    Therefore, the empirical evidence is that the boy can't make the correct decision, and since the boy is a minor child isn't necessary for someone to make the correct decision for him, and since his mother and father are fools, that means the court has to do it.

    No, you said "[t]he person's body in this issue is too young to make an informed choice." I merely addressed that, which is separate from the fact that this individual has been brainwashed.
