Un juez ha autorizado a un hospital de Montreal a realizar transfusiones de sangre para tratar a una adolescente de 14 años con cÃ¡ncer, a pesar de su rechazo porque es testigo de JehovÃ¡. Al permitir las transfusiones, el tribunal dictaminÃ³ que es lÃcito proteger a los niÃ±os, a veces "contra sÃ mismos", cuando sus decisiones pueden ser fatales. Bajo la ley de Quebec, los menores de 14 aÃ±os pueden rechazar ciertos servicios de salud. Sin embargo, si los padres del niÃ±o o un hospital -en este caso, el Centro Universitario de Salud McGill- quieren administrar esos servicios, pueden solicitar el permiso de un juez. El juez de la Corte Superior, Lukasz Granosik, dijo en su decisiÃ³n que la adolescente es "una chica brillante y articulada" que tiene mucho Ã©xito en la escuela y tiene una "madurez mÃ¡s allÃ¡ de su edad biolÃ³gica", pero que aÃºn no estaba madura para decidir, y estaba bajo la presiÃ³n de sus padres que tambiÃ©n son testigos de JehovÃ¡. Granosik tambiÃ©n seÃ±alÃ³ que la niÃ±a hablÃ³ de la muerte con "renuncia", a pesar de tener un 97 por ciento de posibilidades de recuperaciÃ³n si se sometiÃ³ a tratamiento. En junio de 2017, descubriÃ³ que tenÃa linfoma de Hodgkin, una forma de cÃ¡ncer, y tuvo que comenzar la quimioterapia. Este tratamiento, sin embargo, a menudo requiere transfusiones de sangre. Sin ella, la paciente podrÃa morir o sufrir un daÃ±o neurolÃ³gico irreversible, dijo su mÃ©dico. Los Testigos de JehovÃ¡ no aceptan transfusiones de sangre. La decisiÃ³n del juez Granosik fue rendida el 1 de septiembre. Â
Guest posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsA judge has authorized a Montreal hospital to perform blood transfusions to treat a 14-year-old teen with cancer, despite her refusal because she is a Jehovah's Witness. By allowing transfusions, the court ruled that it is lawful to protect children, sometimes "against themselves," when their decisions can be fatal. Under Quebec law, minors over the age of 14 can refuse certain health services. However, if the child’s parents or a hospital--in this case, the McGill University Health Centre--wants to administer those services, they can seek a judge’s permission. Superior Court Judge Lukasz Granosik said in his decision that the teen is "a brilliant, articulate girl" who is very successful at school and has a "maturity beyond her biological age," but that she was not yet mature enough to decide for herself, and was under pressure from her parents who are also Jehovah's Witnesses. Granosik also noted the girl spoke of death with "resignation," despite having a 97 percent chance of recovery if she underwent treatment. In June 2017, she found out she had Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer, and had to begin chemotherapy. This treatment, however, often requires blood transfusions. Without it, the patient could die or suffer irreversible neurological damage, her doctor said. Jehovah’s Witnesses do not accept blood transfusions. Judge Granosik’s decision was rendered on Sept. 1. - With a report from The Canadian Press
As the new Tesla Model 3 electric car was unveiled last week, hundreds of people in Montreal lined up to make a $1,000 deposit to reserve one of the cars. Montrealer Guillaume Tardif stood in line for three hours in the rain outside the Tesla dealership on 5350 Ferrier Street. Despite being caught in the bad weather, Tardif said it was worth the wait. "We weren't prepared for this weather. We thought they would set up tents or something instead of making us freeze," he said. 'We're buying a dream'- Guillaume Tardif, Soon-to-be Tesla owner "I worry if I wait too long that we won't get the government incentives. If this becomes a mass market car like they think it will, then the incentives are going to be pulled out. So if you save $8,000 by being here this morning it was worth it." Details about the car were unveiled by Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk in Hawthorne, California on Thursday and more than 130,000 people have already put down payments on the vehicle. The Tesla Model 3 electric car was unveiled in Hawthorne, California Thursday night. (Tesla Motors Canada) The going price for a Tesla Model 3 starts at $35,000 US and Musk confirmed the new model will go at least 345 kilometres on a single charge. The vehicles are expected to go into production in 2017 and buyers in Quebec are jumping at the chance to take advantage of the provincial rebate. Quebec buyers are eligible for rebates between $6,000 and $8,000, while buyers in Ontario are eligible for up to $14,000. Like many, Tardif put his deposit down site-unseen. He's not worried about what the final product will be like. "We're the early adopters. Right now we're buying something, even on paper, we're buying a dream." Others travelled from out of town to reserve their spot in line. 'This is the future' Ian McKay drove down from Ottawa on Thursday to pay his deposit. " partly because it's fun to do and partly because they are making them to order," McKay said. "So it makes a big difference getting a reservation, because otherwise you'll be waiting months and months while all the orders get processed before you can buy off the line." McKay said he has faith in the company's product, considering their successes with the Model S and Model X. "They've proven that they can make a good car off the bat," he said. Millie Amoros went by the dealership last November to test drive the Model S, before deciding to put the deposit down on the newest version. "It drives amazing. If [the Model 3] is anything like what I drove it's a good deal," she said. "I do think this is the future." Source:
