I’ve reported in the past about several cases of child kidnapping by medical officials. Perhaps one of the most notable was the case of Justina Pelletier who was kidnapped and held against her parents’ will for 16 torturous months. Justina had been previously diagnosed with a mitochondrial disease. She was being successfully treated and was leading an active and normal life of a 15 year old teenage girl.
However, doctors at Boston’s Children’s Hospital took it upon themselves to disagree with the earlier diagnosis and treatment. They said that she did not have a mitochondrial disease, but what she had was a mental illness known as samatoform disease. When Justina’s parents disagreed with them, they suddenly assumed custody of the teenager. Justina’s parents were only allowed to visit their daughter for one hour a week and that had to be supervised. After one year of care under the Boston Children’s Hospital, Justina had deteriorated to being paralyzed from the waist down, her speech had slurred and she had trouble swallowing to the degree that her parents feared she would choke to death. These are all symptomatic of the mitochondrial disease she had been previously treated for. After 16 grueling months and numerous court hearings, her parents were finally able to regain custody of Justina and take her home.
Don’t think these are rare and isolated occurrences. Under the oppressive socialist rules and regulations of Obamacare, the kidnapping of children is becoming more common than once thought possible.
I just heard about the case of four-month old Kathryn Blalock who was physicaly snatched from the arms of her mother by CPS and staff at UMB Children’s Hospital in Lubbock, Texas. According to Medical Kidnap:
“Kathryn was born on June 9, 2014, with a rare genetic condition called Pierre Robin Sequence. She also has a cleft soft palate and feeding problems that go along with it. Originally, Kathryn was diagnosed with craniostenosis, an abnormality in the fusion of the skull plates. That diagnosis was later thrown out, but now the doctors have gone back to the original diagnosis.”
“She has experienced a number of medical problems in her short life, but despite the confusion, her mother has always followed the doctors’ directives, trusting that they knew best. Now that system has turned on her and her daughter…”
“In late July, Kathryn began to have seizures.”
“On September 4, baby Kathryn had an ALTE (acute life threatening event) where she stopped breathing. Her family took her to the local hospital, where they airlifted her to UMC in Lubbock. That is where mother and baby would spend the next two weeks. It was determined that they would do surgery to insert a gbutton in order to insert a long-term feeding tube into her stomach. It would remain until she could have surgery to correct the cleft palate.”
“The surgery went well, but by the 15th, Kathryn began urinating more than she was taking in. She underwent a number of tests. On the 17th, she threw up 5 times in a 15 minute period. Just before this, her fortified breastmilk had been switched to formula. After more tests were performed, Kathryn was released to go home with her mother.”
“During the entire two week hospital stay, pictures of her show a happy baby. Her mother reports episodes of baby giggles, even in her sleep. With all the surgeries, and tests, meds, and wires, Kathryn was a happy and secure little girl, as can be seen in numerous pictures. Her mother spent the entire two weeks by her side, holding and nurturing her, only leaving the room for brief trips to the cafeteria.”
“Though they couldn’t figure out the cause of the seizures, it appeared that the medications were getting the seizures under control. The nurses showed Lorie how to give Kathryn the proper dosage of medications via the gbutton. They went home on Thursday, September 18, after a two-week ordeal.”
“It was short-lived. Only two days later, on the 20th, Kathryn again began having seizures, and was rushed to UMC.”
“The next day, CPS and the staff at UMC informed Lorie that they were taking custody of Kathryn over the medical condition. She was only out of the hospital’s care for two days between September 4th and the 21st. Her mother had to beg to be able to at least say goodbye…”
At the time of this writing, the hospital still has custody of little Kathryn and her parents are devastated. They are experiencing one of the worst horrors that any parent can go through and they are not alone.
In Obama’s socialistic society, children belong to the government, not to the parents. They are wards of the state and the state will do what it wants with them including taking them away from their parents and determining what they believe is best for the child. Welcome to a new and frightening America.
