Over 10 ago the country’s attention was focused on Terri Schiavo, a hospitalized woman whose life was ended supposedly for her own good, despite the wishes of her parents. Those kinds of incidents still continue. Just a week or so ago a 69 year-old Boston area woman suffered a similar death.

William Rembis took his baby with him to visit his wife in the hospital. He left the other younger kids in the care of their 14 and 16 year-old siblings. That’s all it took for Child ‘Protective’ Services to swoop down and remove the children. Now CPS is trying to stop the family from homeschooling.
The Child Protective Services (CPS) worker who appeared at the home of Tiffany and Jason Adams in Missouri said she did not want to take their 8 year-old son, Jaxon, but “they’re making me.” Dr. Amber Hoffman had allegedly called CPS right after they asked for a second opinion. The ripple effects are unbelievable. Mrs. Adams has lost her home business and fears she will not be allowed to complete her RN degree, for which she is two credits short. She would still be liable for $45 thousand dollars in student loans.
In a case that is chillingly similar to the Justina Pelletier case, two preteen sisters have been seized from their parents’ custody by CPS and Phoenix Children’s Hospital. In just five months in state custody, the oldest has lost 25 percent of her weight. The sisters are being used without their parents’ consent for genetic research. While their mother fears for her daughters’ very lives, she has been court ordered not to talk and to remove all discussion of the case from social media and the internet.
Lou and Linda Pelletier were hoping today would be the day they would regain custody of their 15 year-old daughter, Justina. Fat chance with a judge like Joseph Johnson on the bench. He ruled that the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families should retain custody of the Connecticut girl. A doctor at Tufts Medical Center was originally treating Justina for mitochondrial disease, but the DCF sided with a seven-month intern at Boston Children’s Hospital who counter-diagnosed her as having mental problems. Meanwhile, Justina has very little strength left. Her parents may only see her under armed guard. Clergy are not allowed in her room.
