still doing my part to spread the word that Care2 has said they'll discontinue polls; no effective date given

Yes. The child inherited the religion from the parents.

Never! Parents who refuse medical intervention for religious reasons should be put in jail for endangering their child's life.

Nils Lunde,

The child is not of age to I choose any religion. If the technology exists to save the child's life and the parents refuse they ARE effectively saying they want the child dead.

So my answer is a resounding yes.
