Who's Scary Now?
by Lady Liberty
Every holiday season, I do the same thing that millions of Americans do: I prepare a kind of "newsletter" recapping the year, and I include a copy of it with my greeting cards. This past Christmas, I also sent a copy of an editorial I had written entitled Thanks and Giving.

Over the last decade, British women who sought pediatric aid risked a diagnosis that could lead not only to the termination of parental rights but also to imprisonment based on "expert" testimony. Perhaps as many as tens of thousands of children have been taken away by the State on the basis of MSBP. Now that diagnosis is being widely discredited in Britain.
