OUTRAGE! 15 Year Old Girl is Stolen Away From Her Parents By Boston Children’s Hospital
Justina Pelletier was a typical teen, who loved to ice skate, laugh, and spend time with her family. She did however, have medical issues. She had been diagnosed with mitochondrial disease, a genetic disease that affects your strength and coordination. With a couple of complicated surgeries and medicines, she was able to live a normal life. Then in February of 2013, she came down with the flu. That is when their nightmare began.
Her parents checked her into Boston Children’s Hospital, where they diagnosed Justina with somatoform disorder. Somatoform disorder is a mental disorder. The parents questioned the diagnosis, since she had been doing so well under her previous treatment. The doctors ordered security to escort Justina’s parents out of the hospital and within four days had a court order removing her from her parent’s care. They are permitted one hour visitation and two twenty-minute phone calls per week.
Dean Hokanson, a West Hartford psychologist, who has treated Justina for the past five years, testified at the first hearing. After the hearing, he said, “They were actually being accused of being too active in pursuing healthcare matters for their child.” If this sounds familiar, it is. Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm’s brother and Obama’s Obamacare advisor is quoted as saying, “Some doctors take the Hippocratic oath too seriously.” Under liberals, you are expected to blindly follow where they lead and emotions and caring have no place in medicine.
Boston Children’s Hospital refused to make a comment for Fox News but discharge documents gave some insight into why the hospital acted as it did:
“Due to concerns regarding Justina’s regressive behavior changes around her family, the multiple medical procedures and care episodes she has been through … and both parents’ resistance towards recommended treatment plans for Justina … a child protection team was convened.”
The family provided proof to Fox that every procedure and medication was sanctioned by her doctor Tufts Medical Center specialist Dr. Mark Korson. Tufts refused to let Korson speak to the investigative reporters, but her parents, Lou and Linda, showed them a letter from Dr. Korson to their lawyer, “I am dismayed. … It feels like Justina’s treatment team is out to prove the diagnosis at all costs. … The team has demanded that Justina be removed from the home. … This represents the most severe and intrusive intervention a patient can undergo … for a clinical hunch.”
There is nothing else they can do before their next court date, which is December 5th, 2013.
