It was February 2009 - five weeks before her due date - but his ex's new boyfriend had beaten her so badly that doctors had to deliver the baby. That's how the Iowa Department of Human Services got involved.

Rodgers wanted to take his daughter home with him, but the DHS worker said he would have to go through the agency. She placed the baby with a foster family. It took three months for DHS to confirm Rodgers' paternity. Again, he asked to take his daughter home. Instead, the agency allowed him to visit her. Twice a week. With supervision. Even though Rodgers had no history of child abuse or neglect, DHS would make him jump through more than two years' worth of hoops to prove he was good enough to keep her.

Just listen to her. This minute and a half really says it all. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) succinctly explains that not only should the private sector be displaced by the government, accomplishing it isn't a principled fight. The end justifies any means.

She made herself clear. The government will displace the private sector and the government does not intend to fight fair in attaining that goal. I just watched this video again and it sickens me. This is about far more than medical care. This is about the soul of America.

Reportings of suspected child abuse and neglect have ticked up nearly 20 percent in the wake of last month's brutal killing of 10-year-old Victoria Martens and a campaign by the state.

If the calls about abuse or neglect involve a parent, guardian or someone in the household, it is screened in for investigation by CYFD; if the call involves someone outside the household, such as a coach, teacher or neighbor, then CYFD cross-reports the call to local law enforcement for investigation, Jacobson said.

The Pinnacle Plan is part of a settlement agreement in a class action lawsuit against the Department of Human Services. It was settled in January, and since then, the state has been working on a seven-point plan to protect our children.

Officials in Sweden have announced a $3,000 fine for parents who have been homeschooling their children, and then told them that they don't even get a court hearing on the dispute.

Homeschooling in Sweden has been in the news in recent weeks with the Johansson case. Social workers had police officers forcibly take custody of Dominic Johansson, who was being homeschooled while his parents prepared for a move to India. Most recently, a judge ruled social workers will continue to have custody of the boy.

Houston lawyer, Troy J. Wilson, is currently leading the charges in a lawsuit seeking at least $3 million in actual damages and at least $3 million in exemplary damages by the end of a jury trial against Houston-based foster care agency, America's Angels.

The lawsuit, filed by a Fort Bend county couple, alleges that the couple's daughter was raped and sodomized while in Davis' care. According to the court documents, the under-age victim of the allegedly witnessed a male visitor at Davis' residence engaging in sexual acts with another under-aged child at Davis' residence. The child eventually ran away with another child from the home, but was caught and picked up by the alleged assailant. He took both minors to a hotel in West Houston where he had sex with both of them, according to the lawsuit. He then took them to meet four or five other men who proceeded to rape them, sodomizing them and throwing them out of the vehicle in the late evening, the lawsuit states. The minors were then rescued by members of the community and taken to a medical hospital and psychiatric facility for treatment.

More than $60,000 has been recouped from duplicate or overlapping payments by Nassau's foster care program, county Comptroller George Maragos has announced.

"In one case, a service provider" billed the county for a child simultaneously at two sites, Maragos said in a news release this week. Maragos said he is pleased "that DSS has taken many of our recommended steps. . . . Recouping the funds is also a win for the taxpayers."
