wrong. The liberty to live is also the liberty to choose death.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That only applies when you're killing babies.

    Are you pro Euthanasia? I am just thinking this thru, professionally I am interested in medical ethics.

    Her mother is a mature mind. Her mother supports her choice. Her mother is her legal guardian. Not everyone needs the "mature minds" of their state government to do the thinking for them.

    Oh no... that doesn't apply here. It's only her body her choice when there's an unwanted pregnancy. In this case it would be very inconvenient indeed for her to have a choice. (Good point out of the hypocrisy though!)

    She certainly will be without treatment, probably not if treated.

    I did not realize you are pro abortion. Interesting.

    Oh no, I am NOT pro-"abortion". I am pro-choice because it is the law of the land. I personally abhor the notion of abortion.
