Health Impact News

We recently published the story of a Tennessee couple who was traveling through Connecticut on their way to a vacation destination in Maine, when the wife, who was pregnant, starting experiencing back pains and decided to check into a hospital in Connecticut for a check up.

Her Egyptian Christian husband was allegedly accused of being a Muslim terrorist, and before they knew it, she was being drugged against her will and forced to have cesarean surgery to remove her daughter from her womb, when she had been planning on having a natural birth.

Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) then proceeded to take custody of the baby, with no formal charges ever filed against the parents. The parents eventually had to return to their home in Tennessee with their other two children, making the 20-hour one-way trip back to Connecticut each week to have a supervised 2-hour visit with their daughter as they tried to comply with DCF to get their daughter back.

After six months, the parents decided to take their story public.

See the original story:

Pregnant Mom Traveling Through Connecticut with Husband Stops at Hospital Where They Forcibly Drug her and Perform Cesarean Surgery to Kidnap Baby

Suzy, the mother, has now reported that Connecticut DCF is refusing to allow them to see their baby since they went public with their story.

We have just driven all day yesterday and all night for the past nearly 20 hours straight to get to Connecticut to see our baby and now our case worker David Friend is telling us that he cannot accommodate our visit and we cannot see our child!

He has kept us from seeing her for over a month now by doing this very same crap to us and then told the judge it was OUR FAULT! I am starting to think they do not EVER intend to let us see her again!!! These people are such bullies and no one will make them treat us fairly! What are we supposed to do?!?!? We have the right to see our baby!!!! (Source.)

Using “Mental Diagnosis” to Terminate Parental Rights?

Suzy wrote that as a retaliation for going public with their story, that Connecticut DCF is apparently going to try and use a psychological analysis to justify terminating the parental rights.

Our no-count attorney told us that the corrupt Connecticut courts told him that because we have gone public with our story, the DCF got the judge to “order” us to submit ourselves to a 6-hour “mental health” interrogation EACH where they are going to try to say that one or both of us is somehow mentally insane and (I am guessing) use this as the basis to terminate our rights to our baby at the November court date.

Others Come Forward with Similar Stories in Connecticut – Are “Predictive Analytics” Being Used in CT to Kidnap Children?

Since going public with their story recently, others have apparently come forward to share similar stories based out of Connecticut.

WOW! I am hearing some extremely disturbing things about Middlesex hospital in Middletown, CT where our daughter was stolen from us!

They are stealing peoples children like crazy claiming “predictive neglect” about perfectly normal parents (we are not even sure what we are on trial for because no one will tell us!) and then later using corrupt whitecoats to claim they are medically insane and therefore cannot have their children back.

I want to thank everyone so much for all of your stories(even though some of them have been extremely horrifying, it really helps us to know what we are in for since we have never dealt with this kind of thing before), your messages of support and prayers, kind words and advice!

Words can not convey how much my husband and I appreciate each and every one of you. Before we came out in the public, we felt so completely and utterly alone during these horrific times!

We owe you all so much for your support and for believing in us! Having to live without our Sofia has been so devastatingly painful. Some days it takes everything in me to not just sit around the house crying all day! (Source.)

We have reported on the practice of “predictive analytics” previously here at Health Impact News, and how these analytics are being used to justify taking children away from parents before the parents have even done anything to warrant a removal. See:

CPS Using “Predictive Analytics” Software to Label Parents as Unfit, Even Before Baby is Born

Richard Wexler, from the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform, has exposed how “Predictive Analysis” is nothing more than racial profiling.

It is the latest fad in child welfare: Use a computer algorithm that supposedly can predict who will abuse a child. The term commonly used in the field is “predictive analytics.” A more accurate term would be “computerized racial profiling.”

The dangers of computerized racial profiling

  • ProPublica reports that predictive analytics already has gone terribly wrong in criminal justice, falsely flagging Black defendants as future criminals and underestimating risk if the defendant is white.  A new analysis of ProPublica’s data confirmed their findings.
  • In child welfare, a New Zealand experiment in predictive analytics touted as a great success wrongly predicted child abuse more than half the time.
  • In Los Angeles County, another experiment was hailed as a huge success in spite of a “false positive” rate of more than 95 percent.  And that experiment was conducted by the private, for-profit software company that wanted to sell its wares to the county.
  • The same company is developing a new approach in Florida. This one targets poor people. It compares birth records to three other databases: child welfare system involvement, public assistance and “mothers who had been involved in the state’s home visiting program.”

So listen-up “at-risk” new mothers: In the world of predictive analytics, the fact that you reached out for help when you needed it and accepted assistance on how to be better parents isn’t a sign of strength – it’s a reason to consider you suspect, and make it more likely that your children will be taken away.

The Broken Heart of a Mother: Suzy Articulates What it Feels Like to Have the State Kidnap Your Child

Peter and Suzy’s experience with Medical Kidnapping might be your first exposure to this practice in the United States. Others have maybe followed us since we started in 2014.

But probably no one understands the pain suffered from such loss unless they have lived through it. Suzy has been very articulate since going public a couple of weeks ago, and she uses two analogies that perhaps illustrate this pain and suffering parents go through better than anyone else ever has.

Analogy 1:

Years ago, as I was scrolling down Facebook, I came across this video that someone had posted to raise awareness for animal cruelty. (I didn’t know exactly what it was before I clicked on it!)

It showed a little black kitten in a bucket and then someone started dousing it with a clear fluid, lit a match and tossed it in the bucket. (It was supposedly filmed in another country and the people were speaking another language.)

It was the most brutal, horrible, gruesome thing I have ever seen. The poor little thing jumped and screamed and cried, but no one came to his rescue.

Finally he just laid down and died.

After I watched it, I wished I could un-see it but it was too late.

It has haunted me all these years until this day.

Now I feel like we are going through the very same thing. IN THIS MOMENT, I KNOW EXACTLY HOW THAT POOR LITTLE KITTEN FELT!

They tortured us and took our newborn child from us 3 days after her birth for absolutely no reason but rather just because they could. They couldn’t care less about the detrimental psychological consequences it would have on us or our family. We have been screaming and crying out to the world, but no one seems to care.

Analogy 2:

I was once in a jet skiing accident with a good friend in college and nearly drowned. He was driving and doing all these 360’s and the life jacket I was wearing was too large.

When we got thrown over, the shoulder of my life jacket got caught in the handle bar of the jet ski which was now upside down under the water. I could have easily unbuckled the locks and set myself free but I panicked and because I was already sinking down into the jacket, I tried to just slip out from the bottom.

It didn’t work and I got caught. When I could no longer hold my breath, I remember trying not to but just by reflex, trying to take a gasp of air and inhaling all this water.

It didn’t hurt like I expected it to like when you get water up you nose, but the mental anguish that I had to go through for how ever many minutes it was going on, was unbearable.

The mental agony of believing you are about to drown and never see your loved ones again is such torture in and of itself.

That feeling I felt that day, it is the same feeling I have felt ever since they took our sweet little Sofie from us. I can only equate waiting for this trial as similar to waiting for your “turn” on death row.

It is causing you such horrific stress that you are living in this “limbo” so to speak, that you just wish it could be over with already so you can get on with your life…until you realize that when it is over, so is your life!

All you can do is start thanking God for every moment of ever second you have with the ones you love and hold them so tight, praying that you will have the strength to never let go.

Public Outcry Needed

If this story upsets you, please let Governor Ned Lamont of Connecticut know. He is in the best position to put pressure on the right people to let Baby Sofia return to Tennessee where her parents live.
