Last week I commented on a Facebook post, about the flu, by Boston Children’s Hospital with the following.
Just don’t take your kid to Children’s for treatment. They have a history of stealing children for psychiatric treatment. #freejustina
Over the past few days I’ve noticed that I’ve been banned from commenting on their posts. Then they had the hubris to put the post below up today.
Really, “what moment of victory” are people especially thankful for when it comes to Boston Children’s Hospital?
Until the Justina Pelletier case, that would be when they performed a successful open heart surgery on my, then, four year old brother.
Now, all I can think of is what they did to the Pelletier family, and have yet to apologize for.
It is my hope that Governor-elect Baker and his HHS Secretary Ms. Sudders will focus like a laser-beam on Children’s Hospital and their frequent stealing of children from parents over disagreements in treatment. Then using those children as test subjects without their parent’s or a court’s permission.
That is the “moment of victory” I, and many like me in the Commonwealth will be thankful for.
