What’s the harm?
A baby died after his parents denied him conventinal medical treatment. Just one example of “a lack of critical thinking”, according to the website What’s the harm?
An inquest in London on Tuesday recorded a verdict of death by natural causes on six-month-old Cameron, who died of a treatable disease after his parents refused to allow him to be given conventional medicine. Increasingly, with the rise in popularity of complementary medicine these situations are going to arise. The coroner expressed concern at the baby’s treatment by the parents – one of whom was a homeopathic practitioner.
If you kill yourself through your own stupidity, maybe the world’s better off without you, but when you kill someone else, shouldn’t that be manslaughter?
