Judge’s Rule Will Force Family to Use Conventional Cancer Doctors and Treatments for Their Son Against Their Better Judgment: Orders Parents to Comply with Conventional Oncologist’s Cancer Treatments for their 13 Year Old Son who has Hodgkins Lymphoma finding that the State of Minnesota has a Compelling State Interest Sufficient to Overcome Parents’ Wishes Regarding Approach to Health Care and their Constitutional Free Exercise and Due Process rights.
This ruling is a missed opportunity, the opportunity to reflect the facts and the law in their most truthful and expansive context, the whole story, as the family has had to live out this story, along with millions of other Americans and parents using holistic health care.
On May 15th, 2009, Daniel Hauser, a 13 years old, who is refusing six additional rounds of chemotherapy for his Hodgkin Lymphoma, and who is using holistic, natural, complementary and alternative health care for his condition, was deemed in need of protective services by a Court, because his parents, Colleen and Anthony Hauser support their son’s decision to refuse chemotherapy, having a long history of using natural medicines. The Hausers are dairy farmers in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota.
The National Health Freedom Coalition issues the following statement:
The parents of Danny Hauser have acted responsibly as parents. The Hausers have studied their many options for treating their child’s serious illness and have made the decision that the natural, non-toxic, and holistic approach to healing gives their son his best chance for long term survival and recovery. The Hausers have learned that there are many less toxic methods available across the country and around the world to restore the body to health when it has cancer. The Hauser parents are acting responsibly and their right to make this decision in the best interest of their child should be protected. The Hauser case is an example of the need to better protect the right of individuals, including parents acting on behalf of a minor child, to choose their own method of healing, whether conventional medicine or holistic approaches.
The Hausers are heroes for health freedom. Between the medical issues and the legal issues, the Hausers are walking the path of all health freedom advocates and all health-seekers discerning their best health care options and fighting for their constitutional rights to carry them out.
National Health Freedom Coalition (NHFC) supports Daniel Hauser and his parents Colleen and Anthony Hauser. Our mission statement is: “to promote access to all health care information, services, treatments and products that the people deem beneficial for their own health and survival; to promote an understanding of the laws and factors impacting the right to access; and to promote the health of the people of this nation.”.
