Parental Freedom of Choice Denied – with Lethal Results
This is not an uncommon story in the US today. Freedom of choice is being removed from parents, and given to the medical industry, with disastrous and traumatic effects on families. Alexander’s parents were lied to by doctors and threatened with legal action if they did not comply.
In August 1998 at age two, Alexander Horwin was diagnosed with the most common pediatric brain tumor, medulloblastoma. Brain cancer in very young children is increasing at the greatest rate. This little one endured two brain surgeries. His parents located the best non-toxic therapy they could find that had proven successful in treating brain cancer – but the FDA denied the family their choice of treatment.
Medicine by Violence
The oncologists told the parents that without their “state-of-the-art” chemotherapy, the cancer would soon return.So chemo was started in October 1998. The protocol was entitled CCG 9921. When his parents hesitated to bring Alexander in for chemo, the oncologists were already gearing up to take him by court order.
Alexander completed his third month of chemotherapy in December 1998 and died in January 1999. He was just two and a half years old.
The Disgusting Truth
Another truly revolting fact now emerged… the so-called “state-of-the-art” chemo protocol had been proven ineffective in pediatric brain tumors many years before. In fact, in 1994, it had been discredited and discontinued, due to the many child deaths. But now they were pushing it again, and giving many parents no choice.
The doctors said : the regulations state that if a child survives the treatment, and cancer still exists, parents may then “be permitted” to choose an alternative treatment. America stands by and lets this horror continue?
They also told the parents that the side-effects of Alexander’s chemo might include any of the following: low hemoglobin, low white blood cells, low platelets, infection, need for blood transfusion, need for platelet transfusion, pain, nausea, vomiting, hair loss, skin injury, heart damage, lung damage, liver damage, kidney damage, loss of hearing, small stature, hormonal problems such as low growth hormone or low thyroid hormone, infertility, second cancer, intellectual decline, worsening of neurological symptoms, ineffectiveness, and death. Oh yes, this sounds like a good do-no-harm treatment for a child.
Doctors Without Compassion
The doctors, whose first sworn duty is to do no harm, were more than willing to force this upon a child, and charge the suffering parents a financial premium for a disproved and deadly treatment.
As a registered nurse who spent time on the oncology ward, I saw that chemo is a worse way to die than cancer, and to push this on a child is a monstrous thing. Ruth
After his death, his parents had Alexander’s tumor tested for the cancer-causing virus that has been present in vaccines since about 1960 – SV40 – a monkey virus. It was present. Read More…
About Childhood Cancers
1999: the International Journal of Health Services published a report in which they stated that the “rising childhood cancer rate represents a far more serious problem in the United States than previous reports have suggested… the largest rise (54 percent) occurred in children diagnosed before their first birthday.” Childhood cancers have increased along with vaccinations in the USA.
