Parents vs. Doctors

Parents you should be disturbed by interventions like this case where parents disagree with unproven treatment options, say no, and the disgruntled doctor reports the parents to the authorities. Then, this mother, who takes HER child out of the hospital is charged with kidnapping and child endangerment. A case like this happened in Texas. If the cases were clear, the parents certifiably nuts and cruel to the child, that's one thing. But these cases are about the doctor's absolute authority.

So, who then really has authority to make decision for your own children? Is this not America? Why would this mother be taken away because she chooses to seek "alternative medicine" for her child. It's not like she showed neclect in any way. Unbelievable!
