Further thoughts In Re: Cassandra C.

I should have read this before my previous post. It appears there is good reason to doubt that Cassandra C has the maturity to make medical decisions (i.e. it looks like Mom is running the show). Still, it’s worth using this case to think about what defines a mature minor and whether young people who meet these criteria should be able to refuse life saving treatment.
