How safe are our children from Medical Kidnapping – when the system behaves in an illegal, corrupt and unjust way? Listening to a podcast yesterday on a UBN Radio show with Tammi Stefano of the National Safe Child Coalition made me wonder about how vulnerable we are as a society when it comes to Social Care. And it makes me dig my heels in even more when it comes to finding a better way.
Of course, we hear about the horror stories of children being taken away by Social Services, as they were once known, and children being placed into foster care. It’s all too true, too real. Of course it happens. It should always happen for the safety of the child but this evidence-based book talks about the horrors of Medical Kidnapping.
It’s like ordering a child through the combined efforts of the medical system and social care, in America, called CPS (Child Protective Services). The radio interview mentions this book, so I got it without hesitation. It’s available on kindle so immediately downloadable. The frightening thing is, they talk about everyone with a child being vulnerable and it’s just a matter of time and whether your ticket has the “wrong” number. This could happen to you. Please be aware of the dangers. I’m going to be doing some more investigations into what happens in the UK. It’s the kind of thing that you just pray is not true, until it happens to you or someone you know.
