The child is beaten, but not severely enough to warrant medical attention.

The child has a medical condition which degrades their quality of life somewhat, for reasons...
The parent frequently leaves very young(say under 7) children home alone for hours at a time.
The parents do not feed the child enough to the point of being very undernourished.
None of those situations.
Granted, spouting platitudes demanding they be totally devoid of reality is your thing - and ultimately to some partisan or loyalty to authoritarianism decrees about yourself you want to make. But not everyone can't deal with reality and always instead just uses messages to declare loyalty as their ideological chanting. You may want the topic to be your rambling and pouting pointless platitudes. No reason for me to agree to that pointlessness. You certainly can limit yourself to meaningless hypotheticals with no relation to reality or current actual issues on the topic if that is the limit of your capabilities or interests.
what level of danger do you swoop in?
like i said 5, 6 and 7 have very different levels you are applying this to all of them?
Heck 7 is just about eye glasses or something like braces.
Why have any religious freedom at all then for parental/child relationships?
These simplistic polls do not deal in reality. They assume the doctor in question is 100% right and the parent 100% wrong - then ask "do parents have rights in that situation?"
In the case I cited, the UK court ordered a child "medically treated" and that child lived, where they claimed otherwise soon will die. However, they had to kill the other child for one of them to have a full life time. It is ON POINT. You just don't like the questions it raises.
Yet rarely is it that simple. Many medical procedures have negative side effects, are a gamble, and some have known long term devastating effects for which the idea is live today - but then certain to die tomorrow - medical practice.
There are not just hypothetical issues. Some people want it so because they have an authoritarian pro-government ideological agenda.
In fact, this issue in terms of medical care most often now comes up concerning the trillion dollar per year for-profit cancer industry on the topic of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake. On this topic, the government treats children not only worse than adults, but worse than dogs. A person may refuse chemotherapy and radiation therapy. A dog has an owner who might. But the child had no rights. In fact, the government will declare the child's opinion - even if an older teenager - is irrelevant.
The reason some want this ONLY a hypothetical question is because in that they assert the doctor the government sides with is 100% right and everyone else 100% wrong (even if other doctors) and everyone else including the child and parent irrelevant.
Yet it is not such an absolute. When a poll was done of AMA licensed MD cancer specialists of whether they would have their own family members undergo chemotherapy, over 2/3rds said absolutely not for nearly any form of cancer. Legitimate, highly respected medical organizations, specialists and bio-medical experts have condemned chemotherapy, even declaring it is more deadly than the cancers it is used against. Even in application, usually the promise of chemotherapy is that maybe you won't die quite as quickly, and instead will die terribly a bit slower.
It is not as simplistic as some want to make it.
It is sad that often - whether custody disputes in court, issues of child abuse or neglect, medical issues and so forth can be so difficult, so unique to each case, and often there is no good solutions, only a question of which option is worse.
