Justina Pelletier, 15, admitted to Boston Children’s Hospital nine months ago suffering from flu. She hasn’t returned home since after custody was given to doctors who claim she is suffering from a disease where she ‘imagines physical pain’.
Please check this link out. Unfortunately the larger publications have not picked up this story. Tweet, tumble, blog, facebook, whatever it is, get this story out there. The parents are due in court sometime in December 2013. This is relevant news.
It has been a year since Justina Pelletier has been locked away in a psychiatric ward in the Boston Children’s Hospital. A year! Her health has continually declined, how is this even ethical?
The hospital has a gag order issued so none of the hospital staff can discuss what’s going on. Meaning that we can’t hear the hospital’s side of the story other then, “she has somatoform disorder,”. I’m surprised they haven’t filed a restraining order against them to keep the family away. One hour supervised visits and tapped phone calls. Does this not violate some American law?! Privacy act, cruel and unusual punishment among others.
Wtf are they doing to her?
