After some chemotherapy treatments in August 2013, Sarah begged her parents to stop them because of the terrible side effects. Her parents wanted to take her home but Akron Children’s Hospital insisted that she would die without further chemotherapy. After several weeks and a court case, the parents secretly took Sarah out of Medina to an undisclosed location. The December article and the 2017 article pick up the story. After reading them, answer these questions reflectively: How does this case illustrate the principle of subsidiarity? Is it your judgment that Akron Children’s Hospital violated the parents’ rights and this principle? Give your reasons. If you were the parent, what would you do and why? How does this case also illustrate aspects of human dignity and autonomy? What about Sarah’s right to life?
