“Our Belief Is To Put This In God’s Hands”
Israel’s parents, Nathaniel Stinson and Jonee Fonseca, are waiting for a federal court decision. They have requested a preliminary injunction to stop Kaiser Permanente from taking him off a ventilator.
Israel was being treated for an asthma attack when he suddenly went into cardiac arrest. Tests then showed that he became brain dead from the shock to his body. The parents have lawyered up, arguing that denying their son medical treatment is a full violation of his rights.
The parents say that by removing Israel’s breathing tube, it would violate their beliefs as Christians.
