Well that is crazy! Sounds like parents are loosing rights everywhere you go these days! If in fact the parents are not in the wrong here! That's really not good!

There is probably more to this story than is being put in the media. She is probably a ward of the state now and something like this would not happen unless the child's life was in danger.

Ok ...I did a bit of research. This is truly a bizarre story and it unless something else comes out then yes...people need to be concerned. Here is a link:

I live not far from this hospital and it has always held a very good reputation. I have been treated at that hospital and so have many that I know and I've never heard such bizarre complaints against them. I think I would have to have more details such as what &LadyGuinevere mentioned below. There are religious groups that don't believe in medical treatments at all and when a child is diagnosed with a life threatning illness and the doctors want to give treatment that could save or at least prolong the life of a child and the parents refuse then yes...these things have gone to court. It's not that the doctors could definitely save the child's life but more that without treatment, there is no chance at all.

It never says what the child is diagnosed with. It never says if the parents were taking proper measures to deal with the illness or condition. There are some religios belief groups that will not do any medical things for a child that is sick. It doesn't state that ths is one of them

Wow, that is one of the craziest things I have heard. What ever happened to parental rights?

I would go crazy if a hospital held either of my two kids captive. You are right, they have no right to kidnap her. The parents only wants what's best for their daughter.
