So if a child of a Jehovah's Witness requires a blood transfusion to save their life, but of course the JW parent refuses on religious grounds, you don't think it's a good idea to override that?Meds wrote: ↑Thu Dec 10, 2020 9:58 am If I were to ask you if you would want someone to have the right to provide a medical service to your children against your consent you would probably say no. If I presented the suggestion by saying it was in your child's best interests, you might say yes in regards to this topic. However, if you actually were convinced that said medical service was NOT in your child's best interest, you would say no.
When we start to force things on people against their will because we believe that it's in their best interests, that's where we go wrong. This applies to medical services, religion, limiting artistic expression, or just about anything you can think of.
