13 months of pain and suffering, 13 months of involuntary medical research conducted, and 13 months of malpractice. Let the lawsuit begin!!!!!. If I was the family, I would sue Harvard, Boston Children’s Hospital, and the state of Massachusetts. But first I would get the girl checked by a specialist with no conflict of interest; to find out what the physical, and emotional damage was, and how long it will take to repair the damage, if it can be repaired.
If any drugs were used that are experimental, or a study medication, the drug companies should be sued also, for ethical failures in research. Children who are wards of the state should be granted the default position of No! when it comes to medical research.

here is a link that might interest some. It proves that Boston Children’s diagnosis 50% of children somatoform. It’s on my Facebook because of the limit on comments.
Basically they are going to flip a coin to see if your child is lucky enough to receive treatment.

and family risk factors, and new trends in the evaluation and management of pediatric patients with psychosomatic illness.
Up to 50% of patients in pediatric care will complain of medically unexplained symptoms with significant functional and emotional impairment. Such patients place heavy burdens on the healthcare system (frequent utilization of health resources and hospitalizations, specialist consultations, unnecessary investigations, and treatments). Somatoform disorders in pediatric care are associated with risks for psychiatric co-morbidity (anxiety and depressive disorders), family conflict, parent-perceived ill health, and school problems/absenteeism.
Gaining expertise in addressing pediatric psychosomatic illness can make a great difference in patients’ life and in physicians’ professional satisfaction. Effective treatment approaches involve a multidisciplinary approach to consolidate care and facilitate communication, target the patient/family’s understanding of the mind-body relationship and their acceptance of the bio-psycho-social formulation and treatment, and utilize functional rehabilitation and cognitive behavioral therapy for the individual and family and management guidance for schools.

This will make blood shoot out of your eyes.
Dr. Simona Bujoreanu The psychologist who Vacated the diagnosis of Justina Pelletier, and then rediagnosed her with somatoform disorder within hours; was predisposed to do so.
Ok everyone I need to ask a favor. This is very important, and needs to be spread far and wide. This little girl is the first casualty of the Obama Care death panels. Basically she was to expensive, and her treatment needed to be stopped. Problem is Hospitals are going to be the ones who decides who receives treatment. Here is an abstract co authored by the doctor who vacated a previous diagnosed condition, and claimed that this little girls sickness is all in her head. The doctor then diagnosed her with a somatoform disorder, after just a couple of hours. Somatoform disorders take months, if not years to diagnose. and is now denying her treatment to save the healthcare industry money. Here is the abstract.

since the doctor in question has a history of doing the same thing to other families. I am wondering if the doctor thinks herself the catcher in the rye. if so she probably sees abuse everywhere.

They are researching the progression of the disease. They deny treatment, and keep notes of the decline in her health. This is an old very illegal form of research on any normal person. It is the equivalent of torture; to further scientific study, of a rather unknown condition. The only reason they can do this study without the informed consent, is because she is a ward of the state, and considered property.
I have a good question. What happens when a psychiatrist has Munchausen? Wouldn’t his patients become his proxies. He would probably project his condition on his patients, in the belief that he is saving them.

The hospital in question is an academic hospital, therefore they conduct research. They have found a patient suffering from a disease or condition they don’t fully understand. Now they have taken custody of such patient. Through a medical proxy they can conduct research uninhibited by informed consent. Academic hospitals in America have a history of this exact thing. The girl in question has a diagnosed condition. Boston Children’s Hospital does not have experience in that condition. So the hospital gets custody of the patient, and changes the diagnosis. This way the hospital can deny treatment, and follow the progression of the disease. If the patient is fifteen years old, that gives the hospital three years to torture the child, by denying treatment. If this sounds far fetched, do a search of the Tuskegee experiments. Those experiments ran from the 1930′s until 1971. The doctors knowing that there was a treatment for syphilis; denied such treatment to their patients, so they could follow the progression of the disease. Right now the little girl in question here, is at the mercy of doctors with an ulterior motive. If the doctors are wrong about the somatoform disorder, then they are torturing this girl by denying her treatment. And copies of all of her medical treatment should be forwarded to the world court for crimes against humanity, for Boston Children’s Hospital conducting medical research against a persons will.

Originally The girl in question was a resident, and ward of the state of Connecticut. therefore she should have been returned to the state of residency, and their department of children and families.

Can’t people see it’s only racism if your white. The witness on the stand claimed calling white people Cracker, is just how they talk, it’s not racist. And right now they are crucifying Paula Dean for something she did 30 years ago… It looks to me that the greatest threat to America right now; is anyone that claims there going to start killing people, if George Zimmerman is found not guilty. After todays testimony; if he is found guilty, there is some serious activism going on, because today was proof he was defending himself. I’m about sick of everyone calling Trayvon a kid. I went to Marine Corps boot camp with three seventeen year old men, who were just as able to take a mans life as my eighteen year old self. Well if it’s going to happen; come and get ya some, because I am one highly skilled creepy ass cracker.

How did this guy get a VA disability rating without a DD-214? You have to have a DD-214, and at least one year active duty before you can actually register for VA benefits, or disability. He obviously got these requirements waived by someone in upper management. They don’t even grant disability benefits to National Guard, or reserves unless they have a service connected disability, and or at least one year active duty. I actually think the amount of time active duty has been increased to 18 months.

I would just like the family to know that the one who survived will be well taken care of. When he gets out of the hospital he is going to an American prison; so there are no worries of him dying a virgin. He is a pretty boy. They will pass him around like a party favor. Maybe they will be nice enough to let him face Mecca, when he is on his knees blowing them.
THISHASBEENANEXAMPLEOF is an example of...
unable to say " boo" to a goose.
Random logical fallacy titles used in the wrong way.
The tu quoque fallacy is committed when it is assumed that because someone else has done a thing there is nothing wrong with doing it. In the top comment, it is essentially argued that because our prisons have a reputation for rape, such is a fitting punishment. While such an opinion is entirely permissible and perhaps even understandable, it is not a logical argument. I'm happy to help you understand any fallacy that confuses you.
How about addressing the "fallacy" of making terse posts with zero intentions of social/ philosophical dialogue, THISHASBEENANEXAMPLEOF ?
Seems disingenuous. at the very least.
You're a graffiti artist. No more than that.
Is THAT ok to you because you perceive Blazers to be such?
Are you justifying your immaturity by pointing to them, and saying "they did it 1st"?
Major League, this is one of the best comments I've read. I laughed out loud.
He won't make it long in prison. Even people in prison don't like bombers who blow up 8 year old boys. They don't tend to fare well in prison. This boy won't make it. He knows that. He won't survive the trip out of local jail. Expect him to probably hang himself with bed sheet or belt or something else. The people of this 'faith' are expected to die martyrs and he will fulfill his duty as such.

The Saudi national Was supposedly killed in Saudi Arabia in 2008, Why is he here, and why is he breathing. The Al Harabi family is very powerful in Saudi Arabia. I think they faked his death, and put him in hiding. He was born 1988, and was supposedly killed in 2008. So why did this Saudi national get captured at an attack, and use a false name. Then when the FBI figures out who he really is the Saudi’s come running to his rescue. The terrorists are already in the US on student visas, and they are almost ready to attack. The big named Saudi’s don’t start showing up until the attack is imminent, then they get rushed back to Saudi Arabia quietly after the show. The government knows this because this is what happened before 9/11. After the 9/11 attack the Bin Ladin family was in Washington DC. After the attacks they were quietly flown back home to Saudi Arabia, even though all airlines were grounded. Something bad is coming and were not being told because it is bad politically for the administration. Why is there a dead Saudi terrorist walking around in Boston Mass?

Most of America suffers from some sort of PTSD symptoms from 9/11. Just don’t admit to it. If you admit any fears or post traumatic stressors you can be fired and called a biggot. NPR fired Juan Williams for being a normal human. He said that he gets nervous boarding a plane with people in Muslim garb. SO DO I!!!!!! I am also sure that most people do, even other Muslims.
I am about tired of hearing it’s just a handfull of extremists. This so called hand full have just kept the worlds most powerfull military in a constant war, on two fronts, for ten years. So which hand full are we fighting. If it was a handfull one smartbomb and we would be home drinking coffee.
I also would like these liberals to keep their handfull of people argument in mind from now on This could come in very handy. I think it could also come in very handy when they talk about reperations. Not all white people were slave owners. Just a hand full of extremist opressed the blacks. Not all Americans opressed the third world nations, and not all American owe the third world a living. This hand full argument can be used both ways.

she should have asked him when does you mouth stop spewing lies, and when does your brain stop making them up. That would have been better than calling him a liar. It would have tied the two lies together, and disarmed his apology.
