My dinner with the
family of Justina Pelletier

Fox News, by Dr. Keith Ablow

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 4/18/2014 11:32:57 AM

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

Comments:
I hope the hospital and the state of Massachusetts get a brutal comeuppance for their kidnapping of Justina.

Isn´t Justina ´female´ enough for Gloria Allred to screech to her defense?

This shrink restores somewhat my opinion of this profession. I still doubt that psychology is a real science or that it does more good than harm. The Pelletier family has suffered a grave injustice and I thank this author for exposing it along with the meaning of somatoform disorder. There are so many of these psychological conditions listed that everyone could be diagnosed with one or more of them and some addictive psychotropic drug prescribed to cure it! Sadly this "cure" is widely used in the military to the point where more servicemen die by suicide than in battle! This is another abuse that should be stopped! If you commit a crime there are legal avenues of appeal but if a shrink puts a label on you then you are locked up with no second opinion, no appeal, no "rights" a gag order on your parents with death as the only way out. At it´s root this double standard comes from the belief that evil does not result from the moral choices of individuals ( crime ) but from blind psychological forces which we have no control over which can be fixed with some chemical in our brain.

The girl is 16 years old. She´s old enough to make her own decisions. It´s not like she is a baby. The people´s republic of Mass is way off on this one. Mass should visit her sisters to get a real feel of the home, they turned out OK.

An armed incursion into this "hospital" is the only course of action left.

The most important governmental entity in the world is the family. The state has declared war on this family, a sovereign entity in its own right.

Go to war for this girl! If this were my child, there would be blood. Mine or theirs.

this girl has been denied visits from her priest, and has not been able to receive the sacraments. A violation of her rights.
More than a year without her parents, except for controlled visits.
Disgraceful.

Why the Pelletier´s??? There is something significant that we are not being told.

Hopefully, one sweet day when the BLM/Pelletier/Obamacare/IRS/Benghazi/illegal immigrant disaster is over, we´ll better understand this madness.

This crime against Justina has a criminal to blame. Judge Joseph F. Johnson, Juvenile Court of Suffolk County, 24 New Chardon Street, Boston, MA 02114 has taken responsibility for this. Let him know what you think. The author of the Constitution of Massachusetts, John Adams, said: Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God´s service when it is violating all his laws.

I had heard #9 that the judge ruled in favour of Justina and her family but was too wimpy to enforce his ruling. This brings up more questions about the DCF ( Department of Children & Familes ) and the hospital. One of these told the family flat out that the judge cannot touch them. If so there is some hidden level of government that trumps the judicial branch of government. I wish this part of the story would come out and get fixed! Nobody should have the final decision on something like this yet remain anonymous!

Does anyone remember the time, maybe 20 years ago, when various child protective entities were charging daycare centers with abuse of children, including sexual and for being witches? All of those cases have been disproved.

Thirty years ago as a research assistant at the University of Texas in Austin I was gathering information on other states´ child protective services, and at the time Florida was considered to have The Best Program! How laughable is that now when one thinks of all the children that have been lost or killed that were in Florida´s CPS system???

The somatoform thing that this hospital in Massachusetts is talking about is even more questionable than the mitochondrial disease the other hospital diagnosed her with. And to hold a child in a prison like environment, saying they were closed on holidays? This is unforgivable. I´m all for a letter writing/emailing campaign.

A third party needs to come in and evaluate both sides, and get this girl out of the hospital. Has anyone gotten an update on her health? They well could be doing her more harm than good. Child Protective Services seem to always do more harm - and miss the really endangered kids, or leave them in a place where they get killed.

President of the Heritage Foundation Jim DeMint stated that the White House is taking a dishonest, indirect approach toward immigration reform. “Greta, I found this statement extraordinarily dishonest,” DeMint said in an interview on Fox News following President Barack Obama’s remarks on immigration in Texas. “So there are so many things I want to respond to, but as we were saying right before he came on, illegal crossings had gone down until 2012. The year before, 6,500 unaccompanied minors had been apprehended. But in 2012, the president did something extraordinary with this DACA executive order, which basically said if you are

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

Ever since President George W. Bush said “Islam is peace” on Sept. 17, 2001, it has been politically shielded from any debate about its effects on its adherents or on the rest of the world. Muslim nations and pressure groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations have used political correctness as a weapon to punish anyone who dared to begin any debate on Islam by calling them “Islamophobes,” an accusation of racism. That era was ended by the lead editorial in the July 5 edition of The Economist, the prominent liberal British news magazine. Titled “The Tragedy of the Arabs,”

In an interview the other day, I was asked what the president might’ve been thinking when he instigated the chaos on our borders with his talk of pen-and-phone amnesty. Half a dozen things went through my mind. Maybe he’s trying some sort of Cloward-Piven maneuver: an attempt to overwhelm our welfare state to the point where we replace it with “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty.” Or maybe he’s just trying to flood the population with Democrat voters. Or maybe he feels America stole its southland from Hispanic people anyway and it’s up to him to

The Democracy Alliance is not a famous organization, but it deserves to be. The Alliance consists of approximately 100 rich liberals who have taken upon themselves the task of coordinating America’s many left-wing organizations to promote a single radical agenda. The Alliance does not publicize the names of its members, but it held a conference for its “partners” and membership prospects in April, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel (naturally) in Chicago. Someone who attended the conference unfortunately (heh) left his or her copy of the documents passed out by the Democracy Alliance behind, and they eventually fell into the wrong

Back in the heyday of the British Empire, a man from one of the colonies addressed a London audience. "Please do not do any more good in my country," he said. "We have suffered too much already from all the good that you have done." That is essentially the message of an outstanding new book by Jason Riley about blacks in America. Its title is "Please Stop Helping Us." Its theme is that many policies designed to help blacks are in fact harmful, sometimes devastatingly so. These counterproductive policies range from minimum wage laws to "affirmative action" quotas. This book untangles the controversies,

That’s why he gets paid $205,400 to teach one class, plus more to run the Poverty Center at the school. Nichol’s noble opposition to income inequality puts him in a class with other great academic class warriors like Elizabeth Warren, who was paid $350,000 by Harvard Law to teach a single course and Clinton’s former Labor Secretary turned inequality campaigner Robert Reich who pulls in $235,791 a year from a public university at UC-Berkeley to teach a course on “Wealth and Poverty” making

“New analyses of the human genome establish that human evolution has been recent, copious and regional,” writes Nicholas Wade in his recently published book A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History. That sounds reasonable, and Wade, a science reporter and editor for many years at Nature and the New York Times, seems an unimpeachable source. But many well-meaning people will regard his words as provocative and even dangerous. For they fatally undermine the idea, widely shared by so-called progressives, that any apparent differences between groups of people are the product of nurture rather than nature, of social conditioning rather than

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic.

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States.

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued

The next time you hear politicians denounce Barack Obama as a lawless, imperial president with a scandal-riddled administration, ask them what they’re going to do about it. Their gnashing of teeth over Obama’s self-granted omnipotence is repetitive. Let’s agree with our ninth president, William Henry Harrison, who said there is nothing more corrupting, nothing more destructive than the exercise of unlimited power. We understand the problem. The only way for politicians to fix it is with a little less talk and a lot more action. The Constitution provides the remedy for a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
