The medical Gestapo is alive and well in Canada: Couple faces FIVE YEARS in prison for using natural medicine for their child

Medical tyranny

(NaturalNews) Canadian couple, David and Collet Stephan, lost their 19-month-old son Ezekiel early in 2012. When little Ezekiel got ill in February that year, the parents did what they could to help their son get better. Thanks to the family's knowledge of natural medicine, Ezekiel started getting better. Then, just as they thought all was well, things made a turn for the worse. Ezekiel abruptly stopped breathing. The family called for emergency responders and the boy was rushed to the hospital.

However, the boy was unable to be revived, and was eventually taken off life support. The cause of death was listed as meningitis. Now, years later, the mourning parents are being charged for their son's death. They now face five years in prison. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has been investigating the couple for some time, and are now blaming them for the meningitis that ultimately took their son's life. The RCMP asserts that the parents should have taken their boy to the hospital much sooner, and are charging the couple for failing to provide the necessities of life to their son.

"The parents knew the child became ill in February [2012]" the RCMP's Corporal Darrin Turnbull stated to the Canadian media. "It wasn't until March 13 when the child stopped breathing that they activated the health system."

David told the National Post that Ezekiel's symptoms were flu-like, and were managed with natural remedies and great care. "We don't always go to the doctor immediately. If it persists we do, absolutely." The family said Ezekiel was doing fine.

Ezekiel's grandfather, Anthony Stephan, said, "They didn't see the need at the front end because the boy really wasn't that ill." According to Ezekiel's grandfather, the boy "was playing with his dad. He was eating. Everything seemed good." Then, without warning, Ezekiel stopped breathing. After a year of investigation, the Stephans are being accused of their son's meningitis.

"What could possibly be worse than the suffering we've endured for the past year?" said the father, speaking out to The Calgary Herald. "There's nothing in the world that will bring him back. What good could possibly come out of this?"

The couple has three other children.

David's brother, Brad Stephan, told The Canadian Press. "I don't see anybody else getting charged for having meningitis. I almost have to wonder if we don't have an officer somewhere or someone just acting overzealous ... We just feel this is just really over the top and we're not understanding why."

Slow emergency response by Alberta health system could have contributed to the death

David revealed more details about the inefficient emergency response: "It took approx. 40 minutes from the initial 911 call before he was in the care of the attending EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians). When EMT finally arrived, the ambulance was not equipped with the correct intubation equipment for our son, who could not breathe on his own."

"We took it upon ourselves to meet the dispatched ambulance halfway on the highway," David reiterated. How might the slow response of the Alberta healthcare system and lack of EMT equipment have contributed to the boy's inability to be revived?

"The EMTs who attended have indicated to us that they have been frustrated for some time prior to this tragic event, because they have been after Alberta Health Services to no avail to properly equip their ambulances with the proper intubation equipment for small children, the same equipment needed that tragic night," David Stephan said.

Could you fathom being charged for your son's meningitis?

Can you fathom what it would be like to see your child abruptly lose his breath and become unconscious?

Could you imagine calling for help, only to find out that he couldn't be revived?

Could you imagine being charged with your son's death a year later because you didn't reach out to a doctor sooner?

Could you fathom facing jail time because you helped your kid but didn't do the things investigators assumed would have helped more?

Here are some bigger questions: When pharmaceuticals cause the death of a child, how come that drug maker isn't held liable? Home come drug makers don't face prison time for making drugs that cause children to go into anaphylactic shock? Why are vaccine makers allowed to continue poisoning children even after paying $3 billion to American families who have been damaged or have lost children due to vaccines? Where's the prison time for vaccine makers?
