A whole month ago, I wrote much about Abraham Cherrix. You remember, right? He was that kid who refused chemo to pursue alternative therapy. Reader’s Digest version is that the state stepped in and demanded that he submit to chemo. The state even divided custody between Social Services and Abraham’s parents. The matter was reversed by a judge and set for hearing August 16, 2006.
Well, today is August 16th. I had marked it in my calendar, but the funny thing is that I find hardly anything about it online. I saw a short blurb on the evening news, but the report may as well have been a Boy Scout recognition for the amount of time it was given. One exception is Homeland Stupidity. Dana over at Homeland Stupidity did a great job covering the story, so go look there for details. For the lazy version, here goes:
Abraham has a half-win. He gets to pick his own doc who specializes in both Oncology and alternative meds. Great for him- sort of. The bad news is that he must provide his treatment results to the court until he is 18. Big friggin whoop! He is still not free. He settled for the watered down scotch version of freedom. Worse news is that nobody cares anymore. Like all things in MSM, it is shock, awe and move on. And, the worst part is that America accepts that as journalism.
