BOSTON, MA — This week, Boston Children’s Hospital made history by throwing the first child off the roof based on the child’s “felt need to have their birdhood affirmed.” The child is now back in treatment in Boston Children’s Hospital for broken bones, but the hospital is standing by its decision to fling the child off the roof to affirm their right to flight.
“Common questions from parents include: ‘Are you sure we should let little Johnny try to fly?’ or ‘Could we try from a lower jump point before committing to the 2nd story?’ or ‘Where are you taking my child??'” A promotional video posted by Boston Children’s Hospital this week features a mild-mannered doctor describing the “species-affirming care” children can receive. “We always give parents the same answer: always affirm your child’s felt needs, never correct or counsel them. If they want to fly, don’t take their wings!” more here
