The Tea Party Perps in the Death of Camden Pierce Hughes.
By opposing universal health care, including mental health services, members of the Tea Party and far right advocates like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Paul Ryan, and others have blood on their hands in the tragic death of six-year-old Camden Pierce Hughes.
Camden’s mother, Julianne McCrery, has reportedly confessed to killing her little boy and dumping his body on a dirt road in South Berwick, Maine. Media reports also indicate that McCrery on several occasions attempted suicide before coming to New England to kill Camden and again attempting to end her own life.
As shocking and tragic as this story is, what bothers me most is the likelihood that these two lives could have been saved if mental health services had been available to the mother.
Here is a photo of the woman who needed help and never received it.
No sane mother murders her child. But by doing all they can to kill health care reform, the Tea Party and far right have blood on their hands! They have helped to prevent this woman and other like her from getting the care they need.
Lacking moral courage or a social conscience, they would rather call someone like McCrery “scum” or “evil” than do anything to help save her or her child.
The real scum are people like Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Palin, McConnell, Ryan, and Boehner. God forgive them!
