The home of Harvard, MIT & known for excellence in all areas seems to have lost its proverbial mind. Are all the sane citizens on sabbatical? It is overtime to sue the individuals involved in this case & publish their names for the world to see. Never should any of these people have positions of authority again. They should be fired without retirement. The judge should at least be exposed to the public.

The Boston Children's Hospital unit (there for decades) determined to find parents guilty of medical abuse of their children is a disgrace and needs to be severely sanctioned in this case!!! They have committed medical malpractice in not allowing Justina to be seen by her OWN DOCTORS until just very recently! In January last year Justina was ice skating; and now she is confined to a wheel chair and has not even been attending school!!----------------------------------------------------------------- It is MA DCF and Boston Children's Hospital that have committed ABUSE!!
