Michele Bachmann: Obama Wants to Use Unaccompanied Children for Medical Experiments

Appearing on a show called ‘WallBuilders Live,’ Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann presented her theory that President Obama wants to use the unaccompanied illegal immigrant children for medical experiments.

The whole thing centers around a right-wing conspiracy theory over the case of Justina Pelletier.

RightWingWatch reports that Bachmann has introduced a bill called Justina’s Law after the girl was placed in custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families because of a “dispute between Boston Children’s Hospital and her parents, who were backed by other doctors from Tufts Medical Center, over her medical diagnosis.”

Bachmann’s law would ban “federal funding for medical experimentation for a ward of the State” because the right believes that Boston’s Children Hospital “had received a federal grant to study somatoform disorder which prompted doctors to diagnose Pelletier with that condition so that the state could take custody of her and then use her as a guinea pig in the hospital’s medical experiments.”

Of course, that isn’t the case, and RightWingWatch points out that the “entire narrative is based on a bizarre misreading of the hospital’s policy for allowing Wards of the state to participate in medical research trials, which is actually designed to protect such wards.”

Despite all that, Bachmann now says, “President Obama is trying to bring all of those foreign nationals, those illegal aliens to the country and he has said that he will put them in the foster care system. That’s more kids that you can see how – we can’t imagine doing this, but if you have a hospital and they are getting millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody, and a Ward of the state can’t say ‘no,’ a little kid can’t say ‘no’ if they’re a Ward of the state; so here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can’t even say ‘no.’ It’s sick.”

It is sick. Michele Bachmann has a pretty twisted imagination.

    please listen to the interview… that is not what was said. her concern is foster children, as wards of the court, being legally used for medical research.. her concern is we have so many children in foster care now, wards of the state and Obama wants to add the border kids to a system where we can’t protect children now. The whole interview revolved around Justina’s law. . listen and tell me if this is skewed or accurate. http://www.wallbuilderslive.com/listen.asp?cs=high&mf=mp3… i if you want to call someone out, hear them out. I took the time to before responding.

    Totally off the deep end – and she’s a potential candidate for POTUS?

    The President should sue her. Seems that’s the thing to do these days. There is Freedom of Speech, and then there is slander……

    As much as I hate to go against popular bashing, Michele Bachmann happens to be right on the money with this one It turns out that children who are considered “wards of the State”, are used to fill grants from drug companies to test various new medications and treatments. The above sighted case of Justina Pelletier is only one of thousands of examples of this happening. In that case, Boston Children’s Hospital took control of this child strictly to fill a grant, and tried various drugs for a year, until the parents got the rights back. This child is now wheelchair bound.
    This should not be a partisan issue, and Michele Bachmann is right on this one.

      And yet you offer no proof, facts or truth. Yet another waste of air

  • Cathryn Sykes

    So the President, in addition to being the Anti-Christ, Hitler, Stalin and Satan, is now Josef Mengele? That’s a lot of personalities to cram into one lanky guy….. Facepalm.
