State of Michigan Sues Parents to Force Chemo on Cancer-free Child

UPDATE March, 2012: State of Michigan Appeals Case Against Parents to Force Chemo on Cancer-free Child

UPDATE 12/21/2011 CASE DISMISSED! From WoodTV.com:

Judge Solka wrote in his ruling, “The court concludes as a matter of law that Jacob’s parents have not been negligent in making decisions about his (Jacob’s) course of treatment…

“The court is not making a finding that Jacob does not have cancer. A second opinion of a pediatric oncologist on additional treatment would be reasonable and should be considered by the parents…

“These decisions are better made in a clinical setting without resort to the courts. This is a physician-patient issue. The court should become involved only if an impasse is reached. The court does not find such an impasse here that the state should intervene and the family subjected to the rigors and uncertain outcome of a jury trial.”

Original Story:

Jacob Stieler was diagnosed with cancer back in March of 2011. After chemo and radiation treatment, multiple scans indicate he’s cancer free. However, his doctors have ordered further treatment–something Jacob and his parents oppose. Now the State of Michigan is taking the Jacob’s parents to court, charging them with neglect.

From the Stieler’s blog at hopeforjacob.org:

July 18th

Wednesday, I got a phone call from the social worker at the hospital where Jacob has been.   She informed me since we are refusing radiation for Jacob, they would be filing a petition for court.  I was in shock!  Well, not totally.  In shock for the fact that my son in CANCER-FREE!!!  Anyway, Friday morning comes and I am woke up by the sound of Child Protective Services knocking on our door.  I was disgusted to find out that the hospital lied and said that he would have a 0% chance of survival if he didn’t follow through with it (that number was NEVER given to me).  Second, they with-held the fact that his PET Scan came back clear and he is, in fact, cancer-free.   I am disgusted by the fact that they were deceitful.  What happened to parent’s rights?  We are not being foolish and not taking further action with Jacob.  We are taking him to a place to build up his immune system, get some healthy weight back on his bones and he will have multiple therapies to heal his worn body.    The fact that they want to give him almost 2 months of radiation plus 6 months more of chemo – both of which cause cancer – when no cancer is present, is completely shocking!  Please be praying for all of us!  Jacob is scared and worried!   He already told me that if they make him do chemo and radiation, that he will kill himself!  Satan sure is working overtime, but God is in control!!!

October 14th

First things first, Jacob is doing wonderful!  He is happy and healthy, going to school full time and loving life!!!  He turned 10 years old a couple weeks ago and was able to go bow-hunting October 1st.  He shot a 6-pt. buck and was ecstatic!!  I’ve been hunting for years and never got one.  He certainly deserves it though.

In the meantime, we’ve been checked-up on by CPS for the past 3 months.  “Just doin’ their job” while the case is still open.   It wasn’t going anywhere….CPS couldn’t find a reason for medical neglect like the hospital was claiming and either could the prosecuting attorney.  That sure didn’t stop the hospital from whining and got another big children’s hospital involved to complain, which is also downstate (I’m not supposed to mention names, but I’m sure you can all figure it out).   Doctors from both hospitals acted very irrational and immature because apparently everyone up here “is incompetent – they don’t know how to handle a case such as this”.  Well, DHS ended up filing a petition.  We have been to court a few times.   Crazy things keep happening to keep it from going further.  We’re already on our second judge.

Yesterday we went to court again.  Had a useless meeting first and then the lawyers met with the new judge.  There is now an actual trial set for the first week of December.  There will be a jury.  This trial is for two things.  First, they are still pushing to have Jacob have 6 more months of chemotherapy and 2 months of radiation.  Two of the chemotherapy drugs that he was on and would be on are mustard gas – yes, chemical warfare.  Another one is nicknamed “red death” and can potentially cause major heart damage.  Another has chloroform in it and the other two are just as capable of causing cancer.  Yes…it’s all POISON!  And I’m sure most of you know how horrible radiation is.   Oh, and did I forget to mention again that Jacob is CANCER-FREE!!!!  Yes, he had another PET Scan a few weeks ago and still NO CANCER!   They truly believe that poisoning my child is the best thing for his health.  It doesn’t matter that we have doctors currently keeping any eye on him.  It doesn’t matter that he’s had a lifestyle change and we’re doing multiple things to keep him healthy.  It doesn’t matter that we’re going to keep getting PET Scans done every 3 months.  It doesn’t matter that we would certainly get him into treatment the moment one of those scans came up showing cancer.  They’re not happy with that answer.  Is it because they’re not getting their $60,000 a month?  And that’s not counting radiation.

Okay…now let’s talk about the other side to this story.  Another reason for this whole trial is the fact that they’re trying to set an example with us – to not question the doctors or the state, for that matter.  We’re all just basically “foster-parents” to our children.  The state actually owns them and they have a right to decide what’s best for our kids.  We, as parents, do not!  I hope you are all as outraged at this as we are!!!  What happened to our rights??  This is certainly not a free country that we’re all fooled into believing.  Doesn’t the 14th amendment mean anything??

If this makes you furious, please let us know!  Let Governor Snyder know.  Let our Senator and State Reps know.  Let DHS know.   We need to stand up for our rights as parents that we know what’s best for our children and that we should ultimately have the right to decide what’s best.  Not some strangers who don’t know a thing about our children or us for that matter.

As bizarre as this whole situation is, and believe me – you don’t even know half of it, we’re trusting God!  We know this is all happening for a reason.  Not quite sure what it is yet, but God has a plan.  He cares about Jacob.  He loves him more than we do.  God has been taking care of us this whole time since day one back in March.  He keeps on blessing us in so many ways and we are so thankful!  He is truly an awesome God!!!  Please continue to pray for us, for this whole situation.  That the truth would be revealed.  That God’s will would be done!  Also, please continue to pray for Jacob, that he would continue to stay cancer-free and that he would get stronger each and every day.

October 23

When does the State of Michigan have the right to interfere with decisions made by parents concerning the care of their children?  This is the question that will be answered in a jury trial on December 6-7 at the County Court.  Our son, 10-year-old Jacob Stieler has had two clear PET scans in the past 4 months meaning there is no evidence of cancer in Jacob’s body, yet still the Department of Human Services is being pressured by a large children’s hospital in lower Michigan to force him to undergo 6 more months and several weeks of radiation treatments just because this is the “standard of care” protocol, based on studies that have been done on other children, not Jacob.  After going through 2 ½ months of watching Jacob suffer physically and emotionally from his chemo treatments, we were so very grateful to get the results of his PET scan in July which showed no evidence of the cancer which could not be surgically removed in March.  Despite all of our efforts to support his body through treatment, he still lost 14 pounds, and looked like a concentration camp victim after those 2 ½ months.  Now, after receiving some non-traditional therapies to help him regain his lost weight and build up his immune system, Jacob looks like a normal healthy young boy, and is ever so glad to be finished with chemo.  Should Jacob’s cancer return, we, as his parents, will want to be able to choose where to go for treatment, and what kind of treatment we believe will be best for our child.  Except in cases where parents are proven to be unfit, abusive, or neglectful, the State has never been given the right to make these choices, and never should be.  If we do not retain this right as Jacob’s parents, and the ones who have been given the responsibility by God to care for him, what will keep the State from interfering on any number of choices that we parents make concerning the care of our children, medical or otherwise?

According to Jacob’s doctors, 30% of the children who follow their treatment plan are not alive in five years.  Is this because of the damage caused by these very toxic drugs, which can even cause healthy, normal cells to become cancerous?  We have not been given answers to these questions.  There don’t seem to be any answers.  Unbiased studies have not been done.  We hope that in December the jury will remember that it is our right as parents to make any difficult medical decisions for Jacob, this beautiful son that we love far more than the State of Michigan ever could.

Note: the trial was postponed until January

CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Causes Autism

CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Causes Autism

Pin It

Today, the Autism Media Channel released a short video where CDC whistle-blower Dr. William Thompson states, in a phone call to Dr. Brian Hooker, that injecting mercury into pregnant women creates a “clear and present danger” to the unborn child. Thimerosal, a form of mercury used as a preservative in vaccines, was removed from most childhood vaccines a few years ago, but is still in the annual flu shot, which is recommended for pregnant women.

Dr. Thompson, in the video below, insists that this mercury in vaccines causes “tics” in children, and these tics are 4 times more prevalent in kids with autism. “Tics” are defined on the CDC website as: “Tics are sudden twitches, movements, or sounds that people do repeatedly. People who have tics cannot stop their body from doing these things. For example, a person with a motor tic might keep blinking over and over again. Or, a person with a vocal tic might make a grunting sound unwillingly.”

CDC Responds: Admits Omitting Vaccine Data Linking Vaccines to Higher Rates of Autism

While the mainstream media continues to ignore what is becoming the biggest news event of the year, the CDC is scrambling to respond to damaging data that they were forced to release earlier this year clearly showing they had data linking vaccines to autism that they hid from the public. This issue can longer be hidden since one of the top researchers within the CDC, who co-authored several of the studies that supposedly showed no link between vaccines and autism, has decided to become a whistle-blower. He has yet to make an official statement, and it is thought that his attorney is seeking official whistle-blower status before he does so.

The CDC, on the other hand, has responded to Dr. Brian Hooker’s newly published study reanalyzing a 2004 CDC study that excluded data showing a significant increase in autism among African American boys who were vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. They supplied a response to the Next News Network, admitting they excluded certain data, and the reasons for doing so. Next News interviewed Dr. Hooker to discuss the CDC response. Dr. Hooker, through a 10-year legal battle with the CDC and hundreds of Freedom of Information requests, finally received the entire data sets from the CDC after Congressman Bill Posey stepped in to put pressure on them to release it. We also now know that Dr. Hooker was in contact for more than a year with an insider in the CDC who has become a whistle-blower, which undoubtedly applied pressure on the CDC to obey the law and release the data.

In this interview, Dr. Hooker states that the CDC is lying in their response, and the reason they are doing so is to protect the reputation of the MMR vaccine. He also points out that the CDC purchases $4 billion of vaccines from the vaccine industry every year, and are the last ones who should be trusted to do studies on vaccine safety due to their huge conflict of interest.

Preventable medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the US, right after heart disease and cancer, claiming the lives of 210,000 Americans each year. More than two million people are affected by hospital-acquired infections each year, and 75,000-100,000 people die as a result of those infections. The federal government has quietly decided to “solve” the problem of hospital acquired conditions by burying the data.

Note: Health Impact News is not exclusively an outlet for news on the dangers of vaccines. It is one of many topics we cover that the mainstream media typically does not. However, we are in the midst of one of the most significant news events of the century, and as of the time of this writing, the mainstream media has completely ignored it.

That will change.

As we have already reported, a top researcher employed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come forward as a whistle-blower, confessing to his participation in actively covering up data that clearly links vaccines to autism. (See: CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys)

This is not a story the mainstream media (MSM) will be able to ignore for long. However, the MSM is heavily funded by the pharmaceutical industry, and the pharmaceutical industry has their appointed spokespersons on all of the major networks.

The pharmaceutical industry is well-funded. They are perhaps the richest and most powerful group in the world here in the 21st Century. They will fight back and spin this story as best they can – you can be sure of it.

What we will need are more whistle-blowers from the MSM. They will most certainly lose their jobs and careers if they become whistle-blowers, as Sharyl Attkisson, formerly of CBS News, lost her job. Others, like Ben Swann, have left the MSM to start their own independent reporting where they are more free to publish the truth on many issues, including vaccines and autism.

So please excuse us for the moment, if we focus a bit more on the vaccine issue than we normally do. This information is not available in the MSM yet, and that is why we exist: to bring you important topics related to health that the MSM will not cover.

Dr. Hooker is the father of a vaccine-injured child, and is a Ph.D. researcher. He has fought against the CDC for more than 12 years, using the Freedom of Information Act to try and gather as much data as he could from the studies that the CDC has published that claim there is no link between vaccines and autism. He has submitted much of the results of his own internal investigation of the CDC data on vaccines and autism to Congress. Congressman Bill Posey has assisted him in forcing the CDC to comply with many of these requests.

After almost 12 years, his tireless pursuit of finding the truth that the CDC was hiding paid off, as the CDC finally handed over documents so that Dr. Hooker could look at the raw data that the CDC used to claim that there was no link between vaccines and autism. It took some Congressional pressure from Congressman Bill Posey to get this information.

Dr. Hooker is hero, and I believe history will bear that out. He faces a tough road ahead, as he continues to analyze the CDC data that has been covered up and withheld from the public for so long. He needs our prayers and support during this time, as does Dr. Thompson the CDC whistle-blower.

Dr. Hooker has clearly stated what his goal is his pursuit of getting the truth from the CDC: a safer vaccine schedule for children. Tens of thousands of children are damaged or killed by vaccines, as the government vaccine compensation program proves, and yet the CDC continues to promote a one-size-fits all vaccine schedule that sacrifices the lives of so many children.

The CDC Whistleblower who came forward earlier this week to admit that the CDC had covered up evidence that vaccines are linked to Autism has been revealed as Dr. William Thompson. Dr. Thompson was a lead researcher and participant on several studies that were used by the CDC to supposedly prove that vaccines did not cause Autism.
