The horrific saga of Maryanne Godboldo’s battle with domestic terrorists in the government of her home state of Michigan appear to finally be coming to an end. TheDetroit Free Pressreports that two higher courts have confirmed the ruling of a lower court several months ago that Godboldo’s refusal to administer the dangerous Risperdal drug to her daughter was fully legal, and that all charges and actions taken against her by the state were unwarranted.
In case you missed the story, Child Protective Services (CPS) in Michigan sent a SWAT team and tank to Godboldo’s Detroit home back in April after the mother refused to keep giving her 13-year-old daughter Risperdal (risperidone), a dangerous schizophrenia drug that had been causing her daughter to experience severe adverse reactions. Godboldo’s doctor had recommended that she discontinue use of the drug, but CPS felt otherwise, and decided to launch a full-scale terrorist raid on the woman’s home, where they proceeded to illegally kidnap her daughter (http://www.naturalnews.com/032090_M…).
For months, these domestic terrorists held Godboldo’s daughter, Ariana, in captivity at a CPS facility in Northville, Mich., until finally, after a long and grueling court battle, it was determined that Godboldo’s choice in taking her daughter off the dangerous drug was fully legal. In fact, when she first began administering Risperdal to Ariana, it was plainly stated in the consent document she signed that Ariana was free to “stop taking it at any time” (http://www.naturalnews.com/032191_C…).
Now, the obvious has once again been reaffirmed by two higher courts — that Godboldo and every other parent in the US has a God-given right to stop administering dangerous drugs to their children at will. But the damage has already been done, as Godboldo has had to be without her daughter for months, and has had to battle the state in court during that time for illegally terrorizing her family and causing untold mental anguish.
“Thank you for just doing your job and following the law,” said a weeping Godboldo the morning after the rulings affirmed her God-given right to choose what is best for her daughter. But the state is apparently not finished trying to terrorize Godboldo. According to reports, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office is actually appealing the decision, alleging that it had every right to raid Godboldo’s home and kidnap her daughter.
