Chandler, Arizona. Mom Ignores Doctor When Her Sick 2-Year-Old Starts Feeling Better, Child Services Send a SWAT Team at 1 AM.
“What about the parents’ rights to decide what’s best for their child?”
It was dinnertime on February 25 when the pregnant mother took her 2-year-old to the doctor with a fever of over 100. The doctor told her to take him to the emergency room, fearing that because the boy was unvaccinated, perhaps he had meningitis—a life-threatening disease.
The incident comes on the heels of another vaccination uproar in Rockland County, New York where authorities have banned non-vaccinated minors from all public places in order to curb a massive measles outbreak.
A Chandler father provided home-security video of Chandler police breaking down the door of a family’s home for a DCS-requested welfare check of a child with a spiking fever, after parents refused to give police permission to enter their home, saying their toddler son was fine.
Just after 1am, and after DCS had obtained a temporary custody order for the three young kids, police broke down the door and forcibly removed them from the household.
