Jehovah’s witnesses may be a little nuts at times, but…

I can certainly see the point in this case. This time, it’s the Canadian court that wants to stick its nose where it doesn’t belong when it comes to certain people’s medical needs. A 15-year-old girl refused a blood tranfusion for religious reasons, and now British Columbia’s medical system is trying to force her to undergo the treatment. Okay, so I don’t agree with her reasons. It still should be her choice. I’ve already bitched about the court systems in the US sticking their noses where they don’t belong. And that one involved someone who was refusing chemotherapy. Again, so I don’t agree with the reason. It still isn’t the court’s, or the medical system’s, decision. If the patient, or the patient’s family, doesn’t want to undergo a treatment in question, doctors and health officials *cannot* force them to. It isn’t their place, and it most definitely isn’t their responsibility. And the sooner someone reminds them of that, the sooner they can stop wasting the court system’s time so they can actually deal with something that matters.
