Oregon Couple Loses Children due to "Low IQ"Earlier this year (May, 2017) we covered the story of Amy Fabbrini and Eric Ziegler of Bend, Oregon, who have been fighting to prevent Oregon Department of Human Services' Child Protection Services from terminating their parental rights to their children for nearly four years. The agency has deemed the couple "incapable" of parenting. CPS claims that the couple cannot provide for their children because they are believed to be intellectually limited. Two of their children were removed shortly after birth, before the couple even had a chance to parent them. This label of "incapable" placed on Amy and Eric comes as a shock to those who know the couple, given that both of the parents graduated from high school with a standard diploma, and both ranked in the middle of their graduating class. Since we have published Amy and Eric's story, it has gained the attention of other media sources. While we are happy anytime this problem of child kidnapping by state Child "Protection" Services gains media attention, the public needs to understand that these problems are systemic and are an epidemic - they are not isolated cases. They represent a very well-funded (many billions of dollars) state-sponsored system designed for only one purpose: to remove children from families. Once one understands the reasons why these stories happen, it will easily be seen that this is a very corrupt system, and we are justified in referring to the actions as "kidnapping," and to the system overall as a "child trafficking" system. We are not choosing to use emotional language to highlight a few egregious cases. We are accurately describing what is happening all across the United States, every single day.
Oregon Couple Loses Children due to "Low IQ"
I am betting that these parents would be BETTER parents than most parents with higher IQs. I am betting the main ingredient in their parenting skills is LOVE. I am betting these children won't be handed a tablet and be told, "Now leave me alone" while the parent gets back to their iPhone. I am betting these parents will spend some old fashioned time with their children teaching them about what's really important in life. I'm betting their toys will be simple and few. I'm betting these children won't be spoiled brats with more toys than they know what to do with and always wanting more. I'm starting to question the IQs of the people who took them away.
