In the famous Cruzan Supreme Ct. ruling, which emphasizes bodily integrity as fundamental legal right, Rehnquist cites an earlier case holding that “a child, in common with an adult, has a substantial liberty interest in not being restrained unnecessarily for medical treatment.”
I wonder if this counts ...
The previous tweet shows a child strapped into a so-called “circumstraint” (“restrained”) so that he will be immobilized while undergoing a genital surgery that is not only “unnecessary medical treatment,” but that is not even treatment (he is healthy).
