And while in the special case of child-cancer I would tend to agree that survival should be prioritized, in this world we don't have the right to overrule parental decisions on this kind of issue....
I really don't know where you live but it doesn't sound like a first world/industrialized country. You clearly don't live in the USA, becasue you would recognize the words "Child Endangerment" and know it's a Felony. There are currently many parent(s) behind bars for denying care to their childeren. At least in my memory, first recall it being a problem for christian scientists, now days scienctoligists and any extreme religion.
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
