WSAZ has contacted Cabell Huntington Hospital for a statement. They said they will be releasing one soon.

I prefer female doctors..
In gay diversity America maybe women should rethink that. I perfer private nurses who we know and family.
They tried to take my grandma for physical therapy when she was in a coma. My sister stopped them but only after threatening to bop them. They would not listen to my sister because their chart said grandma was scheduled for PT.
All my life I’ve heard similar stories about nursing homes and mental institutions. Don’t know how accurate they are. Wasn’t the Kennedy daughter sterilized prior to her being committed to a care home?
“Sexual intercourse without consent” is RAPE. I hope he gets the 50, Plus a day.
“All my life Ive heard similar stories about nursing homes and mental institutions. Dont know how accurate they are. Wasnt the Kennedy daughter sterilized prior to her being committed to a care home?”
I have too.
More than likly Kennedy’s daughter was sterilized prior to being committed because of Margaret Sanger evil plan to keep the unfit from breeding. A person like Kennedy’s daughter was a perfect candidate because she was “feeble minded” and Sanger wanted all to keep all people like that from having children.
Of course in the institutions they had back then it just made it easier to hide their crimes.
My general understanding has been that Joe Kennedy Sr. had her sterilized just prior to being institutionalized out of a fear of the type things that he believed went on in such institutions.
Interesting. He suspected that kind of thing happened and yet sent his daughter to live there for the rest of her life? What father does that to his daughter?
What a sick son of a bitch.
