In Ohio recently, an Amish girl was given chemotherapy by doctors despite objections from her parents, who opt instead to have faith in God to heal her. The government appointed a guardian to the girl on the basis they were protecting her right to life, a Constitutional duty of government. But yet this is also a violation of one’s right to religious freedom.
So where do you stand on this issue? Feel free to comment below after voting if you wash to elaborate on your reason for voting.
As you may or may not know, (you’d know if you read my blog anyway) in 1996 the federal government passed the Federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) which requires hospitals to aid a dying patient regardless of their ability to pay or circumstances surrounding their injuries.
Do you feel this is a good thing, bad thing, or somewhere in between?
