It has been more than 7 months since Medical Kidnap published the story of 3 breastfeeding, homebirthed babies being seized by CPS in the state of Washington. Cleave and Erica May Rengo lost their children when someone worried about their homebirth called paramedics and their 10 month old was discovered to have eczema. Even though their were no major problems, and the Rengos were treating the eczema with holistic treatments, their babies were taken into custody by CPS, and they have reportedly been jumping through hoops ever since to get their children back.
They still don’t have them back.
The original story has been shared over 1 million times on Facebook:
“Why Aren’t People Getting Riled Up About This? Where Are the Protests?”In a recent interview with Medical Kidnap, Erica May asked why more people are not upset over the injustice that her family, and thousands of others, are facing.
“People need to stand up and say, ‘Hey, we need to DO something.’ Where is the representation for loving families across the country? They [the CPS system] have only hurt the children they’ve taken away. Where are those who stand up for the women and children? Where are the Christians? Why aren’t people getting riled up about this? Where are the protests?”- See more at: http://medicalkidnap.com/2015/06/30/rengo-childrens-health-deteriorates-in-state-custody-parent-visitation-cut-off/#sthash.zEdAVIim.dpuf
