Children need a voice in India

In the West they have systems in place to handle such situations, where the hospital can approach the court and ask the court to take custody of the child and ensure that treatment is given.

In India we urgently need to get such a system in place. Laws need to be framed to treat children against the wishes of the parents if an expert medical board and the court feels that it is in the best interest of the child. Decisions need to be taken quickly because in life threatening illness we don't have much time. There is a need to set up child protection service units across the country. Many children are abused by their families or strangers in this country but it never comes out, these children suffer silently. Child rights and protection need to be given more importance in India.
