Salyavin,
 

 There's nothing wrong in dying with dignity.  The human body does not have to 
be prolonged by artificial means.   It can be justified, in most cases, to 
leave the body alone by itself to follow the natural course.  If the body 
recovers, it would be the best.  If it does not, then life would end naturally.

 The land of the free. Free to die because of religious beliefs? Fair enough. 
Plenty of belief systems refuse blood transfusions. I've known TMers who say 
they would refuse any sort of transplant because they don't want someone else's 
karma. In fact, I've known people who died because they chose alternative 
healthcare. Alternative to things that work it would seem.
 

 This is why I say natural selection works on the religious too. Not cruel at 
all, or at least no crueller than it is for you and me. Maybe if I'd read 
article
 

 

 That's a very cruel comment. I'm on the side of the parents. Since when does 
the state have the right to inflict chemotherapy on people who don't want it? 
The family has every right to choose an alternative method of treatment. This 
is supposed to be the land of the free.

 Yup, natural selection works on the religious too. Maybe they'll see the irony 
in that and stop being so silly.

 But the State of Ohio wants her to continue the treatment.  It appears to me 
that the girl and her family have the right to forego the treatment if that is 
their religious preference to do so.
