    A Massachusetts woman has been convicted of attempted murder for withholding cancer drugs from her son.

    Kristen LaBrie's son Jeremy Fraser, who was autistic, died in 2009 at age nine of leukaemia, the court heard.

    Prosecutors said she had stopped giving the boy medication because she was angry at having to raise him herself.

    What isn't wrong with people? You'd be surprised at what people do when they are faced with situations or problems that they don't want to be apart of.

    People are used to taking the easy way out, this is just another example of someone doing just that.

    I guess you could call this passive euthanasia and in that case I think it's horrible and disappointing that that woman would do that.
