CPS has apparently lied to, threatened, manipulated, brainwashed, and coercised Katie into receiving chemo treatments again against Katie's own voiced objection on television on September 19, 2005 to anymore chemo treatments. Katie said at that time that no matter what CPS did or say she would not change her mind. So what horrible things did CPS do to get her to submit?

CPS had shut off all communication and visitation between Katie and her parents with a court order since September 20, 2005. I am not a lawyer, but if you get someone to agree to something under threats, coercision, and falsehood, than that document or agreement is invalid. So I believe they are now treating Katie against her consent and that constitutes an assault and battery.

Of course they will counter with Katie is a minor and can't consent or refuse treatment. But if determined to be a mature minor Katie can consent or refuse treatment. CPS was presented with an offer by our attorney to determine if Katie was a mature minor and an offer for an alternative treatment acceptable to Katie. CPS has repeatedly told her "Katie you will die without this treatment." CPS brought in tons of friends to reinforce that statement. Talk about emotional abuse and stress! Putting a cancer patient through this and separating her from her parents and family has got to be the most inhuman horrible crime. This sure seems like a hate crime because of our religion or ethnic background.

The only persons who have the right to make medical decisions for Katie are her parents. That right was taken away by a court order with no real evidence or proof of any kind. Yes, courts can do that in an emergency situation where someone might die. This was never an emergency situation so the court was not justified in acting. The court acted on an inaccurate and misleading affidavit signed by CPS worker Linda Kim Garcia, which until proven in court is only heresay.

Meanwhile the damage that this has caused to Katie, both mentally and physically is tremendous and irrepairable. The stress and emotional trauma that this has caused to myself and Michele and the boys is immense. The expense is unimaginable and devastating to my family. It is no wonder everyone loses to CPS as no one can afford to defend themselves.
