US law: running people’s lives, whether they want it to or not.

A 16-year-old boy, who just so happens to have cancer, and his family are being taken to court because they don’t want to go through chemotherapy treatment. Uh, okay. Who’s business is it? Apparently, they went through it once, and the cancer he has came back. So, naturally, they’re a little iffy on going through it a second time–that’s hell to go through once, never mind twice. So, they want to try some herbal treatment instead. Now, personally, I’m no fan of herbal medicine, but that’s just me. I’m no fan of the more mainstream medicine either. I don’t care what the hell treatment this or that person prefers. If you’re the type to close your eyes, snap your fingers and believe it’s supposed to fix things, then by all means go for it. At no point, though, is it the state’s right to tell you what the hell to do so far as medicine goes, in my honest opinion. But that’s precisely what the Verginia courts apparently want to do. I dunno. Maybe I just don’t care about the popular opinion, but I figure the court system should go back to putting people in jail, and let the individual families decide how the hell to make the big decisions. But, it’s the US, who seems not to have a problem in monitoring everything from your internet trafic to your phone conversations in the supposed name of homeland security, so I aught not to be surprised.
