(NaturalNews) Refusing to comply with state-sanctioned protocols for cancer treatment -- even when they cause immense pain and suffering, and possibly even a more rapid death -- can get you tried for murder if a loved-one under your care with cancer ends up dying. A Massachusetts woman currently faces murder charges based on testimony from her son's doctor who claims that the mother did not properly administer chemotherapy drugs to her son, thus causing his death.

According to a report in The Boston Globe, Kristen LaBrie allegedly stopped giving her son Jeremy his chemotherapy medication, at least for a time, which plaintiffs say resulted in his death. LaBrie has personally denied the allegations on numerous occasions, but her lawyer has since admitted that LaBrie did, indeed, stop giving her son the drugs. However, he claims she did so because she could no longer bear to watch the pain and suffering the drugs were inflicting on her son.

"Her mental strength weakened, her objectivity waned," said attorney Kevin James concerning LaBrie's decision. "She made a decision to stop giving him medication. The Commonwealth (Massachusetts) wants to make this tragic mistake a criminal act."

Leading the charge against LaBrie is Dr. Alison Friedmann, the pediatric oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) that began treating Jeremy for cancer back in 2006. According to Friedmann, LaBrie only filled a small portion of the chemotherapy prescriptions she ordered, and that the boy's cancer ended up coming back as a result.

Despite the fact that Friedman testified to having advised LaBrie to temporarily stop giving her son the chemotherapy drugs in 2008 so he could effectively recover from being hospitalized for the flu -- which illustrates perfectly that chemotherapy drugs completely destroy the immune system -- LaBrie is still being charged with assault and battery on a disabled person with injury, assault and battery on a child with substantial injury, reckless endangerment of a child, and murder.

In other words, if you fail to comply with the orders of your conventional doctor and the state -- even if doing so inflicts pain and suffering on you or your family members, and violates your personal freedom of health choice -- then you could be charged with murder.
