Father speaks out on losing custody of daughter over medical issues
Our police state is at it again.
Check it out:
New developments tonight in a legal fight over medical care and who is really looking out for a sick 15-year-old girl. Justina Pelletier was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease by doctor at Tufts Medical Center in Boston a few years ago, and has under gone surgeries and treatments for the illnesses ever since.
Then a little more than a year ago, her parents checked her into Boston Children’s Hospital. The doctors there said she did not have a mitochondrial disease. Instead, they said she has a psychological condition, and that Justina’s symptoms were all in her head. That hospital then accused her parents of medical abuse. The state stepped in and a judge awarded custody of Justina to the state. The court then went a step further, ordering her parents not to talk.
But now, they breaking their silence. Lou Pelletier is Justina’s father and he joins me now. Lou, very good to see you.
