For several years now Phoenix, Arizona has had the dubious distinction of being the #1 city in the U.S. for taking children away from their parents and placing them into state-funded foster care.
Phoenix judges and CPS workers have consistently taken children out of homes and families and put them into harm’s way at a higher percentage than any other city in the U.S. for the past several years.
Health Impact News started their MedicalKidnap.com website in 2014 due mainly to the sheer volume of parents contacting us from Arizona and complaining about their children being medically kidnapped.
However, based on public statistics  compiled by the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform  (NCCPR), Philadelphia has now overtaken Phoenix as the top city in the U.S. having the highest percentage of the children being removed from homes and put into foster care.
This means that families living in Philadelphia have the highest risk of losing their children to the State and placed into foster care, which we have documented here at Health Impact News as a broken system that trafficks children. See:
NCCPR reports  that Philadelphia has become so bad, that they now take children away from parents at triple the rate of New York City, and quadruple the rate of Chicago.
San Antonio, Texas has the third highest rates of child removals, and Los Angeles had the fourth highest rates.
In terms of sheer numbers of children taken out of homes and put in harms way, however, no city was even close to Los Angeles. In one year Los Angeles took away 9552 children, and Phoenix was a distant second at 5203 children.
NCCPR breaks down their report by factoring in child poverty (for the sake of percentages). Philadelphia is the worst city in the U.S. whether factoring in poverty or not.
Philadelphia: History of NOT Being a City Friendly to Children
Philadelphia has not received good press in recent years when it comes to child safety.
Catholic Church Scandals
Last year (2018) we reported on the pedophilia child sex abuse problem in the Catholic Church, and nationally this story broke in Philadelphia when a grand jury report on sexual abuse in the Catholic Church was released by the Attorney General.
This led to attorney generals in several states opening up investigations into child sex abuse in the Catholic Church. See:
Kids for Cash Scandals
Although originating in a county in Pennsylvania outside of the city of Philadelphia, the infamous “Kids for Cash” scandal that rocked the nation had connections to Philadelphia and cast a long shadow on the corrupt judicial system in Pennsylvania that saw innocent kids sent to privately owned juvenile detention facilities.
The scandal became so notorious, that it was made into a movie . See:
Philadelphia Vaccine Extremist Doctor Wants to Take Away Children from Parents and Jail Journalists who Question Vaccines
Philadelphia is home of one of America’s most radical doctors who wants to forcibly vaccinate all children in America, and put in jail anyone who stands in his way, Dr. Paul Offit, the former Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and current Director of the Vaccine Education Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Dr. Offit has a conflict of interest when discussing vaccines, as he holds a patent and earns royalties from one of the vaccines that is in the CDC vaccine schedule for children.
Dr. Offit wants to remove all exemptions to childhood vaccines, and is in favor of removing children from parents who disagree with him. He also wants to send journalists who disagree with him and question vaccines to go to “journalism jail.” See:
Sadly, while Philadelphia has assumed the #1 position in the country for state-sponsored child kidnappings among large U.S. cities, this is a problem that affects ALL Americans in every city.
This problem will continue to grow worse as long as there are billions of taxpayer dollars to fund the Child Welfare system incentivizing the removal of children from families to feed the foster care and adoption business that employs hundreds of thousands of government workers, whose jobs depend on taking children away from families.
