My mom was telling me that you guys have a court case involving a braindead child being kept alive by machines.
The parents want him moved to the state to try out an untested drug that may or may not give him some function in his lungs but the courts are refusing to allow it. That's when i learned that un like here in the states you guys let the courts have the last word in cases like this. Here in the states the parents get the last word in regards to their children.
The Medical Kidnapping of Cassandra C: Exclusive TTAC Interview (video)
Imagine your 17-year-old daughter gets the diagnosis of cancer. You both do research on treatment options and see that chemotherapy is toxic with potentially long standing, irreversible consequences: damage to the reproductive organs, bladder, heart, lungs, nervous system, kidneys, and more. You and your daughter decide not to do it and choose to take a different route; one that is safer and is non-toxic.
Much to your shock, while you are out shopping, your daughter is home and the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) shows up at your door (with 12 police cars no less, to kidnap your daughter and force her to do chemotherapy against her will and your wishes).
Cassandra was back in the hospital and scheduled to begin forced chemotherapy. But even then she wasn’t ready to submit to this gunpoint medicine. It took no less than 12 workers to strap her wrists and ankles to the bed and control her while the nurse stuck a needle in her neck to sedate her. She woke up in the recovery room with a port in her chest. Had this horrific abuse taken place on the streets of Hartford, the assailants would have been guilty of assault and battery. However, since these human rights violations occurred in the hospital, the assailants will never be charged with the crimes that they committed against Cassandra. In her own words, “At that point, I didn’t feel like a human anymore… I feel like I’ve been violated… My ankles and wrists were bruised when I woke up.”
Over the course of the next 5 months, Cassandra received round after round of toxic chemotherapy; always letting the violators know that “I don’t consent to this treatment” before they forced deadly poison into her body. She was told that if she fought them, that they would starve her. Eventually she quit fighting. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that she couldn’t leave her room (there was an armed guard at the door), she couldn’t make phone calls, and she couldn’t have guests in her room unless they were “approved.“ Cassandra wasn’t even allowed to go outside! In her own words, “even prisoners are allowed to go outside for an hour a day. I didn’t even get that.”
