Pharma-terrorism in Connecticut: Connecticut Supreme Court upholds ruling that teen must undergo chemo'therapy' [poisoning-for-profit] | 8 Jan 2015 | The Connecticut Supreme Court upheld a prior ruling Thursday that a 17-year-old cancer patient cannot refuse chemotherapy treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. The state argued that the teen lacked competency extended to maturity, as well, and that they did not believe she understood the severity of her prognosis. The teen…identified by police as Cassandra Callender, ran away after two treatments in November and, with the support of her mother, refused any more when she returned. The teen believes the chemotherapy will do more damage to her body than the cancer will, according to the Hartford Courant. Connecticut Supreme Court rejects 'mature minor doctrine' and rules a 17-year-old girl with Hodgkin's lymphona can be forced to undergo chemotherapy.
