Posts for tag: Parental Rights

This is every parent’s worst nightmare come true: To be stripped of their parental rights and having the state decide that toxic chemotherapy be given to their daughter.  Not only are parental rights at stake here but Human Rights are at stake as well!  Forcing any person to have a poisonous treatment that is certain to cause suffering  yet not certain to cure the cancer  is a direct violation of human rights!  The young girl in this story was undergoing chemotherapy until the pain she developed was so severe that she begged her parents to stop the treatments. 

Although some cancers respond well to chemotherapy and radiation, it is very important to realize that many cancers do NOT.  Regardless of how well a type of cancer responds people need to be informed about what these drugs may do to the rest of their bodies.  The most significant side effect of chemotherapy drugs is the developement of.... OTHER Cancers! The Seattle Times recently ran a story that used data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that showed a high level of contamination in areas where chemotherapy drugs are used.  And what is more alarming is the increasing numbers of healthcare workers being diagnosed with cancer that handle chemotherapy drugs (this includes an increased number of pharmacists that dispense chemotherapy drugs being diagnosed with cancer)!

Unfortunately these issues have less to do with Good Science and more to do with Money, Big Money.  Chemotherapy drugs generate revenue in the BILLIONS for the pharmaceutical companies that produce them.  Lastly, the hospital that “won” this decision stands to profit from the administration of these toxic drugs, if this is not a conflict of interest then what is???
