Nate Seglin, the autistic son of Ilya and brother of Robert, was taken from their loving home by CPS, thrown immediately into a psych-ward and pumped full of highly toxic chemicals, against the family's wishes and beliefs.
Nate never had seizures or other medical conditions before being kidnapped by the state, now, his autism is getting worse and his health is declining.
Join us tonight to hear the atrocities committed by the very people sworn to do no harm. Nate has been strapped to chairs, tackled to the ground, beaten and is now being used as a lab-rat for medical experiments.
There is no excuse for the torture the government and the medical community are inflicting on autistic children. Not to mention the entire family and humanity as a whole.
Stand up to this kind of evil. Demand those responsible, be held accountable. This cannot continue any longer.
