” After a long history of medical problems, a West Hartford teenager is now “trapped” inside a hospital with seemingly no way out.
In December 2012, Justina Pelletier was an active 15-year-old girl who would go ice skating, laughed and spent time with her family.
But just two months later, her family says their nightmare began.
“[Exhales] It’s beyond any wildest nightmare that you could think of,” says Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier.
“It’s the most bizarre situation … I’ve ever been involved with,” says Dean Hokanson, the clinical psychologist who has worked with Justina the past five years.
Justina was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease a few years ago. It’s a genetic disorder that can cause loss of muscle coordination and weakness.
The corrupting influence of the State is even turning the medical establishment against the citizens . A young girl is forcibly taken from her parents because the parents desired a second opinion . Where are parent’s rights ? Since when does the State authorize the medical profession to kidnap and hold children against their will ?
This is an outrage , yet an inevitable result of the growth of the Leviathan State . Maybe Obamacare is a good thing after all and will drive us away from the medical state and foster the creation of an underground healthcare system that adheres to first principles , individual freedoms and accepts cash payments for reasonably priced treatments without threat of dealing with medical staff that in reality are government stool pigeons .
This is another fine example of Hillary Clinton’s “it takes a village” idea and we should expect more of this sort of thing as the State grows ever more powerful . Imagine where we will be if the State becomes the sole provider of our healthcare .
Glenn Beck has picked up the story :
“We are talking about the story that is up on The Blaze, ‘It’s kidnapping: Hospital takes custody of a girl.’ Imagine your 15-year-old daughter, you take her in because she has a flu, and you are told you have to get out. And you are escorted out by police, and you no longer have custody of your child because you disagree with the diagnosis,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “And so the parents now, for nine months, have been fighting this. The judge put a gag order, so nothing can get out, which is another thing that is absolutely wrong. That is absolutely wrong. “
