What bothers me most about this case is that it assumes that Western medicine is always the best course of action. Western medicine tends to be reactionary rather than holistic, and can often prove extremely harmful to the patient. While I do not agree with the decision the Worthingtons made, could parents now be prosecuted for treating their child with homeopathic care, acupuncture, or other alternative medicine? As someone who has often found homeopathic remedies to be the most effective option, I find this ruling frightening.
