In Billy’s cancer case, there is no justification what so ever for the state take Billy away from his parents because his parents supported Billy’s decision rather than continuing with the chemotherapy. If the State was going to take Billy away from his parents and put him through chemotherapy again, he would probably escape again from the pain. Since chemotherapy has side effects and does not cure 100%, the state should not be considering the only option for treating cancer.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
