Connecticut: Go for the Sex and Driver's License but Not for Medical Care

Staff Writer, J.J. West
Age of Consent / Medical Rights

We all have basic human rights. In the past few decades, the government has seen fit to infringe on these rights and supplant freedom with privileges. No more has this overreach been felt more but in the radicalization of doctors, hospitals, and child protective services. 

Justina Pelletier lived through this invasion with Boston Hospital for over a year. Phoenix Children's Hospital has been engaging in this type of criminal conduct with Melissa Diegel's children: Kayla and Hannah.

Now the state of Connecticut has decided to imprison and medicate a 17-year old because she did not want to treat her cancer with chemotherapy but by more beneficial means through natural adjuvants. 
“It’s a question of fundamental constitutional rights–the right to have a say over what happens to your body–and the right to say to the government ‘you can’t control what happens to my body,'” said Cassandra’s mother’s attorney, Michael S. Taylor. Taylor represents Cassandra’s mother, while a state public defender represents Cassandra.
What this young woman endures is beyond anything a state, hospital, or doctor should have the power to do to another human being.
In September, Cassandra was diagnosed with late stage Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Doctors recommended she undergo chemotherapy as treatment, but the teen refused. Her mother supported her in her decision and told the hospital that they were going to seek a second opinion – but doctors weren’t satisfied and reported the family to DCF under charges of “medical negligence.” The state held a hearing in November, and granted DCF temporary custody of the teen. The court ordered that Cassandra’s mother, Jackie Fortin, “to provide and cooperate with medical care under DCF’s supervision and as recommended by her doctors.”

Under DCF custody, Cassandra was forced to undergo chemotherapy treatments at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. After her first two treatments, Cassandra ran away from home in order to avoid further treatment.

However, her attempt to avoid treatment – treatment that she did not want – only increased DCF’s grip on the case. Cassandra was subsequently removed from the home.Her mother is now allowed to visit only twice a week for two hours. All her visits are supervised by DCF, and the state agency has been granted authority to make all medical decisions concerning the teen.

According to her mother, Cassandra has even been strapped down to a hospital bed for some of these procedures. She has not been permitted to leave her hospital room for approximately four weeks.
This type of behavior from authorities is unacceptable. It is literally legalized torture.

After two weeks of forced chemotherapy mandated by the state, the 17-year old ran away. Now the Connecticut Supreme Court states that that means the young woman is too immature to make her own decisions. Really? Who wouldn't run away after being treated like this young woman has been?

Which Connecticut Supreme Court Justice would agree to be tied down, imprisoned, and force fed poison? Everyone else, as long as it is not them:
The Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that state officials aren't violating the rights of a 17-year-old girl by forcing her to undergo cancer chemotherapy she doesn't want.

Justices ruled Thursday in the case of the girl known in court documents only as Cassandra C., who will be free to make her own medical decisions when she turns 18 in September.
Yes. You are violating her rights. Let's talk about Connecticut's Age of Consent Law:
The Connecticut legal Age of Consent for sexual contact is 16 years old. There are a total of A total of thirty one states have set their age of consent at 16, the lowest age of consent in any state.

The age of consent in Connecticut is raised to 18 in certain scenarios, such as when the older partner is in a position of power such as a non-School teacher, athletic coach, or some other position of power.
Finally, minors UNDER the age of 16 and at least 13 years old can consent to sex with anyone no more then 3 years older then they are.
So in Connecticut a teenager has the legal right to have sex, produce children as well as be given a license to drive a deadly weapon, but cannot make their own medical decisions? Smells like hypocrisy to me.

Maybe if she commits a capitol crime, Connecticut would hold her accountable as an adult and no longer use her as their guinea pig? 

The Connecticut Supreme Court needs to reevaluate itself as well as doctors' and hospitals' behavior. The state should only be called in for extreme cases of person or persons who are in need of assistance. Case in point, Child Protective Services should save children from abusive situations, not in cases where the doctors want to override parental consent or decisions, especially for filling their pocketbooks instead of understanding that barbaric allopathic medicine is not the answer to everything. 

Information on alternative medicines is widely available with a plethora of studies and positive outcome cases. One such case happened twenty years ago. He too ran away from chemotherapy, but the action turned into a blessing:

From the bits and pieces of media coverage since the time Billy ran off, one gets the impression that Billy wound up in California. And from there he discovered cancer-healing protocols for his Hodgkin’s lymphoma. But actually, he never reached California. That was his Greyhound bus destination originally, but he wound up in Houston, TX.

Instead of roaming the streets as many run-away teens do, he was fortunate enough to meet up with fellow skateboarders who helped house him. Billy had no idea of there was a nationwide hunt for his return. His parents had contacted several national news outlets out of concern for his whereabouts and health.

But one day, the father of one of Billy’s skateboarder buddies said he saw Billy on one of the TV shows featuring his runaway from home after five chemo treatments. So Billy decided to return home with one provision: no chemotherapy.

Instead, he would decide on alternative methods. His nationwide exposure had elicited many suggestions from which he could choose.
Billy used 714-X and Essiac tea (recipe) for the same cancer the Connecticut 17-year old has and cured his cancer.

So why is the young woman in Connecticut being forced to take treatments that poison the body instead of using known healing modalities? Money. Power. Control. Diseases of our judicial, medical, and child protective services systems that need to be cured of their hubris with a lawsuit of epic portions when the Connecticut 17-year old turns 18.

There are non-pharmaceutical treatments for cancer, but that would cut into corporate, hospital, doctor, and now state profits. Many such effective treatments are banned in lieu of the more expensive and toxic chemotherapy treatments.

So Connecticut who are you really protecting? A young woman old enough for sex, procreation, and a driver's license? Or the pharmaceutical and hospital industries that do not actually cure anything?
