Doctors Interrogate Children as Informants on Parents’ Behavior
by David Gutierrez
(NaturalNews) Encouraged by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), pediatricians across the United States have begun questioning children about their parents’ habits, in some cases even filing police reports based on this information, according to an opinion article published in the Boston Herald.
Article author Michael Graham recounts that his own children were asked by their doctor whether their parents used drugs and alcohol, owned guns, or were abusive. The doctor did not seek parental permission before asking the questions, nor did he inform them that they were being asked; Graham and his wife found out only after their children came home from the visits.
“The doctor wanted to know how much you and mom drink, and if I think it’s too much,” Graham reports his daughter saying. “She asked if you two did drugs, or if there are drugs in the house. The doctor wanted to know how we get along. And if, well, Daddy, if you made me feel uncomfortable.”
Graham also reports the case of an Uxbridge, Massachusetts man who had his legal gun ownership reported to the police by his daughter’s doctor. The doctor filed a police report after asking the 5-year-old girl if her father owned a gun, then following up with questions to her and her mother about the type and number of the weapons.
Graham blames the trend on guidelines issued by the AAP, which classifies parents as “persons of interest” and encourages doctors to ask children questions in order to uncover inappropriate or illegal behavior.
“The paranoia over parents is so strong that the AAP encourages doctors to ignore ‘legal barriers and deference to parental involvement’ and shake the children down for all the inside information they can get,” Graham writes.
According to Graham, anti-gun advocacy by pediatricians is widespread enough that “some states are considering legislation to stop it.”
“What this interrogation of children demonstrates,” added consumer health advocate Mike Adams, “is just how deeply the medical establishment now believes it has total authority over the lives of patients. This kind of behavior is arrogant, outrageous and should be outlawed,” Adams said.
HERE’S AN EASY SOLUTION: GO WITH YOUR YOUNGER CHILD FOR ALL VISITS INSIDE THE ROOM. Also, inform your doctor, in writing, that these kinds of questions are not to be asked of your child, as you consider it an invasion of YOUR PRIVACY and theirs. Verbalize this to the doc in front of the teen, or child, and explain yourself openly. Personally, I find this OUTRAGEOUS !!! I don’t drink or do drugs, and I don’t own a gun. If docs see bruises on a kid, or the child appears to be calling out for help, that’s different. But fishing is NOT acceptable.

Kids Vaccine Linked to Fever, Seizures
All Kids Must Get Flu Vaccine, Panel Says
Maryland and New Jersey recently set the Bar. Vaccines WILL be mandated and if you don’t like it, you can take your kids out of school. We’ll get to you later. Vaccines will be the delivery system for the worst kind of genetic manipulation this world has ever known. Mothers everywhere know it, and it’s solid in the numbers I ran. HPV being the worst of them. DO NOT GIVE YOUR DAUGHTERS THIS VACCINE. Did you know that there are men on this planet who not only hate women, but view them only as wombs? Nothing like a Tailor Made Womb for thier future warriors, progammed with hate (in advance) and worse. I’m sorry, but you will have to wake up. Do it now.
More and more families are choosing to homeschool for THIS REASON ALONE. They are saying NO to vaccines, and they are saying it with their wallets/jobs and their political clout. ENTER MIKE HUCKABEE.
Mike Huckabee is the ONLY candidate talking about protecting the right of parents to homeschool their kids. Make no mistake, the powers that be, WANT TO INJECT BS into your daughters ! The intention is not just about greed, sadly. It’s way worse than that. This is an educated opinion, based on research I have done for two years, and on the numbers I have run. Even Bipolar disorder is a product of genetic manipulation, through food, water and air, and more. Whether they intended to drive our youth insane, I don’t know, but they are messing with our biology and the freak results are not being discussed. Let’s save the FLOURIDE conversation for another day.
Mike Huckabee understands the desire for homeschooling, and he will uphold parents rights. There is NO MORE IMPORTANT ISSUE TO ME PERSONALLY. I don’t hear anyone else talking about it, or this insane MANDATE FOR VACCINES. When push comes to shove, I have to seriously consider what is most important to me. IT’S THE CHILDREN.
I am not alone. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, learned the hard way. PARENTS WILL FIGHT. Unfortuanatley, the nation was fast asleep to the vaccine debacle in Maryland, and those childen and families lost the fight. It’s now precedent. You will soon learn what I am talking about. If you have kids under 15, be prepared to surrender their arms and bottoms to the state !
Mike Huckabee is a compassionate conservative. More conservative than I like, but THIS is an important issue to our family. Big Time. So, I am looking at him more closely, despite the other issues we part on. Mitt Romney has already shown he has no respect for the lives of little people, of any age. He remains silent on the BLACKWATER killings of women and children. John McCain had better start speaking to MANDATED VACCINES AND THE RIGHTS OF HOMESCHOOLERS AND PARENTS, or I have a brand new topic to rant on.

Please understand who is in control of the FDA, the CDC, the National Institutes of Health and more. It’s not good.
“Governor Romney’s address will replace the previously scheduled presentation by Dr. Lester Crawford, former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Dr. Crawford announced his resignation from the FDA post on September 23rd.”
This is simply more than curious. While looking for connections between Bain Capital and Boston Logan Airport, I stumbled across this. And, it’s one of my favorite issues. THE FDA.
Even if Romney loses, and that is a big IF, he will still be galavanting about the Universe, taking over.

— Vaccine Technologies in the 21st Century — Several recent announcements pushed vaccines back into the limelight of the life-sciences industry. In September, Novartis announced a bid for the shares of Chiron, and GSK agreed to acquire ID Biomedical. This news signaled an intensifying commercial interest in vaccine therapeutics and spawned speculation about this therapeutic category’s prospects and pitfalls. This panel will discuss the dominant trends in this category, focusing on the latest vaccine technologies coming out of Canada and the U.S
