From the Editor:
If you live in the United States of America today, and you have children in your home under the age of 18, every day you are in danger of losing your children to the State through medical kidnapping. Something as simple as bringing your child to the local emergency room to care for an injury or sickness puts you at risk for being accused of medically abusing or neglecting your child, and having a doctor direct a social worker to remove the child or children from your custody by force.
Medical kidnapping is defined as the state taking away children from their parents and putting them into state custody and the foster care system, simply because the parents did not agree with a doctor regarding their prescribed medical treatment for the family. In some cases it is as simple as telling a doctor you are going to seek a second opinion on a suggested medical procedure, and then ending up being charged with “medical abuse” and losing your children.
In this book we will introduce you to dozens of families who have had their children medically kidnapped, and we will explain why this is happening to thousands of families all across America today. Every family living in the United States today is in danger, facing medical tyranny and the state-sponsored kidnapping of their children.
What Others are Saying:
Tammi Stefano, Executive Director of National Safe Child and host of the National Safe Child Show:
This book forces the reader to question the safety of children in America. Health Impact News exposes the power Child Protective Services Agencies have to remove children from loving and safe parents. If a child gets sick, if a parent questions the diagnosis of a medical professional, if a parent requests a second opinion, that family runs the risk of losing their child. This is a serious violation of the civil rights and liberties to raise your child, yet it is happening everyday, in every state across America. The mainstream belief that Child Protective Services “CPS” only protects children in abusive situations or homes is clearly false.
The compilation of factual stories in this book clearly exposes the danger families face. The battle parents must endure to save their children will shock you. The family unit, once the foundation of this country, has become endangered. ALL PARENTS SHOULD VIEW THIS BOOK AS A WARNING! Thank you Health Impact News and Medical Kidnap for your passionate work and insightful book!
Ann-Marie Murrell, Co-author What Women Really Want and Editor/Publisher PolitiChicks.com:
Imagine your family doctor telling you your child needs emergency surgery but you say you want a second opinion. Then imagine government workers coming to your home and forcibly taking your child away from you. Sound like an impossibility in America? Think again, because as Medical Kidnapping: A Threat to Every Family In America chronicles, this happens far too often. Thank you Health Impact News for bringing to light an issue that has mostly been in the dark.
Cailin James, Founder of The Humanitarian Alliance:
In this ambitious work, Health Impact News endeavors to expose the threat of medical kidnapping, how this phenomenon is occurring, where, and what can be done to end this tragedy.
Health Impact News bases their investigations and conclusions on detailed examinations of case records and on an in-depth analysis of the system that is creating them. In these accounts, they find evidence of deeply flawed practices that compromise the safety and well being of children and families.
The analysis should be mandated reading for social workers, family court professionals, judges, and GAL’s. Until that time, thank you for shining a bright light on this dark horror for the children of today and the future of American families! The focus on child welfare reform must be preservation of the family and enforcement of constitutional parental rights.
