Before I begin, I want to remind people that I am not For or Against Medication. I am not For or Against Doctors. I am not For or Against Vaccination. I am for Freedom of Body and Mind. I am against Forced Medication. And I believe that the LOVING (loving is the key) Parents have the RIGHT to decide which medications to put inside their child…period. I believe that when the child is old enough to be aware of themselves that they should be allowed to choose. No I will not give you an age, because all children age and develop differently. Example: We have genius kids that start college at age 9…they should have every right to decide what medicine to put in their body…wouldn't you agree? ( You can watch a short version of this article on YouTube, or continue reading below.)
If Nothing Else PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO:
I have to say, and with a heavy heart…that I believe that not all, but most of the medical establishment has lost its way, and that it’s all about Money.
Who has watched the movie John Q: To summarize a little boy needs a surgery to live. His father does not have the money. He and his church get about two-hundred thousand dollars together (sorry if that amount is wrong, it has been a very long time) and yet he still doesn’t have enough money….I am not going to spoil the movie by telling you the ending…
But my question is: How often does this happen in real life? All the time. Parents tried to get medication for their children, but couldn’t…Situations like this supposedly brought about Health Care Reform, and is why Insurance is mandated for all.
We don’t call doctors who won’t do a surgery, if they don’t get paid: murderers (point in fact, many doctors will wave their fee…and to them…I applaud you). We don’t call insurance companies who won’t pay for “questionable” procedures murders (well some people do)…We call them business men….Worse case they get sued for wrongful death…but never charged with murder. (Another good movie: The Rain Maker)
How many parents have sought out help for their children from the medical industry, and are turned away? (How many children suffer with tooth aches because they are turned away, or their parents can’t afford the treatment?) And for that matter…How many adults, right now, are suffering in pain because they can’t afford the co-pay on their medication….I dare say millions…
This is the nature of the Beast….And I am not blaming the doctors, or the insurance companies, or anyone who really does want to help someone. This isn’t about BLAME…this is about the RIGHT TO DECIDE.
So let us see the flip side: Hematologist-oncologist Farid Fata, MD, in suburban Detroit, Michigan, was arrested August 6 and charged with Medicare fraud in a federal case that stands out from dozens of others recently brought against healthcare providers.
What was his medical fraud? Prosecutors said that the 48-year-old Dr. Fata ordered toxic chemotherapy for patients who did not have cancer or whose cancer was in remission. Doing this "is simply poisoning the patient," prosecutors said in a later court filing.
Is this an isolated event…an outlier? I mean you can’t judge an entire system based off one Doctor. But when you find out that in 2010 94 people were arrested for Medicare and Mediciad Fraud, and 107 arrest in 2012, then you ask: How much Medicare and Medicaid fraud is there? No one knows for sure. BUT: In 2010 the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report claiming to have identified $48 billion in what it termed as “improper payments.” That’s nearly 10 percent of the $500 billion in outlays for that year. However, others, including U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, suggested that there is an estimated $60 to $90 billion in fraud in Medicare and a similar amount for Medicaid. So it has become Big money!
So with these few examples, we can see that when Money is involved, sometimes people’s humanity and compassion, and good intentions can be skewed.
So now let us look at how this is being played out RIGHT NOW, in Detroit Michigan. And I want you to ask yourself: Can we even afford to NOT have Medical Freedom!!!
Detroit Michigan is lacking sustainable employment opportunities. It has a high rate of crime. There are housing issues. Not to mention the Michigan has shut off the water to nearly 15,000 people. (Water isn’t a RIGHT…but Health Care is? Think about this: 3 days without water…you die.) Source: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/07/26/detroit-shuts-off-water-to-residents-but-not-to-businesses-who-owe-millions.html
So what is the City of Detroit Michigan doing with their limited Funds? Are they are going to use the limited money of the tax payers to give people water…NO, NO…They are attempting to prosecute Maryanne Godboldo…YET AGAIN!
Who is this Maryanne Godboldo you may ask? (The link to a time line: http://www.cchrint.org/issues/maryanne-godboldo/) Maryanne Goldboldo withstood a 10-hour standoff with police, an armed assault by a SWAT Team and a TANK…why? Did she rob a bank? Did she kill people? NO…She refused to give her daughter a harmful, potentially lethal, ANTIPSYCHOTIC DRUG…a drug that has been documented by the international drug regulatory agencies as causing: Diabetes, Stroke, and DEATH. Risperdal reactions have included 532 cases if death.
Mind you, this was for a so-called Mental Disorder, and remember: the NEW DSM lists almost EVERYONE as being "mentally unfit" … Even Medical Doctors think the DSM has gone to far.
Now you might know of Risperdal if you have facebook because you will see the big lawsuit ad about boys developing breasts. So you can sue the company, if your boy got breasts…but if you decide to NOT give your child medication…you could go to jail…WHAT?
Does this strike you as odd…Even a little bit?
Seriously, think about it folks. If you said: Don’t give your boy risperdol, he’ll get boobies…parents would be like: Oh my god…I can’t give my son that.
But if you said: Don’t give your girl risperdol, she might die or get diabetes…they would say: Oh my god…that is so rare…what’s wrong with you…don’t you want your child’s behavior to be good?
This is the sad state of affairs.
Here is a link to the Risperdal Package Insert: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2009/020272s056,020588s044,021346s033,021444s03lbl.pdf
And here are some highlights: Warning and Precautions:
Can cause: Cerebrovascular events, Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome, Tardive-dyskinesia, Hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus, Hyperprolactinemia, Orthostatic Hyptension. Leukopenia, Neutropenia. Cognitive and motor impairment, Seizures, Dysphagia, Pripism, Disruption of body temperature and regulation, Antiemetic Effect, Suicide, Disease or conditions that could affect metabolism. Etc…
Luckily, the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights International…is actually looking into this case.
-------FROM CITIZEN'S COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS INTERNATIONAL------
"In response to the state of Michigan's repeated attempts to prosecute mother Maryanne Godboldo for refusing to drug her daughter, CCHR has launched an in-depth investigation into Michigan's mental health policies to get to the bottom of the state's seemingly endless prosecution of Godboldo.
With psychiatric drugs having been at the forefront of this case since the beginning, CCHR, determined to reveal those responsible for the violation of Ariana's rights, has filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the pertinent agencies and psychiatric facilities involved in Ariana's forced incarceration and drugging, including:
• Two of the psychiatrists responsible for administering the powerful antipsychotic drug Risperdal to Ariana.
• The New Oakland Center—the first health care facility to prescribe psychiatric drugs to Ariana.
• The Children's Center—the facility that's responsible for reporting Godboldo to CPS after she exerted her right to carefully wean her daughter off the drug causing severe reactions in her daughter.
• The Hawthorn Center—the facility where Ariana was taken and drugged with two dangerous psychiatric drugs against her mother's wishes and without her medical records.
While a court has ruled three times in favor of Godboldo, the state refuses to accept the verdict. The question is why?
Is the state more interested in protecting the pharmaceutical companies over the well-being of the families of Michigan?
…..And again we ask: Why? Why is this happening? Why do parents lose their children for NOT wanting to medicate them…Why are people forced to buy health Insurance or pay a fine…BUT…water is shut off? What are the priorities of this nation?
So again I will say: Without Medical Freedom…more specifically the RIGHT to say: NO!!! What kind of freedom do you really have? We know that WATER…CLEAN WATER…is the bases of all health….
Now, before I end it, I want you to understand that there is still a flip side to the flip side: Before we get going allow me to paraphrase and quote David Selig, a conservative commentator, when asked if the drug companies should be held more responsible for the deaths of people after taking the drugs:
“You (the person asking why drug companies shouldn’t be held criminally responsible for the deaths of people) are blowing things out of proportion. How are we going to define killing somebody? You have a guy taking a medication, he’s a big fat slob, he goes jogging and has a heart attack. Some shyster links that medication to his death, then they say that they (Pharmaceutical Company) didn’t do adequate testing or research. Then they trot some little fat kid out that’s been stuffing his face with McDonald's and they say McDonald's killed him. Come on, that’s not right.” Then he further says: “Who’s the victim? What about the assumption of risk? Every medication is a tradeoff and you know it!”
I agree: Medication is a TRADEOFF…it is neither good, nor bad…That is exactly why we need the right to say: Yes or NO.
If you would like to read more about Pharmucetical Companies, and the ABSOLUTE need to have medical freedom: Please see my article: http://eliciaclegg.com/3/post/2014/02/crimes-pharmaceutical-companies-are-corrupt-or-greedy.html
Also I will put together a playlist of medication and side-effects…which is an ever growing list.
Closing thought, which I would love feedback on: Are Medical books, text books, journals, government agencies…the Gospel truth of the 21st century. Are the authors looked at as divine? Are they NOT to be questioned, much like the gospel during the Spanish Inquisition? (This is not a religious question…this is a philosophical question) Is saying: I did it because that is what I was taught…the same as saying, I’m just doing my job? …. Remember, scientist became scientist so that they could QUESTION…when you cannot question scientific data…you are no longer a scientist.
That’s all I have…..Let the Trolls come out and crucify my last question.
Thanks for listening: I’ll catch you on the flip side.
