"Doctors go through years of specific training an hands-on internship in order to practice medicine. I doubt medications are prescribed carelessly or
without due diligence."
Until a drug rep brings hundreds of dollars of Olive Garden food into the office and tells them all about their brand new drug! Just because someone
has years of training and a fancy title does not mean that they give a crap about you or your family. Some people become doctors because they truly
care about the health of their fellow man. Some people become doctors because they can make a ton of money. Now, the folks in the latter category are
less likely to invest the time and energy necessary to make the right diagnosis and prescribe the right treatments, because they care more about money
"If Risperdal had a negative effect on this child it is the parents responsibility to communicate this information to their medical professional."
So these altruistic doctors study for years so that they know exactly what they're doing...and then they prescribe the wrong medicine and its up to
the parents to bring it to their attention? So why did they go to all the schooling? Couldn't someone just be in the office making educated guesses?
oh wait, that's what doctors do.
in cases like this, it's always best to err on the side of the parents. I know what's best for my daughter and you do not. Plain and simple. We have
more children in the system than we have truly unstable and dangerous parents. Why is it okay for the state to decided who's better off in which
family and house? What if there are unforeseen factors which make a child's life worse in foster care? You would never know. So why are we so quick to
say "no,no it's okay that that family has been ripped apart; they're a bunch of nut jobs!"
and don't get me started on the whole eugenics argument. Crazy people shouldn't be allowed to reproduce? Is there evidence to suggest that mental
illness is hereditary? for real, I have no idea. Even if that is the case, it's not right to tell people that they are not allowed to have children.
It's the whole reason we're on this planet, it's the best thing that could ever happen to you, and everyone deserves to have a chance to be a parent
if they want.
