Judge blocks bid to force Amish girl to have chemo

AP - A judge has again blocked an Ohio hospital from forcing a 10-year-old Amish girl to resume chemotherapy after her parents decided to stop the treatments.

The order comes a week after an appeals court sent the case back to the judge and told him to give more consideration to the request by Akron Children's Hospital.

The hospital wants limited guardianship of Sarah Hershberger to decide whether the Medina County girl should continue treatments for leukemia. Doctors believe Sarah will die without chemotherapy.

But Judge John Lohn said in his ruling that not allowing the parents to make medical decisions for their daughter would take away their rights, and said there is no guarantee the chemotherapy would be successful.

The girl's family stopped treatment because it was making her extremely sick.
