That’s right, don’t you dare ask any questions. The government really does know best.
You want to have a baby? You’d better not even think of trying to have it at home. And if hospital or government officials ask you questions, you had better cooperate, or they might just take yo kids.
That’s what Scott and Jodi Ferris found out.
Michael P. Farris, attorney and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association has taken up their case.
He said among the issues in the case: social service workers who called police when a new mother wanted tests before authorizing shots for her child, a hospital that ejected the new mom from its property over the issue, a social service “investigation” into the birth, and others.
Jodi had gone into labor early and the midwife they had hoped would deliver their baby encouraged them to head to a hospital. They did.
“Their baby, whom I will call ‘Annie,’ was born in the ambulance in the parking lot of the Hershey Medical Center – a government hospital in Pennsylvania. Hospital personnel arrived very quickly and took charge of both baby and mom,” he reported.
