The article focuses on three recent decrees issued by the Courts of Appeals of Rome, Milan, and Catania relating to the delicate matter of the legitimacy of the limitation of parental responsibility in relation to health choices regarding minor children. In compliance with the regulations introduced by law no. 219/2017, all the three Courts of Appeals ruled in favor of Jehovah’s Witness parents whose parental responsibilities had been limited or suspended based on the mere fact that they had requested that their children not be treated with blood transfusions.
