|Justina Pelletier: Before and After|
Here is a story you have not seen pushed in mainstream media circles, nor (to their shame) in "pro-life" circles. But it should be: neglect, abuse stems from an anti-life mentality, perverting health care into an "industry" where human beings are regarded as objects, mere biological units.
Read on about one brave man's stand to protect a young woman from gross medical abuse and malpractice.
Hacktivist Martin Gottesfeld is facing 25 years in a US prison, accused of illegally accessing a Boston hospital’s network. But he says he was protecting children from torture. Martin and his wife Dana shared their plight with RT.Their story centers on Justina Pelletier, who has a rare blood disease. Back in 2013 the hospital diagnosed her symptoms as psychological, and blamed her parents. She was taken into custody and reportedly didn’t receive essential medical aid. This, according to her parents, amounted to torture.“She went from a healthy-as-could-be young lady to a person in a wheelchair, pretty much paralyzed below the hips. Now they [the hospital] are basically admitting after 13 months they were wrong. She’s been in severe pain, non-stop, for 13 months,” Justina’s father said during a TV interview back in 2014.

The Judge, in sentencing Gottesfeld, called his brave actions: “contemptible, invidious and loathsome.” To the contrary, it was the collusion between government and the medical-industrial complex that was, and is contemptible, invidious, and loathsome!
The monstrous persecution of Martin Gottesfeld is a shot across the bow of those who would dare consider taking action against the medical-industrial complex.
Please keep Martin Gottesfeld and Justina Pelletier in your prayers.
Another related and looming catastrophe is the absolute crisis in long-term care (LTC) in Canada and the United States, where abuse, malnourishment, neglect, malpractice,lack of training are the standard, and not the exception. Many of these facilities are actually worse than prisons. Though "person-centered" care is spoken of, it is very rare indeed that people actually receive this type of care. I cannot warn any of you who have older parents: NO NOT place them in LTC. God will be your judge.
