I think if the quality of life and chances of a successful outcome are poor then you can refuse treatment - or a parent can on a child's behalf - and the doctors will respect your wishes.
I think a good outcome was predicted in this case, hence the court case. I know at least one child was removed from the care of Jehovah's Witness parents who were refusing life-saving treatment.
No child will be allowed to die if treatment can save it, only if it is unlikely that it will.
What's baffling me? how come my LED electricity saving light bulbs say on the box "will last 25 years" yet I get a 12 month guarantee.
I can't wait for it to pack in because I'm going to take both bulb and box back to Tesco. The drawback is if it goes in 24 and a half years I will be in my 70s and probably won't care by then.
why people pay £25 to get in a club thats normally £5 just because its NYE
I'm baffled as to why people put on Facebook that they are off out to get hammered tonight, then the next day expect sympathy for their hangover.
