Amish Family Chemo Stirs Up Controversy

Jan 22 2014, 6:37am CST | by , in News | Other Stuff

An Amish family with a Leukemia-afflicted daughter went into hiding to avoid the long arm of the law. Their daughter was being given chemo treatment against their will. The decision to forgo the allopathic treatment has stirred up a lot of controversy. The whole question revolves around the jurisdiction and scope of the law in private matters.

Amish Family Chemo Stirs Up Controversy

The tragic case of an Amish family, whose prepubescent daughter Sarah has Leukemia, has stirred up a hornet’s nest. After they were hounded by physicians to continue the chemotherapy sessions, the family went away to some far off place in order to avoid the forced medical rigmarole. 

It had almost become a police state scenario. Their daughter was facing a day by day deterioration that had left her weak and a shadow of her former self. They wanted to try a more natural cure. But the law had stepped in and was threatening them with legal action if they refused to conform.   

The Amish stick to their olden ways and traditional lifestyle that is diametrically opposed to modernity and all things modern. They have their constitutional rights too as a minority living within the United States. And the ironic thing was that the herbal and vitamin-based treatment Sarah’s parents chose as an alternative to chemotherapy had almost gotten rid of her disease

Yet the state apparatus as well as the law agencies are adamant that their daughter deserves chemotherapy (even if the cure is worse than the disease). The main point is that if cancer is a fatal disease, shouldn’t ordinary citizens have the right to let Nature take its toll instead of resorting to such extreme interventionist medical models as chemotherapy?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
