Interesting ethical dilemma

Child with mind frozen by disease at 3 months of development has body growth halted at age 7 and 65 pounds Case for halting growth made to save child discomfort of menstruation and to enable easier care by care-givers.

These kinds of things I view practically and pragmatically. If those who object were willing to raise the funds to enable superior care without the treatment, then they might have the right to intervene and offer that option. But if the caregivers are on their own then they have the right to make what seems like one of a few ethical choices.
