Boston Hospital Stops Reporting Child Abuse Because ‘Structural Racism’

The ‘woke’ mind virus is in full force at a hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, after reports emerged that they have cut back on reporting child abuse to authorities due to, you guessed it, “structural racism.”

Attempts to sweep the abuse of innocent children under he carpet is now being aided by “woke” ideology.

On Tuesday, the hospital announced that after finding black mothers were more likely to be reported to authorities for child abuse, it would take steps to avoid perpetuating “structural racism.”

Mass General Brigham, a nonprofit healthcare system, announced: (Emphasis Red State)

“As a part of our United Against Racism effort to achieve health equity for patients and communities across our system, we have prioritized health conditions with the greatest racial disparities in outcomes and are addressing policies that may unwittingly perpetuate structural racism.

Substance use disorder (SUD) is a condition with significant racial and ethnic inequities, especially in the context of pregnancy, when more punitive approaches to substance use disproportionately affect Black individuals.

Studies — including some within our system — have found that Black pregnant people are more likely to be drug tested and to be reported to child welfare systems than white pregnant people.

Regardless of the “data,” this is insane.

The only ones suffering in this case are the children.

Sarah Wakeman, MD, senior medical director for Substance Use Disorder, Mass General Brigham said:

“Our new perinatal testing and reporting policy is the latest step in our efforts to address longstanding inequities in substance use disorder care and to provide compassionate, evidence-based support to families while addressing substance use disorder as a treatable health condition.

This policy reflects an emerging consensus based on sound science, which is being embraced by our peer institutions and was developed in coordination with a wide range of partners.

She added:

“The updated policy reflects our focus on providing safe and equitable care for all patients. The process allowed us to turn our lens inward to understand our own contributions to stigma and inequity and strive to fix them.”

A spokesperson for the hospital told Fox News:

“Mass General Brigham bases its policies on the latest science and established medical practice. To be clear, our policy states that if there is reasonable cause to believe that an infant is suffering or at imminent risk of suffering physical or emotional injury, we will continue to report those cases as we always have.
