A teen-age girl who has been held at Boston Children’s Hospital against her will and the will of her parents for 11 months due to a dispute in medical treatment may be transferred back to Connecticut soon.

These are the reports coming out of the most recent court hearing in Boston. The judge presiding over the case has issued a gag order, so it is difficult to get details. Beau Berman is an investigative reporter that has been covering this story from West Hartford Connecticut, which is where the home of the family is located, and updates the story in the following video:

The judge reportedly ruled that the State of Massachusetts will not receive permanent custody of Justina Pelletier, where she has been held in custody in  Boston Children’s Hospital “Bader 5″ psychiatric unit. It appears the judge would like Justina to go back to Connecticut, which is where she was originally being treated until Boston Children’s Hospital intervened and kept her detained in their psych ward because of a disagreement over her diagnosis. The family had brought Justina in to Boston Children’s Hospital to simply receive treatment for the flu. They have not been allowed to bring her home now for 11 months, as they watch her condition deteriorate, only being allowed to visit her once a week.

Ted Glanzer of the West Hartford Patch has also been covering this story, and he reports that Kathleen Higgins, a former Boston Children’s nurse, wrote a Jan. 8 letter to Olga Roche, commissioner of the Department of Children and Families, stating that the hospital’s treatment of Justina in this case was more akin to “torture.” She wrote:

From the perspective of the teen whose life has been derailed, she is the ward of a state devoid of compassion and conscience, prohibited from contact with every facet of her life that holds meaning for her. I am submitting this information, which has been made public, in the form of a complaint against Judge Joseph Johnston, Dr. Colleen Ryan and the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families for the emotional and medical abuse Justina Pelletier has suffered for nearly a year.

Glanzer also reports that attorney Barry Pollack, a former federal prosecutor and the longest-tenured member of the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, called for the closure of the psychiatric unit of Boston Children’s Hospital, which is known as Bader 5.

“Based on [published] reports by several families, there has been a pattern of abuse of children by one or more healthcare providers at the Bader 5 inpatient unit of Children’s Hospital,” Pollack wrote.  “My clients’ case involved the failure of Bader 5 providers to protect a 14-year-old girl, as set forth in the accompanying Complaint. I understand that other cases in which children have been confined in Bader 5 involve(d) controversial diagnoses concerning mitochondrial disorder (such as in the high profile Pelletier case and a less publicized Hilliard case), PANDAS (such as in the Wray case), and Lyme disease.”

Pollack went on to call Bader 5’s approach as “anti-parent” that “fails to respect the time-honored importance of the parental relationship, at the expense of children and families.”

“Children in Bader 5 can be blocked from the outside world and even at times daylight,” Pollack wrote. “For those children, like all victimized children, an important step in recovery can be an acknowledgement of wrongdoing by an institution that has failed them. Bader 5 has clearly failed and hurt many of its patients and their families.” (Source.)

Unfortunately, Justina’s story is not all that unusual. There are many cases very similar to this one, where Child Protection Services or a similar agency, is used by a doctor or hospital to seize children away from their parents when they did not comply to their recommended medical treatments. We have reported on many of these here at Health Impact News (see links below). In one case we reported on last year, an Amish family fled the U.S. to avoid forced chemotherapy on their 10 year old daughter. The girl had been awarded custody to the hospital, because doctors claimed she only had months to live, but the family took the girl outside the U.S. for alternative cancer therapy, and is today reportedly cancer free. The father of the girl reported that his daughter was part of an experimental cancer drug trial at the hospital that they did not approve of. Read more of her story.

The only reason we can bring you this story about Justina Pelletier at Boston Children’s Hospital, is because local investigative reporters picked up the story and published it. In almost all of these cases the action of removing children from parents are carried out in secrecy with gag orders in place, and are therefore mostly unknown to the public. I am following several similar stories right now based on Facebook postings, but unless a local reporter picks up the story and covers it in the local media, it is very difficult to know enough details to publish a story.

Beau Berman, the local reporter covering the Justina Pelletier story, met a man attending the Justina Pelletier rallies outside the courthouse in Boston who claims the same thing happened to his child, and the hospital ended up killing his 2 year old son who had previously been healthy, and fed only organic food. Here is the video:

From YouTube description: Testimony of David Silver on how his healthy 2 y.o. son was removed by the MA Dept. of Children & Families with fraudulent mental illness diagnoses on the parents, and 
how his son was eventually killed in October 2013 after harmful forced-medical treatment and psychiatric drugs at three Harvard hospitals: Boston Childrens, Brigham & Women’s and Massachusetts General Hospital.

One thing that is crystal clear: children are constantly being seized from their parents due to disagreements over medical treatments all across America.

Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health

Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health

Pin It

Your environment and lifestyle, particularly your diet, has a direct influence on your genetic expression. For example, research using identical twins have shown that diet trumps genes in terms of the level of health you achieve.

The science of epigenetics also challenges the conventional view of genetics, proving that the environment determines which traits a gene will express, and that your fate is in no way written in stone even if you have genetic predispositions.

It has become increasingly clear that there’s collusion going on between our government, industry, and scientists, to hide the fact that everything from human health and intellectual capacity to various addictions are indeed caused by the environment in which we find ourselves, NOT genetics and the failed science supporting it with billions of research dollars.

Knowing we are not salves to our genetic heritage offer tremendous amounts of hope for every single one of us, as it removes us from the position of victims of our heredity, and makes us masters of our own health and well-being.

Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014

Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014

Pin It

Criminal activities of pharmaceutical companies are frequently reported on in the mainstream media. The largest criminal settlements in U.S. history are cases against pharmaceutical companies, such as Johnson & Johnson’s $2.2 billion criminal settlement late last year for illegally marketing drugs to the elderly, children and the mentally disabled.

When it comes to criminal activities involved with marketing vaccines, however, there is a near total blackout in the mainstream media. So here at Health Impact News we will highlight a sampling of some of the biggest stories of fraud and criminal activities involved with marketing vaccines so far here in 2014.

Very few of these stories have been mentioned in the mainstream media, because the vaccine market is a multi-billion dollar market, and the vaccine industry does not like losing any market share. They are using their incestuous relationship to the U.S. government to take away personal rights and liberties in medical choices. They would like mandatory vaccine policies in place at the local, state, and national levels, because their products cannot survive in a free market. They need government collusion and coercion for this market to survive. And so far, with the help of the mainstream media generally not reporting on the corruption and criminal activity, they have a willing and compliant public.

The Flu Vaccine War: Healthcare Workers Fight Back

The Flu Vaccine War: Healthcare Workers Fight Back

Pin It

We have already established in previous articles that the flu vaccine is by far the most dangerous vaccine in the United States, injuring and killing many people every year based on settled court cases by the Department of Justice in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

And yet, hospitals across the country are mandating that healthcare workers receive the flu vaccine as a requirement to keep their employment. The main reason for this policy of forcing employees to receive the flu vaccine is not based on solid science that it protects patients (the science actually points towards no patient benefits), but based on funding requirements for medical reimbursements through Medicare and Medicaid, and through the Affordable Health Care Act, that require healthcare facilities to have a high compliance rate of employees receiving the flu vaccine.

Nurses, doctors, and other healthcare workers across the country are fighting back, however.

This week, he Massachusetts Nurses Association sued Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to block a policy to require nurses to get flu shots as a condition of employment.

And this is not the first lawsuit in the country. Others have also taken action to protect their right to refuse medical treatments that are mandated as a condition to retain employment.

Why would State Farm make such a controversial decision to pull one of their ads featuring someone who helped families with vaccine-injured children in private, knowing that they would lose customers over it? Could it be they were pressured to do so because they just jumped into the lucrative health insurance exchange business?

Learning When to Refuse Medical Treatment

Doctors today are over-prescribing diagnostic tests and drugs, and patients need to learn how to say “no” to their doctors. This message, surprisingly, is coming from the mainstream media. While this has been a clear message for many years now in the alternative media, that message is now going “mainstream.”
