Court Orders Amish Girl back to ChemoTherapy Against Parents Wishes

An appeals court has ruled that a 10 year old Ohio Amish child can be forced to resume chemotherapy against her parents wishes.

The appeals court is now expected to appoint Maria Schimer, lawyer and former nurse, as medical guardian for the child.
