A Skagit County judge ruled Wednesday that a 14-year-old boy with leukemia who refused potentially life-saving blood transfusions cannot be forced to get them.

Dennis Lindberg died last night at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle.
Dennis was of the Jehovah’s Witness faith. The faith prohibits transfusions of whole blood.

Lindberg’s legal guardians could have intervened, but they are also Jehovah’s Witness and refused.

Do you agree with the ruling that the 14 year-old should not be forced to get a blood transfusion?
