Protesters Greet Melania Trump at Boston Hospital to Promote Program That Helps Babies Born on Drugs
“This is not a person that we want to come to our home, our hospital.”
First Lady Melania Trump went to Boston Medical Center (BMC) to promote the hospital’s program to cuddle babies born on drugs.
The hatred for the Trump family takes precedence over the promotion of a beautiful program to help babies in need. Even though her visit brought attention to BMC’s program, around 200 BMC employees protested Melania’s visit.
From Fox News:
Outside Boston Medical Center in the city’s South End, as many as 200 workers protested the visit, saying the first lady represented an administration who they say has discouraged immigrants from seeking health care with tough immigration policies. Some carried signs that read “BMC cares for all patients” and “We believe that healthy women = healthy families = healthy society.”
“Families need to be together, that the best way to support children’s development is for them to be with their families,” Carmen Rosa Norona, a psychotherapist working with young children affected by trauma, told The Associated Press. “That being the children, having the possibility to grow up with their families, is a human right in that the policies of separating families are a violation of those rights.”
“This is not a person that we want to come to our home, our hospital,” added Cecilia Girard, a 26-year employee who works as a nurse-midwife.
Some people wore coats mocking the one Melania wore to visit migrant children. Hers said, “I really don’t care. Do U?” Her office insisted it did not contain a hidden message.
As you can see in the video, people wrote on their coats, “I really do care. Do U?”
Instead of concentrating on the protesters, Melania chose to focus on those who needed the attention: the drug-addicted babies.
Melania had a roundtable lunch with BMC president Kate Walsh, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Massachusetts First Lady Lauren Baker, and doctors from the hospital.
Melania learned about BMC’s Cuddling Assists in Lowering Maternal and Infant Stress (CALM) program. Volunteers and other mothers come in to cuddle with babies born addicted to drugs and alcohol as they go through neonatal abstinence syndrome.
Studies have shown this cuddling helps the babies as they go through drug or alcohol withdrawal.
After lunch, Melania went to the Pediatric Intensive Unit to meet with other doctors, along with families and children in the CALM program.
But, again, who cares that she brought attention to this relevant and useful program. Who cares that Melania has a heart of gold and truly cares about other human beings.
This is just more proof her husband has truly broken people.DONATE
