    Thomas.

    The parents raised the money and want for the child to get treatment here.

    Are you saying they are not entitled to a second opinion?

    Who is to decide there is no benefit?

    When have "judges" become the jury and executioner?

    It's one thing for the gov't to tell the parents that they cannot continue treatments for their child because the situation is hopeless in their opinion. It's another to say the parents cannot take their child elsewhere to another country to receive a different treatment option there, at their expense. The 1st case is understandable, but the 2nd is not.

    Disgusting that any society would elevate government over family.
