An Ohio appeals court is again siding with a hospital that is seeking to force a 10-year-old Amish girl to resume chemotherapy after her parents decided to stop the treatments.
The court ordered that a registered nurse take over limited guardianship for the girl and decide whether she should continue treatments for leukemia.
The appeals court ruling issued last week says the wishes and beliefs of the parents can't outweigh the rights of the state to protect the child. The decision says the guardian should be appointed right away.
The girl's parents, who live in northeast Ohio's Medina County, stopped chemotherapy because they say the effects were terrible. They say they opted for "natural" medicines.
Doctors at Akron Children's Hospital say the girl will die without chemotherapy.
