The Doctors discuss the troubling case of a 20-year-old anorexic woman from New Jersey whose parents went to court in order to have her force-fed.
The judge in the case ruled the woman was incapable of making her own decisions and gave her parents the power to force-feed her in hopes of saving the woman's life.
Attorney Areva Martin explains that parents have the right to go to court and seek guardianship of their child -- even when the individual is an adult -- if they believe their child is incapable of making their own decisions. She says she "applauds" the parents in this case and feels they may have saved their daughter's life.
Areva explains in this case the judge reportedly found the woman to be delusional and had impaired judgment. She also says the woman, whose weight dipped as low as 60 pounds, has reportedly been able to gain 15 pounds.
The Doctors note that anorexia is a psychiatric disorder and has the highest rate of mortality of any psychiatric disorder, with around 10 percent losing their life to it.
