Default Babies gasping: Michigan sheriffs to do "child abuse raid" on hospitals?

PREGNANT WOMEN: Do NOT let the MD or CNMwife clamp your baby's cord until
it has stopped pulsating and your baby is breathing and pink.^^^

(^^^If resuscitation is needed when your baby is born insist in advance in
writing that it be done with the placental circulation intact. See the
recommendation of George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB, FACOG, below.)


MICHIGAN SHERIFF'S: Retired obstetrician George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB,
FACOG has done more than any other OB to expose mass child abuse by OBs...

George appears worried that you will make a "child abuse raid" "blindly."
(See below.)

George has suggested that I should more clearly address the gruesome
spectacle of MDs and CNMwives intentionally causing fetal heart rate
decelerations before your raid.

BE ADVISED: ALL unnecessary fetal heart rate decelerations intentionally
caused by MDs and CNMwives are child abuse - including those caused by the
gruesome thumb/finger pinching (temporary cord clamping experiment) of
George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB, FACOG. (Sorry George - but you have no right
to experimentally cause fetal heart rate decelerations.)


SHERIFFS: CHECK MY INTERPRETATION...

1. I *believe* George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB, FACOG is indicating that it
is **OK** for MDs and CNMwives to intentionally cause fetal heart rate
decelerations by TEMPORARILY depriving babies of blood/oxygen from the
placenta....

2. I *believe* George is agreeing with me that it is CHILD ABUSE when MDs
and CNMwives cause those fetal heart rate decelerations then PERMANENTLY
deprive babies of blood and oxygen from their placentas by cutting the cord
before it has stopped pulsating.


BIZARRELY,

George *appears* to be saying that - if OBs and CNMwives persist - a "child
abuse raid" by sheriffs should NOT take place.

He appears to be saying that MDs and CNMwives should be allowed to continue
abusing babies en masse - sometimes causing permanent brain damage. (See
George's statement, "I know..." below.)

George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB means well - but he is - first and foremost -
protecting his fellow OBs - not babies.

George is pretending that immediate cord clamping child abuse should only be
reported if the sheriff suffered immediate cord clamping! See below.


INTERESTING: MORE MASS CHILD ABUSE BY OBs...

George is ignoring his fellow OBs closing birth canals up to 30% and KEEPING
birth canals closed up to 30% when shoulders get stuck...

Keeping the birth canal closed when shoulders get stuck causes OBVIOUS
asphyxia known to cause PERMANENT brain damage.

The baby's head sticking out mom's vagina is BLUE! Better pushing - BAD
McRoberts - or better pushing and allowing the birth canal to open - GOOD
McRoberts solves the problem in many cases...

WHY are OBs waiting till babies' shoulders get stuck before offering the
"extra" up to 30%?!!!

REGARDLESS whether immediate cord clamping is child abuse...

SHERIFFS: For simple PROOF that OBs are knowingly closing birth canals -
and simple instructions on how women can allow their birth canals to OPEN
the "extra" up to 30%...

See I ain't no Semmelweis, but...

Subject: Michigan baby 'stranglings': Dr. Morley to benefit sheriffs'
babies? (by ...


Dr. Gastaldo:

I am extracting short exerpts from your ramblings (printed in red) to
illustrate your futility and incompetence in this field:

BIZARRE!

Again, how can George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB FACOG know that producing
fetal
heart rate deceleration "indicating asphyxia sufficient to cause brain
damage" is of no significance?!

The phrase "indicating asphyxia sufficient to cause brain damage" is not
mine. It is a quote from an ACOG article on cerebral palsy.

#### You quoted the ACOG article on cerebral palsy using the phrase
"indicating asphyxia sufficient to cause CEREBRAL PALSY"...

#### Why are you now sending me to another of your publications?

If you read my latest publications on HIE and cerebral palsy at:

www.cordclamping.com

#### How about we stick with the article I quoted...

you may just be able to comprehend that ASPHYXIA DOES NOT CAUSE BRAIN
DAMAGE!

#### I comprehend that you quoted ACOG using the phrase "asphyxia
sufficient to cause CEREBRAL PALSY."

#### I comprehend that you changed the phrase - "asphyxia sufficient to
cause BRAIN DAMAGE" - and now you wish to attribute you transcription error
to ACOG.

#### Please correct me if I am incorrect in my comprehension.

Hypo-perfusion of brain tissue due to hypotension causes brain damage. I
know that,

#### You cannot possibly know that the temporary asphyxia of your
gruesome experiment does NOT cause brain damage, however slight, however
temporary.

and that's how I know that "these fetal heart rate decelerations are of no
significance" in relation to causing cerebral palsy.

#### I did not say that you cannot know that fetal heart rate
decelerations caused by your gruesome experiment are of no significance "in
relation to cerebral palsy."

#### I said only that you cannot know that they are of no significance.


Can YOU describe and define the different types of fetal heart rate
decelerations to the Michigan Sheriff's Association so that they can
understand what they mean before they do their child abuse raid?

#### Again - as I told Michigan sheriffs (see above): BE ADVISED: ALL
unnecessary fetal heart rate decelerations intentionally caused by MDs and
CNMwives are child abuse - including those caused by the gruesome
thumb/finger temporary clamping experiment of George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB,
FACOG.

Can YOU defend the use of the word "strangling" to the agencies to which
you want me to report child abuse, when strangling has been immediately
corrected and prevented in every case by lung ventilation?

#### Simple. When you are pinching off the cord with thumb and finger -
THAT is strangling off BLOOD - albeit temporarily.

#### When OBs and CNMwives CLAMP the cord - and cut it - they strangle
off blood PERMANENTLY. This can cause hypo-tension/hypo-perfusion - and as
you say: "Hypo-perfusion of brain tissue due to hypotension causes brain
damage. I know that..."

For your information, My publications are just that, PUBLIC, and the
Michigan Attorney's General Office and the Michigan Community Health
Department are thus well informed regarding the matter of immediate cord
clamping, and its ethical and legal implications. They do not need your
reckless nonsense.

#### You are FAILING to make MANDATORY public documents. My "reckless
nonsense" is that you suspect child abuse is occurring - yet you are failing
to do the MINIMUM required by law to stop it. See Michigan child abuse
reporting law quoted below. You are a mandatory reporter.

Your attempts to turn the Michigan Sheriff's association into a blind,
misinformed lynch mob do not promote the cause of sensible umbilical cord
management and the prevention of cerebral palsy; indeed, they seem to be
aimed at promoting cerebral palsy as do your crude attempts to discredit and
disparage me...

#### George, you have done some wonderful work to prevent cerebral palsy.
But you discredit yourself by so obviously failing to do the MINIMUM
required by law to help the children you say you are trying to protect. As
I've said before, you are - first and foremost - protecting your fellow
OBs - not babies.

#### Me (or better, you) urging the sheriff to simply STOP IMMEDIATE CORD
CLAMPING and thereby offer babies the protection of laws specifically
designed to protect them is NOT an action aimed at promoting cerebral palsy!

: ( George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB FACOG advises a GRUESOME experiment:
the gruesome umbilical cord pinching (baby asphyxiation) experiment of
George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB FACOG ) Could promoting cerebral palsy
possibly be for your own benefit?

#### George - as most babies are denied the use of significant amounts of
their blood - you are failing to do the MINIMUM required by law to protect
them. You are thereby promoting cerebral palsy - FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR
PROFESSION. See below.

There are some professions that profit immensely from injured and brain
damaged children - neonatologists, pediatric neurologists, trial lawyers and
chiropractors who treat spastic children with physical therapy for ever.

#### When MDs CAUSE spastic children - it is a good thing there are people
to treat them - including - I suppose some chiropractors - though I do not
know of any.

#### The medical profession as a whole profits immensely by your failure
to do the MINIMUM required by law to protect children.

"We both know the answer - George the OB is (first and foremost)
protecting OBs - not babies."

You accuse me of "protecting" obstetricians; I do.

#### Thank you for acknowledging this.

I try my best to prevent them from causing brain damage; their main danger
is from trial lawyers.

#### No, the main danger for obstetricians is doing senseless things that
cause brain damage - trial lawyers are just a symptom.

Their best protection is a healthy child.

#### Yep - but OBs are not the people who need protection. When children
are being abused en masse by obstetricians - CHILDREN'S best protection is
the Child PROTECTION Statute.

First and foremost, "George the OB" is protecting the babies --

#### False. First and foremost, George the OB is protecting
obstetricians.

after that, the OB's don't need protection.

#### Again, thank you for acknowledging that you are protecting OBs....

Now, Dr, Gastaldo, why would you want OB's to lose that protection and
produce cerebral palsied babies?

#### OBs are producing cerebral palsied babies WITH your protection - you
are failing to do the MINIMUM required by law to protect babies!

Dr Gastaldo, do you do physical therapy on brain damaged children?

#### No, I am unlicensed by choice ever since a man calling himself
Michael Schroeder, attorney for the Calif. Chiro Bd of Examiners told me it
was outside my scope of practice to tell pregnant women that OBs are
knowingly closing birth canals.

#### I recently again asked the California Board of Chiropractic
Examiners to help stop the related obvious (sometimes fatal) spinal
manipulation crime of MD-obstetricians.

See A simple question for Calif. Chiro Board...
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2607

#### PREGNANT WOMEN: For simple PROOF that OBs are closing birth
canals - and simple instructions on how to allow your birth canal to OPEN
the "extra" up to 30%...

See I ain't no Semmelweis, but...
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2591

Would the abolition of cerebral palsy adversely affect your income? Or
other chiropractor's incomes?

#### The abolition of cerebral palsy would affect the income of ALL
persons who charge to treat cerebral palsy. I don't treat it. I don't know
any chiros who do.

Have you ever referred a cerebral palsy case to a trial lawyer?...Are your
motives as GRUESOME as my experiment?

#### George, your experiment IS gruesome - and trial lawyers are NOT the
problem here.

#### Getting back to asphyxia again...

#### I'm wondering why you are silent about your fellow OBs (and CNMwives)
routinely closing birth canals and KEEPING birth canals closed when
shoulders get stuck...

See again: I ain't no Semmelweis, but...
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group...t/message/2591

#### Please make those mandatory reports, George.

#### Thanks for reading.

#### Sincerely,

#### Todd

#### Dr. Gastaldo )

#### PS As always, I am in favor or pardons in advance for MDs and MBs.
MDs and MBs are just academic prime cuts forced through this culture's most
powerful mental meatgrinder - medical school.

#### Pardons in advance would allow MDs and MBs to keep doing their valid
medical work, making money to pay the inevitable massive civil damages cause
by their massive crime.

#### My thanks to the woman whose email inspired me to write this post.
Yes, I guess I am hard on George - but the obvious priority is protecting
babies - not delicate OB sensibilities. George has done a great job - he
should be lauded for his amazing work - but it should now be applied
immediately - babies are gasping this very second due to obvious OB child
abuse....

MICHIGAN SHERIFF'S (via the Michigan Sheriffs' Association

Most babies are being partially "strangled" at birth. Sound crazy?
Keep reading. "Strangle" is my word - babies are being routinely cut off
from their oxygen prematurely - producing indications of "asphyxia
sufficient to cause brain damage." This is a ROUTINE obstetric practice!

According to GEORGE MALCOLM MORLEY, MB, ChB, FACOG (of Northport, MI?),
immediate clamping of umbilical cords (standard practice) produces
indications of "asphyxia sufficient to cause brain damage." You MIGHT just
be able to prevent a case of CEREBRAL PALSY!
http://www.cordclamping.com/acog-cp.htm

If Dr. Morley starts generating suspected child abuse reports - PLEASE
don't ignore those reports. Maybe you could all respond to THIS report from
this lowly DC? I'm hoping at LEAST that you sheriffs will tell your friends
and family about the massive OB baby "strangulation" crime I am reporting
thanks to Dr. Morley's essay (URL above). The best thing would be for you
to simply go into hospitals and stop the practice of immediately clamping
umbilical cords in Michigan. How hard can it be? Sheriffs in other states
could follow suit... Michigan sheriffs could put an end to the massive OB
crime NATIONWIDE by next week - by simply contacting their sheriff
colleagues in other states!

I've heard that paramedics and ambulance personnel are trained to
immediately clamp/tie cords - and (per Donna Young) 911 operators advise
people to immediately clamp/tie with "shoelaces." They should be contacted
too...


PREGNANT WOMEN: YOUR BABY'S UMBILICAL CORD

Everyone knows that babies breathe through their umbilical cords until
they start breathing with their lungs - i.e. - they get their oxygen through
their umbilical cords.

PLEASE read the gruesome umbilical cord pinching (baby asphyxiation)
experiment of George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB FACOG below.

Note that actual CLAMPING AND CUTTING THE CORD (as opposed to
temporarily pinching it shut) DOES cause "asphyxia sufficient to cause brain
damage."

Do not let the OB immediately clamp your baby's cord.

Let it stop pulsating first.


DOES GEORGE THE OB SUSPECT CHILD ABUSE?

OPEN LETTER (archived for global access; see below)

George Malcolm Morley, MB ChB FACOG
P.O. Box 181
Northport, MI 49670
USA (perhaps an old address?)


George,

Thank you for your quick response.

You have done a WONDERFUL job exposing rather obvious OB crime.
http://www.cordclamping.com/acog-cp.htm

You apparently agree with me that it is child abuse to PERMANENTLY
produce in neonates indications of (as you say) "asphyxia sufficient to
cause brain damage."

But apparently you haven't been reporting...

If you do agree with me, please report to the sheriff immediately in
accord with mandatory suspected child abuse reporting laws - and KEEP
reporting regularly until the OB crime ends.

REMEMBER: Filing mandatory suspected child abuse reports is
EDUCATIONAL - you are educating sheriffs about mass child abuse by OBs.
(Female sheriffs have babies and of course many male sheriffs have wives who
have babies. Even if sheriffs don't immediately act to help ALL babies,
*their* babies may benefit.)

REMEMBER ALSO: Filing mandatory suspected child abuse reports does NOT
mean you have to stop educational efforts not specifically directed at
sheriffs - but in these latter - why not begin encouraging other OBs to join
you in reporting to the sheriff - regularly - until the massive OB crime
ends?

Two last notes:

1. Filing suspected child abuse reports is indeed MANDATORY (assuming
you suspect child abuse)...

2. No child abuse laws require the reporter to first determine if the
sheriff has been similarly abused. (Many sheriff's probably *were*
similarly abused - but where did you get this silly idea?)

George, please do the MINIMUM required by law to stop OBs from
senselessly producing "asphyxia sufficient to cause brain damage."

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Your friend,

Todd

Dr. Gastaldo


PS George, I'm assuming you are still in Northport, Michigan...

Here's the relevant Michigan law:

"722.623 Persons required to report child abuse or neglect...(1) An
individual is required to report under this act as follows...(a) A
physician...who has reasonable cause to suspect child abuse or neglect shall
make immediately, by telephone or otherwise, an oral report...Within 72
hours...the reporting person shall file a written report as required in this
act..."

BUT...

"The written report shall contain the name of the child and a
description of the abuse or neglect..."

http://www.michiganlegislature.org/m...623&highlight=

Obviously, oral reports can be made.

Written reports may be a problem...

If HIPAA confidentiality requirements deny access to names of children -
perhaps this requirement for the written report can be waived since most
children have their cords immediately clamped...

Although I think sheriffs everywhere are empowered to investigate
reports of suspected child abuse and neglect....

According to one website, the State of Michigan's Family Independence
Agency/FIA is responsible for investigating reports of suspected child abuse
and neglect.
http://www.michigan.gov/fia/0,1607,7...1208--,00.html

Mary L. Marois is the FIA contact in your county...

I will cc Mary via:

BTW, it is conceivable that your efforts might be amplified by
protecting adult medical students who are being taught to perform the crime
by their MD superiors...

Subject: On the upside of George's error to directing a
hand-gripping hand-seqeeez...


Dear Dr.:
:

Thank you for your diatribe regarding finger / thumb occlusion of the
umbilical cord on a healthy neonate.

##### George, the folks at
www.dictionary.com say:\Di"a*tribe\ (?;
277), n. [L. diatriba a learned discussion, Gr. ?,

##### They also say: di·a·tribe n. A bitter, abusive denunciation.

##### I guess I am somewhat bitter; but it is hardly "abusive" of me
to point out that you are failing to read and understand child protection
statutes. As noted above, one does not - as you aver below - have to
determine whether the sheriff was similarly abused before reporting
suspected child abuse.

From your various conflicting statements

##### If I have made what you perceive to be conflicting statements,
point them out and I will resolve the conflict if I perceive it. I concede
that if I do not perceive the same conflict you perceive - it may be because
I am biased. But then again, perhaps you are the biased one here. As I
have said, by failing to report child abuse, you are - first and foremost -
protecting your fellow OBs - not babies. I still believe this is the case.
You have a HUGE conflict to resolve. Do the MINIMUM required of you by law
in order to protect babies OR - continue NOT to do the minimum - in order to
protect OBs. Perhaps I have made conflicting statements - but you are
indeed conflicted - are you not?

I am given to conclude that you have not had much personal experience
delivering babies,

##### One does not need much personal experience delivering babies to
discuss the FACT that you are failing to report rather obvious child abuse -
even as you laudably try to expose it by causing it temporarily - reversibly
you say...

and even less experience and ability in rational analysis of the
English language, particularly in relation to the meaning of statements in
relation to the context of the whole. This disability is pronounced in
Attention Deficit Disorder in which the meaning of one statement is not
correlated with prior or subsequent statements.

##### Pejoration noted. I do not know whether my cord was clamped
immediately.
,
The "finger-thumb" occlusion of the cord for 15 - 30 seconds is
harmless because it is REVERSIBLE.

##### I suppose that strangling a child for 15 - 30 seconds is also
reversible - but that does not mean it is not child abuse. If you have
evidence for your claim that pinching the cord
between thumb and finger to produce fetal [neonatal?] heart rate
deceleration "indicating asphyxia sufficient to cause brain damage" is of no
significance - please provide it.

On release of the pressure, the child returns rapidly to normal.

##### Intentionally producing fetal [neonatal?] heart rate
deceleration "indicating asphyxia sufficient to cause brain damage" may or
may not leave the child "normal."

It occurs naturally (sometimes more severely) in many deliveries when
the cord is around the neck.

##### Yes. Accidents do happen - accidents occur naturally. But we
do not CAUSE temporary asphyxia accidents "to EDUCATE" as you say.

The correct treatment is to release the cord from around the neck; the
wrong treatment is to clamp and cut it -- THIS IS NOT REVERSIBLE. The
purpose of the "finger-thumb" procedure is to EDUCATE doctors and midwives
in correct cord management.

##### TRANSLATED: You propose TEMPORARILY producing indicators of
"asphyxia sufficient to cause brain damage" (child abuse) to expose *more
serious* child abuse - PERMANENTLY producing indicators of "asphyxia
sufficient to cause brain damage" - gotcha.

This purpose and meaning is apparent in my following paragraphs that
state why the "finger-thumb" procedure is harmless and why clamping and
cutting the cord is harmful and may produce brain damage such as attention
deficit disorder.

##### George, for argument's sake, let us say that TEMPORARILY
producing indications of "asphyxia sufficent to cause brain damage" is not
child abuse - and only PERMANENTLY doing so *is* child abuse. WHY AREN'T
YOU REPORTING?!

To correct the situation, I prefer educational methods rather than
calling the sheriff, as I do not know when the sheriff's cord was clamped.

##### George, what is best for babies is the preference. Besides, you
can do BOTH. I believe 100% of babies would want you doing both... One
does not - as you aver - have to determine whether the sheriff was abused
before reporting suspected child abuse to him.

I hope you do not have difficulty understanding and correlating these
three paragraphs.

Dr. G. M. Morley
