A Detroit Michigan, home schooling mom was forced at gunpoint to release her daughter to authorities because she refused to administer medication to the child whose behavior worsened after receiving it.
The following video shows the mother being released from jail after she was accused of shooting at the Special Response Team (much like a SWAT team) in Detroit during a standoff, when they surrounded her home, in an attempt to force her to release her child into their custody because she was not giving the drug to her child. Do these circumstances require armed men with tanks in the street in front of her house? You be the judge.
There are extenuating circumstances to this situation, but the bottom line is that the woman’s right to be a parent and make a decision based on her own assessment of the child’s well-being was being superceded by outside authorities.
From the Detroit News:
“We believe she had an adverse reaction to her immunizations,” Penny Godboldo said.
“She began acting out of character, being irritated, having facial grimaces that have been associated with immunizations.”
Evans said Maryanne Godboldo sought help for her daughter from The Children’s Center, an organization that helps families with at-risk children, where a medical and mental health treatment plan was developed. Godboldo told relatives the medications ordered by the doctor worsened symptoms, including behavioral problems.
“It is an undiagnosed condition, but the doctor had given her psychotropic drugs that caused a bad reaction, made things worse,” said the girl’s father, Mubuarak Hakim. “Maryanne’s decision to wean her from that was making a difference, making her better, helping her to be a happy kid again.”
Your adolescent child (seventh through twelfth grade) will now be required a whooping cough immunization before entering school in September. This is the new California law. Will this make it mandatory for teachers to also recieve a dose of the medication? I remember recent commercials scaring young mothers to get the vaccinations to avoid giving it to their babies.
More vaccines, more immunizations… read the flu shot entry on this blog and do your own investigation. I wonder if the teachers union will comply or reject any immunizations on their part. What is to stop the authorities from making parental immunizations mandatory? If the advertised recommendation would be to mothers of babies who do not have the cough… and they are requiring it of adolescents, maybe tomorrow they will require it of you.
