Florida Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital to Allow Forced Genital Surgery on Chase Nebus-Hironimus

The following message is being circulated online amongst informed consent activists in the genital integrity movement, after a Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital employee leaked the location of a young boy’s impending forced circumcision, which could take place as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, June 10, 2015. For background on the Chase Nebus-Hironimus Story, please read here and here. This is a story about family courts attempting to enforce old parenting agreements regarding circumcision, despite the risk to the welfare and safety of a non-consenting 4 1/2 year old boy and a non-consenting mom, because “it’s just what people do.” Chase has a history of serious adverse reactions to anesthesia, keloid scarring, and may have Ehler-Danlos syndrome. He doesn’t have a medical condition that would necessitate a circumcision. It is being requested because of his father’s preference.

The doctor performing this risky surgery on a boy with serious medical contraindications to cosmetic genital surgery does not deserve to have a medical license if he risks this child’s life this coming week. Any hospital hosting this surgery should be more concerned for the child’s safety and welfare than they are for supporting the egos of a doctor or a “father.”


This is a throwaway account. I cannot give you any further information about me. This is NOT my real name. But I work at JDCH and due to my position and job I have gotten to see a lot of what has been going on surrounding Chase’s situation. I want to share what I know because I am so strongly against anyone so much as touching Chase with a ten foot pole. This is what I know – rumor or otherwise – and whether you share it with your followers or not is up to you.
-Chase’s father has not actually met with Dr Birken. From what I understand from his scheduling nurses, they are being ushered in without needing to establish a new patient relationship. Thursday will be their first meeting.
-Dr Birken will cut Chase no matter what Chase says or does in office. I have worked with Dr Birken in his office before and he is a very no nonsense doctor who will do whatever he has to in order to get done what he feels should be done. He has pressured patients and parents into unnecessary or excessive procedures in the past and I have no doubt he will have Chase forcibly restrained and put under anesthesia without regard to Chase’s medical history. Birken is NOT one of the more well loved doctors in our hospital system and that he has agreed to do this does not surprise me. You WILL NOT stop this by trying to reach out to Birken’s office – but you WILL make a big difference through the hospital itself. If you can convince them that their general image will be tarnished or that they may face lawsuits they may bar Birken from taking Chase as a patient.
-Hospital administration is threatening staff that chooses to participate in any sort of walk out, protest, or refusal to come in/work with the patient. Nobody in Birken’s office is allowed to call off sick on Thursday. They have said that they will place anyone who participates in any acknowledgement of Chase’s procedure on leave or will outright fire them for insubordination and violation of HIPPA (because by refusing to come in, protesting, or refusing to work with Birken or Chase they are acknowledging that he is a patient who will be in that day – it is a VERY fine line but the hospital believes they are within their rights).
-There is talk of secretly rescheduling the procedure to TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 10) or even to Friday. A very good friend of mine is a float nurse that was in Birken’s office yesterday and she said that one of the administrators is even considering having Birken be called to “emergency surgery” later today so that Chase can be circumcised, but I do not think this will happen.
-Regardless of when the procedure occurs the hospital will likely hire additional security detail and may also ask the police to be present all day on Thursday. This may mean additional risk for protesters, so those who do choose to protest should bring cameras and be prepared to be as open and obvious about being peaceful as possible.
-Currently the hospital is directing all questions about the case to the director of corporate communications, Kerting Baldwin – and that’s only because if it’s going to one person then all phone calls and emails can be systematically ignored if they are not “important”. I have been told that comments on the Facebook page will likely start being deleted soon (within 24 hours) and that they may shut down commenting entirely.
-Despite discussing taking precautions, hospital administration does NOT think that there will be much to worry about on Thursday. They are PREPARING for the worst but I have personally heard one of the upper level admins say that they would be shocked if there were “more than one or two of those crazy, smelly hippie moms with misspelled signs whose kids are homeschooled and unvaccinated”. That comment will probably stick with me forever. It was wrong on so many levels.
If I find out or hear more before Thursday I will be sure to let your page know.

A Singular Moment in my Life… #CDCwhistleblower Twitter Party

Frustration.

Yes, that is the word. Frustrated, Frustration, Fugly, Forebearing, Frustration.

When thinking about the reality of being a vaccine damaged person, one singular emotion seems to be a theme of my life, and that is in fact Frustrated.

Since I was a baby I have struggled with deadly anaphylaxis that has taken me to deaths door over and over and over again.

I wish I was… blogging

The past couple of years have been so busy. Lots of things have happened in my life but this morning, while lying in bed with my baby before waking to cook breakfast and get my older boys to school, I received a comment that seemed like it was out of the blue if only because I have been too busy for blogging lately. This was the comment.

Image

If you are just now catching up and wondering what or who this refers to, watch this video about baby Indiana Delahunty.

Things like this comment just really get to me. I am so fortunate for my healthy children, and things could have turned into a real tragedy in my life if I had continued down the path of psychiatry 9 years ago. It’s hard to believe it’s been 9 years. But even harder is knowing that there are children out there suffering for the same reasons that I started on that path in the first place. Which is to say, basically no reason whatsoever. I was drugged by my OB/GYN for NO reason whatsoever. In summary, that’s all it was. There was nothing requiring intervention. When your kid runs out in front of a car and almost gets hit, it’s normal to freak out. If your baby nearly dies at two days old, it’s normal to freak out. Even a panic attack would be ok. People do “get over” these things. People don’t need drugs to do it.

If psychotropic drugs were as safe as the candy they seem to be treated like, then go ahead, take your psychiatric drugs. But when there are umpteen million lawsuits for dead babies, suicides, murders, and even criminal defense attorneys employing the “Zoloft defense” – do you really think it’s worth it? Go get some counseling, get some “alternative” healing, anything that isn’t the chemical equivalent of taking LSD, PCP, meth or cocaine.

So what would you never get over? I guarantee you, if your baby dies in utero, you will never get over it. If you have to watch your newborn baby die in the ICU from a preventable side effect of Effexor that you didn’t need to take, you will never get over it. If your child hangs herself in the school bathroom, you will NEVER get over it.

During the past two years I’ve felt as though I have run out of things to say about psychiatric drugs. But messages like this one make it clear to me that I must keep going.

When I reread Indi’s story this morning, and the comments on the blog, I couldn’t help but think to myself that this is so important. Just a few comments up from the one that kept me awake at 5 am, is a post from a mother who lost her baby in the 90s while pregnant on Effexor.

And another writes of a miscarriage at 11 weeks.

If you’re already an activist, please don’t stop. If you’re just a parent reading this blog wondering what is going on, please start doing your research. Spare your family the sorrow that too many others know.

There are many days when I see what my friends are doing and I wonder, why can’t I be doing that? I’d much rather be on a ski trip or going to that concert, or taking a vacation, than doing what I am doing. But waking up at 4:45 am to a message like that makes me think, I’d rather be blogging.

Psychology Today: Retract the article “Benzo Hysteria”

Petition by

Nancy Rubenstein Del Giudice

Benzodiazapine withdrawal has been documented to be forty times harder to withdraw from than heroin, and many people are  disabled for years from protracted withdrawal syndromes. In Britain this is recognized as a public health epidemic. This article suggests that these drugs are safe and non-addictive.

DSM bible DENOUNCED by NIMH!

After decades of blowing billions in tax payer funds on fake science… the NIMH denounces the APA’s DSM and decides that medical tests should be used for diagnosis.

I noticed today that there is a bug affecting youtube playback, where the video randomly stops, not reaching the  full 15:33. I may be correcting this by re-rendering the project file and re-uploading today.
