Republican Delegate John Welch of Virgina Beach introduced "Abraham's Law" today, in honor of Abraham Cherrix.
Cherrix is the 16-year-old who won a court battle last summer to forgo chemotherapy to treat his Hodgkin's Disease, a cancer of the lymphatic system.
A judge had threatened to force Cherrix to take conventional treatments and also take him away from his parents.
