On his program this week, Dr. Phil covered the unbelievable and outrageous case of governmental abuse involving deathly-ill teen Justina Pelletier.
This is the tragic story of a 15-year-old ice-skating competitor who was yanked from her loving parents by Massachusetts social services, locked up for over a year, and is now confined to a wheelchair because of maltreatment for a metabolic disorder. Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, spoke with Dr. Phil about this case, which involves the Mass. DCF and Boston Children’s Hospital.
BarbWire believes that all government and hospital officials responsible should be criminally tried and that the Pelletier family should be awarded millions in civil damages. But even that would not right this indescribable wrong.
Watch the video above. Words cannot describe the tragedy and totalitarian government abuse involved in this case.
