POLICE STATE: Hospital Kidnaps Teen from parents & forces her to be hospitalized for 10 months

A 15-year-old girl, Justina Pelletier, has been imprisoned inside a Boston Hospital for over 9 months, after the hospital and the Department of Children Family Services decided the parents were becoming too active in their daughters treatment.

The girl’s father told reporters, “It is kidnapping” … “It’s beyond any wildest nightmare that you could think of.”

After a long history of medical problems, Justina was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease. The disease is a genetic disorder that can cause a loss of muscle coordination and weakness.

Despite the diagnosis she lived a relatively normal life, and prior to being admitted to the Hospital for the Flu, the girl was an active teen that would go ice skating and spend time with her family.

That all changed last February, when the Justina got the Flu and had to be admitted to Boston Children’s Hospital to see her specialist.

Dean Hokanson, the clinical psychologist who has worked with Justina the past five years, said, “It’s the most bizarre situation … I’ve ever been involved with.” Upon entering the hospital, a team of doctors who had never worked with the girl gave a completely different diagnosis, and then accused the family of being too active in their child’s care.

Hokanson, who’s puzzled by the hospitals behavior said, “They were actually being accused of being too active in pursuing health care matters for their child.”

Boston Children’s Hospital accused the parents of over treating Justina, claiming she was suffering from Somafotorm disorder – a psychological condition that manifests itself in physical symptoms. Within days of being admitted, Boston Children’s hospital had the Department of Children and Families give them custody of the girl.

Apparently they didn’t agree with the her original diagnosis and treatment plan, in spite of the fact that her treatment had been approved by multiple doctors who had been treating her for over five years.

In an email sent by the child’s original doctor,  Tufts Medical Center specialist Dr. Mark Korson, he writes, “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.”

Nine months after being admitted, the family continues to fight to regain custody of their daughter who is still imprisoned in the hospital.

We Know Best…. And you Better not Question our Authority

Sadly these types of cases seem to be becoming more frequent; in fact, earlier this year we reported on the story of a couple who had their five-month-old son kidnapped by CPS officials for wanting to obtain a second opinion on their son’s health condition.

After taking their son to the hospital to be looked at for flu-like symptoms, the couple was shocked when doctors told them their son needed heart surgery. After a slew of medical mistakes, including being given unneeded medications, the couple told the hospital that they were going to seek a second opinion and immediately left without signing the hospitals discharge papers.

Despite immediately admitting their son into another hospital across town, where the baby was declared clinically safe to take home, the first hospital had CPS officials remove the baby from the parents’ home.

What’s really insane about these cases, is the fact that these children were taken away from their parents even though multiple doctors could not agree on a diagnosis.

The medical community has become far to powerful, and its a scary time when they have more say in the treatment of a child than the parent.

    That is the reason doctors get away with murder and homicide. They just say opps we made a mistake and everything is ok. Well if i hit someone with my car i should be able to say opps my mistake and go home or anyone else for that matter. Everyone else has authority to raise children but the children’s own parents. Parents grab a club, or whatever, and scream out together. If everyone does not stand together against the government then we will all die alone.

        Whoa. Hold on for a sec. You just extrapolated this story into the idea that professional healers are murderers? Have you ever been inside a human body? It’s not like being inside a car ok kido. It ain’t like turning on the defrosters. It doesn’t get any more complicated then the inner workings of the human system. It takes a special type of person to take on such a colossal amount of risk. You want to look for a sky is falling threat, look at the decline of doctors in this country thanks to continuing gov, insurance, and tort intervention in patient care!

          First off kiddo is not me. Second i meant murder in the text that they can do whatever they want. I have studies to be a doctor and a mechanic and i really don’t know which one is really harder except if a mechanic makes a mistake and kills his/her patient, they can try again on the same patient. I have also been screwed up and over by a doctor and don’t care to trust them anymore than i trust ovomit and his ovomitcare.

    And with Obamacare kicking in 6 weeks from now, this can only get worse. It already includes ‘home cops’ who will be coming to your home on various ‘health’ pretenses, and doing things exactly like this case – except that they will be coming to your home to do it. Probably accompanied by armed enforcement too, just like zoning inspectors these days who come out with guns to tell you to dig out your garden and plant grass.

    Parents are being mislead by a multi billion-dollar a year child drugging industry that a diagnoses of “mental disorder” (ADHD, Bi-Polar, Social Anxiety Disorder) are medical diseases or illnesses. This is a fraud. No child has a brain scan, blood test, X-Ray or any evidence of physical abnormality to verify they are “ill” or “diseased.”

    Yet psychiatrists continue to pound the public with misleading and fraudulent statements that these so called mental disorders are biochemical or neurological conditions. That is false. They are simply a list of behaviors that psychiatrists vote into existence and insert into their billing bible, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

    This has led to over 8 million children in the U.S. taking mind-altering psychiatric drugs.

    The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV), published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), is psychiatry’s billing bible of “disorders” from which psychiatric screening, diagnoses and their treatment are derived. The current edition lists 374 psychiatric conditions that have been identified as mental disorders.

    Yet, the disorders contained in the DSM-IV are arrived at by consensus, not by scientific criteria. There are no blood tests, brain scans, X-Rays, MRIs or “chemical imbalance” tests that can scientifically validate any mental “disorder” as a disease or illness. Canadian psychologist Tana Dineen reports, “Unlike medical diagnoses that convey a probable cause, appropriate treatment and likely prognosis, the disorders listed in DSM-IV are terms arrived at through peer consensus”- literally, a vote by APA committee members.

    It is horror for the parents when this happens.
    I am a mother with an adult son and they did this.
    When putting up resistance they created false sexual allegations to keep me away, even thought both my son and I say if is maliciously false. Of course the sexual abuse allegations were created by hospital staff and turned into protective services.
    They still have my son locked up and drugged.
    He is now a completely different personality.
    Brainwashed! They are now trying to move him 5 hours from hi home, and family. It is complete horror when the government kidnaps your child in the name of medical experiments.
    Our government is corrupt.
