#WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE RIGHT
A CHILD HAS BEEN KIDNAPPED BY THE SYSTEM
February 26, 2021- Pregnant Syesha Mercado, former American Idol finalist, visited the hospital hoping to get her then 13-month-old son Amen’Ra fluids as he made the transition to being bottle-fed.
March 11, 2021- Syesha was confronted by child protective services investigator and armed police officers with racial overtones and false accusations about denying her Son urgent medical care in the form of a B12 shot.
Amen'Ra was placed with a white foster family during a pandemic with increasingly limited access to updates and visitations.
Qualified relatives were not interviewed or contacted.
