An unfreaking believable nightmare of a story involving an attack on parental rights. A government social worker attempts to seize the 5 children of a women who didn't want her newborn vaccinated.

Jodi asked to know the allegations. The social worker claimed that it would be against the law for her to show Jodi the allegations. “Jodi replied that she would not be comfortable answering the questions if she couldn’t know the allegations. Immediately the social worker proclaimed, ‘Since you’re not going to cooperate, I’ll just go and call the police and we can take custody of the baby.’”...Arizona deputies threatened parents with the forced removal of their five children unless they agreed to let social workers, who did not have a warrant or probable case, search their home....The stunning conclusion came in a lawsuit brought on behalf of John and Tiffany Loudermilk, who sued officials after a confrontation at their Maricopa County, Ariz., home in 2005.
