Justina Pelletier placed in Mass.

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:John C, 3/26/2014 8:24:34 AM

BOSTON — A judge has placed a Connecticut girl in the permanent custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families in a legal dispute involving different medical diagnoses by two hospitals. Massachusetts Juvenile Court Judge Joseph Johnston in Boston issued the ruling Tuesday in the case of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier of West Hartford, Conn., whose parents sought custody. A Pelletier family friend says they´re devastated by the ruling. The Massachusetts DCF took emergency custody of Justina last year. Tufts Medical Center had treated Justina for mitochondrial disease, a disorder that affects cellular energy production. But Boston Children´s Hospital later

Comments:
Talk about outrages government over-reach and interference!
Girl sent for a second opinion in MA and the doctors disagree on diagnosis and have confined her for over a year away from her parents. Visits are under armed guards.
This incompetently managed MA agency has been given custody. Affirmative action at its finest.

I am quite sensitive and understanding to the parents concerns, but there HAS to be more to the story. HOW could the state do this, if the facts are what are stated? Something isn´t right. This defies common sense, unless there is information we are not privvy to.

Something is terribly wrong at Boston´s Children´s Hospital.
The Doctors at Tufts had first treatment, then Boston decided the treatment was all wrong and CONFISCATED this poor girl. ONE Year and she is fading fast and the parents are helpless to stop Boston´s theft of their own child. The father is ignoring the GAG order in an effort to save his child. The Court, Children´s Services and Boston Children´s Hospital need to be investigated, and the TUFTS Doctors removed from the GAG order. Let´s get the truth.

Don´t have all the details, but BCH may be right. Fifteen year old drama queens have been known to pull the wool over many people´s eyes. It´s not hard to fake chronic fatigue. After a year of laying around, any 15 yr. old wallflower is going to end up all pasty white and sickly looking. Mental illness is the most difficult of all diseases to diagnose.

Jutina was being treated at Tufts for this genetic disorder, which her older sister has also. She became sick with the flu and was taken to boston Children´s ER for help with that. Boston Children´s took over and discounted all treatments from MD at Tufts. Would not let MD from Tufts consult.
MD at Boston´s Children happens to be doing a study on behavioral disorders and has forced Justina into her study with parent´s privileges taken away.
How would you like the State taking away your parental rights to care for your children?

Something about this case smells to high heaven. How can a political entity virtually kidnap a girl under treatment by a physician and take her to a mental facility with no respect to the parents rights???

#3 - check out earlier articles and today´s, as well, about the Justina Pelletier case in U.K. Daily Mail.

Someone said on local radio this a.m. that it seems like something that would happen in the Soviet Union. Sounds like a case of someone in Massachusetts not willing to admit a mistake.

When asked in an interview what keeps him going - the father replied that he heard from dozens of parents, who experienced similar circumstances, to keep up the good fight & bring justification for their children who were taken in custody, medical treatments changed & the ultimate death of those children. Tragically it´s not just children - it happens with the elderly too.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whose stumping for the “hammered” middle class has won fanatical progressive support, clearly has ambitions far beyond Congress’ upper chamber, her demurring about a 2016 presidential bid notwithstanding. She now has a perfect opportunity to boost her profile and expand her own fan base beyond her party’s left wing. All she has to do is get on board the Hillary train. Because odd as it may seem, Hillary Clinton needs Liz Warren. And Liz Warren needs Hillary Clinton. Just days into her unofficial first campaign blitz — thinly disguised as a book tour — Hillary’s ham-handed attempts

Fast-tracked DeLeo gun control bill

House Speaker Robert DeLeo’s new proposal to reduce gun violence has barely emerged with a favorable report from a legislative committee, foreshadowing a potentially turbulent reception in the full House and Senate. (SNIP) The bill (H 4121) has been on the fast track since DeLeo filed it on May 27. The close vote follows a lengthy committee hearing last Tuesday, when supporters said the bill will curb gun violence and opponents countered that the bill unfairly imposes hardships on legal gun owners, while not focusing enough on illegal gun owners. The bill, created with the aid of a task force

Neighbors of a man accused of misleading investigators after the Marathon bombings described a surreal scene this morning at his Quincy apartment — with FBI agents surrounding the building with their guns drawn before hauling off Khairullozhon Matanov in handcuffs. Leslie Aiello, 49, said she was on her couch about 5:30 a.m. when she heard, “We have a warrant out for your arrest,” followed by three loud bangs — what she believes was FBI agents using a battering ram at Matanov’s first-floor apartment where he lived on Common Street for about a year.

The Benghazi investigation could shred the last threads of Secretary of State John Kerry’s credibility. After nonstop major foreign policy blunders with Israeli/Palestinian negotiations, Syria, Ukraine and Iran — just to name a few — his alleged collusion in the withholding of smoking-gun emails tying the White House to the Benghazi ?cover-up could be the final nail in his political coffin. It took a lawsuit by the nonprofit Judicial Watch to extract those key emails showing the White House purposely misled the American people about the terrorist attacks just weeks before the 2012 election.

In a report issued this week, a military panel says the United States is making a big mistake in failing to join with other nations in the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Seas, losing out on opportunities to manage the Arctic and negotiate future disputes. The report, by CNA Corp.´s Military Advisory Board, examines effects of worldwide climate change on national security. It warns that climate-related problems, like droughts and food shortages, are already exacerbating regional and international conflicts. Military Advisory Board members are 16 retired generals and admirals from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and

An Iowa woman jokingly calls it "Satan´s handiwork." A California mom says she´s broken down in tears. A Pennsylvania parent says it "makes my blood boil." What could be so horrible? Grade-school math. As schools around the U.S. implement national Common Core learning standards, parents trying to help their kids with math homework say that adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing has become as complicated as calculus. They´re stumped by unfamiliar terms like "rectangular array" and "area model." They wrestle with division that requires the use of squares, slashes and dots. They rage over impenetrable word problems.

Health Connector costs surpassing $500M

The total cost to implement Obamacare in Massachusetts surpassed a half-billion dollars yesterday, as the Health Connector board agreed to seek an additional $121 million in federal funds to try to rescue the money-hemorrhaging health exchange. “This is now Massachusetts’ Big Dig I.T. project,” said Joshua Archambault, a health care expert at the Pioneer Institute. “The decision was completely irresponsible to taxpayers, with very little uncertainty we’re going to get the end result that we want.” The board approved a two-track plan yesterday — invoking an emergency provision to sidestep state procurement laws — to award a no-bid contract to

GILFORD, N.H. —Some parents in Gilford are voicing concerns about a book with a risque love scene that high school students are reading. School officials said the book "Nineteen Minutes" by New Hampshire author Jodi Picoult has important themes, but some parents disagree. Parent William Baer was handcuffed and escorted out of a meeting held Monday night in which the book was discussed. (Snip) But some parents objected to page 313 in the book, which describes a sexual encounter. "I´ve never read anything like this," Baer said. "It´s like the transcript for a triple-X-rated movie."

House Democrats have overwhelmingly approved a Republican measure to force the Patrick administration to provide a total accounting of all taxpayer money used to salvage the broken Obamacare website and fund temporary health insurance coverage to Bay Staters. “You can’t help but admit it’s a failure,” said House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones Jr. (R-North Reading). “It’s an abject failure that’s going to cost the taxpayers, whether it’s the commonwealth of Massachusetts or money from the feds or rate-payers, tens of millions of dollars that shoudn’t have happened.” A majority of House Democrats adopted Jones’ amendment to its budget late

Sen. Ted Cruz wants Secretary of State John Kerry to resign over his comment that without a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel risks becoming an "apartheid state." The Texas Republican, who´s possibly running for president in 2016, took to the Senate floor Monday to call for Kerry to step down. "Sadly, it is my belief that Secretary Kerry has proven himself unsuitable for the position he holds," Cruz said.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
