5 July 2017 - This is the kind of pissing contest in our modern medical system that leaves me cold to their version of ethics. This situation was initiated and perpetuated by pen-pushers and bean counters that do not have to sit and see the child die. How low has humanity sunk when the basic instinct of a parent to do everything possible to save their child is pompously usurped by a hospital, which promptly decided the child must die? Their farcical defense that their hands are tied by a court decision was brought on by the fact that the parents had to revert to the courts to save their child from this callous admin decision, and lost. This is very reminiscent of the child that was "kidnapped" from the hospital by the parents and taken to the Czech Republic for proton beam therapy which was unavailable in the UK, but could also not receive official pen-pusher permission for funding to do so in the Czech Republic, and became fugitives in the process. Ashya King is now cancer free and a strapping young boy still in need of therapy which, and you probably guessed it, the NHS refuses to provide. And this is the system that wants to dictate to, and legislate Complimentary and Alternative medicine practitioners? In the CAMs industry in general there are not shareholders for whom you must maximize profits, or bloody greedy pen-pushers that function outside of their human ethics to turn a profit at the cost of a child's life. But then this is the system that we have allowed to take over, and still allow to perpetrate these actions with our consent by keeping quiet.
