In another post for another day, I might mention concerns about what we are turning into when we think the collective should make decisions for individual families. But, that's another post.
Today, I'll just say that I am a parent, as well as a labor nurse. Since I don't do drugs, don't abuse my children, and can meet their needs, I get to make the decisions that are best for my family. Other medical professionals, assuming they don't do drugs, don't abuse their children, and can meet their children's needs, can do the same, FOR THEIR OWN CHILDREN. Everybody wins.
The rights of the individual are only limited by the rights of another individual, and we have case by case analysis of ethical issues arising from the conflict of a parent's religious beliefs and the health needs and rights of the child to treatment. This is not a double standard, this is protection from government intrusion into the lives of the many for the sake of the few.
