Queensland Apex Court Takes Side of Child

Details of a strange case have come forth, which was being heard at Queensland's Supreme Court. The case was filed by doctors, who told that a woman, who has delivered a baby has been suffering from hepatitis B infection and if vaccine is not given to the child immediately then he can also be infected with the disease.

Parents, whose baby was just 40 hours old, said they did not want their child to have vaccination, as it was against their religious belief. Justice Jean Dalton was surprised to know that parents were not bothered about the health of their child, but were more concerned about their beliefs.

Religious belief is quite a sensitive topic, and generally, people prefer not to comment on it. Irrespective of the religious belief, it is very important that child's security is given the utmost importance and same thing was being done by Dalton.

He immediately ordered parents to go to hospital and get their child vaccinated. Child's father was of the view that there are very less chances that his child will develop any sort of infection. "When there is a clash between the parents' beliefs and the health and wellbeing of a just-born child, it is appropriate the court takes the side of the child", said Civil libertarian Terry O'Gorman QC.
