Medical Tyranny: Supreme Court Just Ruled the Government Can Force a 17-Year-Old to Take Chemotherapy

| |

medicaltyranny

How can any American living here in the supposed “land of the free” honestly believe we still are?

The Connecticut Supreme Court has now ruled that yes, the government has the power to force a minor to undergo chemotherapy treatments even if she doesn’t want to.

That’s right. The court has unanimously determined that a 17-year-old patient cannot refuse chemotherapy treatment, even if her mother agrees they want to seek alternative treatment, for her Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

We aren’t just a fascist oligarchy and a police state, but we absolutely a medical tyranny.

Let’s just try to overlook the fact (even though it’s huge and deserving of its own article) that we even live in a society where the number children getting cancer these days is skyrocketing.

This particular story centers around 17-year-old Cassandra Callender who, after being diagnosed with cancer in September and taking two treatments, ran away from home for a week in November because she did not want to take anymore. Cassandra has said that she feels chemotherapy is a poison and, that the girl, “believes chemotherapy would cause significant long-term bodily harm, like organ damage and infertility,” reported Vox. When she returned home, Cassandra refused to take anymore chemo and her mother stood by her daughter’s decision.

When the mother stood by her daughter’s decision and they refused to take any further treatment, the hospital reported Cassandra’s mom Jackie to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) who took Cassandra away and ordered the family to comply with the treatment.

Cassandra and her mom took the issue all the way to the Connecticut Supreme Court…and lost.

Cassandra’s case centered on the fact that both her and her mother’s constitutional rights were violated when the state attempted to force treatment; that patients can’t be forced to take such treatment over informed objection; and that the mature minor doctrine should be upheld which says that unemancipated minors may still be considered legally mature enough to make their own decisions in regards to health and medical treatments.

Connecticut, however, argued that the so-called “experts” have agreed that without chemo Cassandra could die, and because it is the state’s duty to save her from harm, the treatments must be made compulsory.

According to a DCF statement, “When experts — such as the several physicians involved in this case — tell us with certainty that a child will die as a result of leaving a decision up to a parent, then the Department has a responsibility to take action.”

So rule by experts…ah yes, add “technocracy” to the list because America is also a technocracy as well.

Once again, the government has trumped parental rights.

The court has upheld that they can force you to inject what you believe are poisons into your child’s body if they say they are the “experts” and it is for your child’s own good — something the State and its experts have decided they know better than parents do in these cases.

As I’ve reported before, the courts tried to force a 10-year-old Amish girl to receive chemotherapy in Ohio last year. The family went into hiding to avoid the decision.

Another case in Minnesota saw an eight-year-old girl whose family believed in alternative medicine forced to give her daughter chemo by the court.

But who will be held responsible if these State-forced medicines do cause harm down the road? Who will be legally responsible then?

The reality is, this won’t end with cancer treatments and we all know it.

We’re just getting started on this slippery slope to medical Hell. Can you imagine what they’ll use these court decisions to justify making compulsory in the future?

How about vaccinations for starters? All the “experts” have to do is say that they believe a vaccination is a life-preserving treatment and that parents who refuse vaccinations for their children are legally neglecting them in a way that might cause harm… America has already had the most aggressive vaccine schedule of any nation on the planet for a while now. States are already in the process of making it harder for parents to opt out of vaccinations, as the number “required” continues to grow.

Founding father Benjamin Rush warned over 200 years ago that medical freedom should have been added to the Constitution:

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.

– Benjamin Rush (1746-1813)

But they didn’t…and now here we are.

Land of the free? More like “home of the medically enslaved.”

      Our pharmaceutical industry is scary. Albuterol is an old and effective asthma med. It now costs less than a dollar a dose. The drug manufacturer tweeked it, calls it Xopenex, and charges hundreds of dollars a dose. The University of Chicago and othe hospitals sent out a memo, that the drugs are for all important reasons the same, and that Xopenex is not allowed.. Just one of many of the same stories. The chemo is probably in the tens of thousands of dollars. The drug company can’t have someone refusing to pay them.

  • Greg Straw

    Why don’t she just leave who care what some thug court says GO IN HIDING WHATS THE PROBLEM. FU&K THE STATE !!!

  • tom thumb

    The courts are corrupt, bought and paid for just like the rest of the criminal organizations, both at the federal , state and local.

  • Chris Sky

    Duhh… Obamacare just institutionalizes and legalizes the government to make the decision FOR YOU, AGAINST YOUR WILL

  • OldPoorRichard

    Sick care industry doctors would prescribe chemotherapy for flattened squirrels scraped off the pavement if they think they can tap into insurance. No liberty when corporate greed is backed up with the violence of the state.

  • S Loire King

    She needs to go into hiding. When will she turn 18? There are LOTS of people who will help her hide.

    • Rivenburg

      adults in MA have had this happen too. Refuse chemo & they come for your guns??????
      They claim by refusing chemo you are suidicidal, and they MUST “protect” you. Any excuse to push citizens around. effing ego-maniacs.

  • Vote You Down

    Then the hospital will bankrupt the family because they and the criminal pharmaceutical cartel will demand $100s of thousands in payments for the barbaric cut and burn forced “treatments.”

    It’s all about money. These sociopaths will kill her for profit.

  • Sooriamoorthy

    Piss off, you bloody fools who dare speak of the duty of the State in tthe US, as if such a thing existed.
    Chemotherapy is known to be ineffective and dangerous.
    Shut up and drop dead, you scum!
    Tomorrow, you’ll be ordering people to eat GMOs.

  • Sooriamoorthy

    Oh, I forgot to add that that drunk judge needs to be eliminated.

  • Tatiana Covington

    She should just get up and leave. I would support this, even if the result were her immediate death and she were my child.

    It’s no worse than being stupid enough to join the Army and get shot in something that is none of one’s damned business.

    • Jay

      Gee thanks for the support (from a Military Mom).
      My adult Military children are preppers as well, I AM proud of them–at least they aren’t on food stamps and are married (no milking the system like some family members who don’t marry and milk the welfare system for all they can get.)
      This world isn’t about what you can get for free, or whether my job or your job is a “stupid” one. It’s about gaining skills and working (even if it’s for yourself) and being a good person.

  • RJ O’Guillory

    …if I were the minor child….when it was time for the “medical experts” to come in the room and administer the treatment…I would calmly tell them that I certainly hope the treatment works…just long enough for me to regain my strength from the treatment…and seek them each out privately…for a “follow up” visit….and I would tell them…it doesn’t matter whether the “experts” were “right”…only that medical people violated my rights and my body…..that is what the “follow-up” visit would be about… same for any other person sent into inject, radiate or treat me in any way I had declined. See how many people want to volunteer to do the work…..

  • Sickofthesefascists!

    Just for clarification…this teenage girl is being restrained against her will and under 24/7 supervision by the CT DCFS and hospital staff. She is not able to flee like some commenters have suggested. The hospital has even taken away her cell phone and removed her phone land line from her hospital room. She has no rights at all at this point as she is being forcibly injected with chemotherapy treatments. If you find this story to be as disturbing as I do and see the threat to one’s personal liberty that this and other similar cases set a precedent for, I encourage you to call Children’s Hospital in CT to voice your displeasure: 860-545-9000.

      They are transferring callers to a recorded line where you listen to their policy then leave a message if you wish.

  • mirageseekr

    Well, they couldn’t allow people to go out and use those suppressed cures and getting healed now could they. People might start to wake up. I think we should start a church that encompasses the right to choose your medical care then when they try to pull this it would be protected under law.

    • Glenn Festog

      In a country that recognizes “Pastafarians” as a religion? Maybe. Or maybe they’ll treat you like Rastaferians because it can’t be a religion if it violates their right to steal your stuff and take your life for smoking flowers.

      • mirageseekr

        If spaghetti monster people can use the vale of religion, why not.

        • Glenn Festog

          What I’m saying is that the veil of religion is only allowed by the government as it sees fit, Rastaferians being a more recent example, the US Government sending troops to Utah to “modify” Morman beliefs in the 1800s was another.

  • MaybeYes

    Cannot find the ruling anywhere at the Connecticut Supreme Court. WTF??? http://www.jud.ct.gov/external/supapp/archiveAROsup15.htm

  • Glenn Festog

    Work where and save what in this economy? Free government handouts are only for illegals nowadays.

  • Jay

    Really laura m? My sons are Military, fought in the recent wars and are preppers. One just got stateside from a second desert deployment and the other (who goes to collage and works his “job”; your so-called WPA program) leaves next month. No, they don’t “owe” the gov’t six years……
    Have some respect for our fellow men and women!.

  • Denise

    If that same 17 yr old were to commit murder, she would without a doubt be tried as an adult. She’s intelligent enough to decide to take someone else’s life by court standards but not intelligent enough to decide what to do with her own?

  • Me

    Do you know what the cost of college is now a days? And maybe kids are lazy because they are being fed poisoned foods and pumped up with pharmaceuticals which effect every organ of the body.
