Unfortunately the government feels otherwise. I have posted before. The child protection laws in almost all states came in a wave in the 80s. They almost always state that the safety of the child is paramount. Paramount is a legal term that means above all other laws and concerns. CPS can break any law, can lie in court, to justify their ends. Parents rights are beneath these laws as well.
A large, well most of the country is blissfully unaware of this. They pop out kids, think they can make their own decisions about healthcare. But the FACT is quite different. There are many cases EXACTLY like this one. Families are messed with, messed up and you would be HORRIFIED. They don't get air time because who wants the world to know their family business? The cases are behind closed doors and secret court orders.
