(NaturalNews) The US justice system has turned over a new leaf in judicial insanity with the recent murder conviction of Kristen LaBrie, a 38-year-old woman whose autistic son died of cancer in 2009. According to Essex District Attorney's Office in Massachusetts, LaBrie was found guilty on all charges made against her, including attempted murder, permitting serious bodily injury to a disabled person, permitting substantial injury to a child, and reckless endangerment of a child -- all for making the personal medical choice to stop administering deadly chemotherapy drugs to her son (http://www.naturalnews.com/031989_chemothera...).

"I was really scared that he just had had it. He was just not capable of getting through any more chemotherapy ... he was very, very fragile," LaBrie testified in court, referencing the fact that the chemotherapy drugs were essentially killing her son more than the actual cancer was. "I did not want to have to make him get any more sick. If he got any sicker than he was, I thought he would die, and I thought that he would die with me at home."

LaBrie faces up to 20 years in prison for "attempted murder," up to ten years for "permitting serious bodily injury to a disabled person," and up to five years each for "permitting substantial injury to a child" and "reckless endangerment of a child."

The case is a chilling indicator of just how out-of-control the medical-industrial complex has become. Chemotherapy, as many NaturalNews readers know, has a dismal success rate. The poison treatment more often than not kills cancer patients more quickly than they would otherwise die if given no treatment at all. And yet making the personal choice to avoid this fatal poison can get you convicted of murder.

Interestingly, when 27-year-old Gary Foster of Essex, UK, died as a result of chemotherapy several years ago, those administering the drug trial he participated in were not convicted of murder. Instead, the courts merely agreed on a settlement (hush money) to reimburse the family for their loss (http://www.naturalnews.com/030966_chemothera...).

Essex Assistant District Attorney Kate B. MacDougall led the charges against LaBrie, and Superior Court Judge Richard Welch presided over the case. If you wish to contact the Essex District Attorney's Office to express your thoughts, you can do so by calling (978) 745-6610.
