They have made the decisions they are making in a deluded state of mind. When you have no grip on reality it compels the courts to make mentally sound decisions for you.

As long as there is no documented evidence that suggests that it is actually able to cure anything then not seeking real medical treatment for a child should be considered abuse.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
If you believe both George Bush and Barrack Obama made only perfect decisions can you believe the government should have the final life and death health decisions of your child.
I also believe if the government takes that degree of control of a child over the parent, the government has to take care of that child economically and in terms of health for the rest of the child's life however long it is even if to 100 years old. Who controls, pays.
