U.S. Healthcare System Really DOES Kidnap Teens

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by Julie Wilson, Natural News:

A Missouri mother has been accused of medical child abuse after requesting a second opinion regarding her 17-year old son’s medical care. Isaiah Rider, who suffers from neurofibromatosis, a rare condition causing tumors on the nerves, was told he could no longer see his mother following a surgery at Luries Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. “One day I woke up, and I was surrounded by a bunch of doctors, and they told me that I wasn’t allowed to see my mother anymore,” said Rider in a YouTube video he made after being placed in foster care following his release. “I was shocked. I was shocked.”

Mother told of agency intervention after the fact

Their story began when he and his mother, Michelle, traveled to Chicago from their home in Missouri to visit specialists recommended by his Kansas City doctors. Rider underwent surgery at Luries hospital but his condition did not improve. He remained in severe pain, suffering from hours-long tremors in what was left of his amputated leg, prompting his mother to request he be transferred to another facility for a second opinion. This resulted in the intervention of Child Protective Services (CPS) in Chicago, which immediately seized custody of Rider, leaving no time for goodbyes.

Offended by Michelle’s audacity to question the hospital’s care, CPS was called without warning, seizing custody of Rider on April 15 and prohibiting any contact between the teenager and his mother. It would be 24 days before they saw each other again.

At the time, Rider says he was so drugged up that he had no idea what was going on. He was reportedly told “his excruciating pain was all in his head,” according to Medical Kidnap, and that he wasn’t allowed to see his mom again, or return to his girlfriend, friends or school back home.

Documents obtained by The Chicago Tribune reveal the hospital’s allegations, including that the mother moved Rider from hospital to hospital, disagreed with doctors’ advice and demanded powerful sedatives to his relieve pain.

Rider disputes allegations that his mother mistreated him; in fact he worships her love and care.
