people have the right to refuse treatments in the United States of America
I know this...
but in the United States of America does a kid have the right to refuse treatment even if the rightful guardian of the kid insists that the kid receives treatment
by kid I mean a 16 year old kid...
This is medical treatment by the way...
No, he is under the age of 18, so therefore is not considered and adult and capable of making a decision like that for himself. His rightful guardian must decide...that is unless he is emancipated from his guardian(s) by a court of law. Which, by the way, is a very long and drawn out process...and usually denied.
