But for how long?

He was removed from his Brownsdale home, southwest of Rochester, because doctors feared his mother and father wanted to discontinue his HIV medications.

Lindsey Nagel and newborn son, Rico
I am getting sicker by the minute, after reading a story of horrific abuse of power by the medical establishment that broke early this morning.
Tragedy has stricken a newborn infant, being held in the hospital affiliated with the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota. A court ordered that Rico Martinez Nagel be removed from his mother’s breast by a Sheriff, and he is now being force fed and given several drugs, including the notoriously toxic AZT (aka zidovudine), despite being apparently healthy in every respect, other than a positive HIV-antibody test result.… Read the rest
