The Radio Adventure - refusing medical treatment, and guest lawyer Emily Hart

Tuesday, 14th April 2015

We all have the right to refuse treatment - but what if you are a pregnant woman and the refusal places your unborn child at risk? Where do you stand on this issue?
On tonight's Radio Adventure we'll look at the medicine and law around the recent case from Sydney where a pregnant Jehovah's Witness refused a blood transfusion with tragic consequences.

Also, our special guest is lawyer Emily Hart who has set up a legal clinic in a hospital - talk about putting the cat amongst the pigeons!
