Court sides with Ohio hospital on Amish girl care
The Associated Press
MEDINA, Ohio — An appeals court in Ohio has sided with a hospital that's seeking to force a 10-year-old Amish girl to resume chemotherapy after her parents decided to stop the treatments.
The girl's parents say that the chemotherapy's effects were terrible and that they're now using "natural" medicines, such as herbs and vitamins, and consulting with another doctor.
