‘Phantom’ Pregnancy or a Stolen Baby!?*

‘Phantom’ Pregnancy or a Stolen Baby!?*

By Jonathan Wolfe

Sister María Gómez Valbuena leaves a court in Madrid on April 12, 2012, after refusing to testify on her alleged involvement in a stolen-babies scheme

For the second time in a month, a pregnant mother has awoken from a caesarian section only to be told she was never pregnant at all.

The latest apparent victim in the scheme is 30-year-old Claudia Aparecida Lopes. But Lopes’ husband, 23-year-old Alexandro Donizete Alves, knows something strange is going on. He’s reported the incident to police and is determined to find out why his newborn child has been taken from him.

“My wife did a pregnancy test at the chemist and it was positive,” Alves said.

“So we made a doctor’s appointment, and he confirmed the pregnancy, even telling us it was a boy. We paid for pre-natal treatment and even went for ultrasound scans. During one of the two scans the doctor told us the birth couldn’t be natural because the child was sitting down, and it needed to be a caesarean.”

Ms. Lopes was prescribed vitamins specifically for pregnant mothers, altered her diet, and took every other health precaution pregnant women do. Why wouldn’t she? She was pregnant. Alves knows the doctor’s story that the pregnancy was imaginary isn’t true.

“My wife had a huge cut across her belly and they simply told us that there wasn’t a baby after all, it was all psychological. That’s when I called the police and registered the occurrence,” he said.

“If the pregnancy was psychological, how come he accompanied the whole pregnancy. If it’s true, then I must have psychological problems too, because I saw the child on the ultrasound and so did he.”

Now, both the civil police and the Medical Council of Minas Gerais (CRM-MG) state are investigating the incident.

“We’re going to hear witnesses and examine all the documents,” Civil Police Chief Claudia Franchi said. “The inquiry will be concluded in 30 days, but it is too early to draw any conclusions.”

Alexandre Rodrigues of the CRM-MG also spoke on his organization’s coming investigation.

“At the moment I don’t know who falsified what,” Rodrigues said.

“We don’t yet know why a caesarian was carried out and everything has to be investigated.

Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo estimate that some 500 babies were born in captivity to pregnant women kidnapped by Argentine security forces, and were given to new families after their mothers were murdered.

We could we dealing with a psychiatrically-disturbed patient. The investigation is to find out exactly where and in what moment the error occurred.We will examine the two ultrasound scans presented by the patient and find out if the doctor carried out the caesarian just on the basis of seeing the scans. We have the testimonies of both parties and they will be investigated.”

Pregnant and Brain-dead, yet Forced to Incubate a Fetus*

When personal arguments take hold, a basic but fundamental question can be missed, as in the U.K. case of 35 year old Alessandra Pacchieri whose baby was taken from her womb without permission, and the autistic man whose teeth were removed with responsible social and health workers remaining anonymous.

In this case, an unborn child of a woman who was brain dead and subject to the electric shock treatments, chemicals, and lack of oxygen to keep the mother technically alive until the baby could be born.   Against the wishes of the family will that child go into adoption as in the case of Alessandra’s child? Given the countless number of children alive in need of adoption, what is the real intention behind bringing a new life into the world that has already been subject to various forms of shock physiologically in what is quit basically a traumatized socio-economic climate where countless mutilated bodies both human and non-human are being discovered daily?

Sanctity of life is amiss at all levels here…

Texas law requires that a pregnant woman be kept alive, regardless of the condition of the baby or her family’s wishes.

A brain-dead woman is being kept on life support against hers and her family’s wishes so her body can incubate her unborn baby, Huffington Post reported.

33-year-old Marlise Munoz from Fort Worth, Texas was 14 weeks pregnant when she died of a suspected pulmonary embolism, a blood clot to the lungs, the week after Thanksgiving.

Her husband, Erick, found Marlise at their home and performed CPR before she was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Electric shocks and drugs started her heart and it continued to beat with mechanical support, but her brain waves were completely flat, with no hope of ever recovering.

As her family planned to say their goodbyes to honor Marlise’s wishes not be kept on life support, they were stunned when a doctor told them the hospital would not comply with the directions, NY Times reported.

The hospital plans on keeping Marlise on life support until her baby is delivered based on an arbitrary law of the Texas Advance Directives Act which states that, “a person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment under this subchapter from a pregnant patient.”

Hospital spokesperson J.R. Labbe said he believed the hospital’s hands are tied: “We can’t withdraw treatment from a pregnant person as the law states,” he told Dallas Culture Map.

This is despite the fact that family members including her husband have publicly stated they do not wish to keep her on life support and have expressed concerned about the condition of the baby.

“That poor foetus had the same lack of oxygen, the same electric shocks, the same chemicals that got her heart going again. For all we know, it’s in the same condition that Marlise is in,” father Ernest Machado, told Dallas News.

Texas is known for having the strictest laws on abortion and prohibitions relating to the standards for cutting off life support to pregnant patients.

The case has sparked an ugly public debate between anti-abortion activists in the state with some accusing the family of “wanting to pull the plug” and get his of his wife and baby.

“This isn’t about pro-life or pro-choice,” Machado said. “We want to say goodbye. We want to let them rest.”

Two days before the case is due in District Court (Friday 24 January 2014), attorneys Jessica Janicek and Heather King who represent the family finds the fetus has suffered fluid buildup in its skull and deformed “lower extremities,” as well as an undetermined heart condition.

“Quite sadly, this information is not surprising due to the fact that the fetus, after being deprived of oxygen for an indeterminate length of time, is gestating within a dead and deteriorating body, as a horrified family looks on in absolute anguish, distress and sadness,” the statement read.
