Thread Name: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
Subject: RE: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
I'm interested in this case, all compassion aside, because Americans are renowned for letting their children die of curable things for religious reasons. The question here is, who should get to decide the fate of a child, its parents or the legal system.

I'm only in favor of letting the Christians Scientists let their kids die rather than have an appendectomy from the point of view of the survival of the fittest.

But if I think the State should step in to protect the life of a curably ill child, does that mean I also think it should step in to allow an incurably ill one to die? *IS* it the same question?
