Cancer Kid Update

Well, this is good news. Looks like the court has ruled in the favor of not killing children, ordering the parents of 13-year-old Daniel Hauser, who suffers from treatable cancer, to give him the chemotherapy that doctors say will mean a 90% chance of survival. Hauser’s parents are members of a quasi-Native American cult that doesn’t believe in real medicine. They reportedly planned on treating their son’s cancer with a rice diet. Fuck these people in the face. Ditto for their attorney, who offered this prize quote: “[The ruling] marginalizes the decisions that parents face every day in regard to their children's medical care. It really affirms the role that big government is better at making our decisions for us." Well, not “us” so much as “some people”. Specifically, these people. More details here. And thanks to Christian for the link.
