New reports emerge detailing questionable care at Boston Children’s Hospital

Glenn has been talking about the plight of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier and her family for a number of weeks now. Justina has been kept in Boston Children’s Hospital against her parent’s will since February. The medical facility took custody of her when her parents argued against their daughter’s diagnosis.

Justina was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease a few years ago and was able to live a normal life. In February, she got the flu and was taken to Boston Children’s Hospital to see a specialist. It was at that time the problems began.

A new team of doctors took over Pelletier’s case and immediately questioned her previous diagnosis. They re-diagnosed her with ‘somatoform disorder’ – a mental illness. Her parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier, were not allowed to take their child out of the hospital and were instead escorted out by security. Within four days, they lost custody of Justina.

Now it appears as though Justina isn’t the only child who has received questionable care from the hospital. In an original report, TheBlaze has discovered:

There is a hospital consistently ranked among the top in the United States in various pediatric fields. It has been hailed as having the best physicians and is the teaching hospital for the No. 1 medical school in the country.

But this hospital — Boston Children’s Hospital — is now the target of national debate regarding practices that have resulted in children being taken away from parents. It’s being called the “dark side to Children’s.”

Not only is there the case of a Connecticut teen (Justina Pelletier) who has been held at Boston Children’s Hospital for 10 months after her parents lost custody of her over accusations of medical child abuse – something they vehemently oppose — but there are now a handful of other similar stories coming to light where parents were stripped of their ability to oversee their child’s care at Children’s.

With the assistance of a whistleblower, TheBlaze has compiled a comprehensive report detailing several cases in which Boston Children’s Hospital has made questionable treatment decisions in relation to mitochondrial disease.

“I mean, you can't imagine. As my wife kept saying when we were talking about this story, how can that happen in America? You have to I guess suspend your disbelief that something like this just can't happen in America because it can, and it is happening in five cases now,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Something is radically wrong at that hospital.”

While Glenn has a lot of experience with children’s hospitals around the country because of his daughter Mary and has “supported children’s hospitals in every city” he has lived in, Glenn admitted he would not trust the care of his children to Boston Children’s Hospital.

“But I will tell you: If my child was sick, I would not bring them to Boston Children's Hospital. There is no way,” Glenn said. “With what I know at this point, there is no way I would admit my child to Boston Children's Hospital. There is something very wrong. “

To make matters worse, in the case of the Pelletier family, a gag order has been placed on the case, forbidding the family and the doctors involved from speaking out. That has made it all but impossible to raise awareness for this growing problem.

“They can't do any interviews. They can't talk about it. We can't reach out to them because they're under a gag order… That's wrong,” Glenn said emphatically. “I'm a parent… It goes against nature's laws. I really, truly believe it goes against nature's laws to tell a parent that they are no longer the parent and so they cannot speak out against what the State has done… That's my child…  I have a right!”

“They are taking these children away and then telling the parents they have no right to speak out, or they'll go to jail,” he continued. “And the parents, they know if they speak out, they will never get their kids back. What would you do?”

Just as he did last week, Glenn asked the audience to visit Mitoaction.org to learn more about the Pelletier’s case and to learn more about how to get involved. He also asked that people to share TheBlaze’s latest report about other incidents involving Boston Children’s Hospital.

“Please read this story and pass it on to a friend… This is everybody's child, and I don't mean that in a progressive way. I mean: If you don't say something about this with somebody else's child, who's going to say something when it's your child? Please. I beg you,” Glenn concluded. “This family is being so wronged by the State, and there is no other Christmas gift that you could give. Get together with your whole family. If you only have $100 and you're thinking, ‘You know, what can I get for Christmas?’ Talk to your kids. Your older kids would be able to understand… It's obscene. Anything you can do to help. Go to Mitoaction.org.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
