It has been my attitude up until this point to discuss only those medical aspects of the case which were required by legal proceedings. I have considered this essentially a private matter for the parents. However, there is some additional information that I would now like to bring to light, because some of the things that Dr. Freeman has said reflect certain inaccuracies which undoubtedly are present because he did not have access to all of the information. I would like to bring forth some additional facts, not only about the medical aspects, but also about the manner in which this case was handled. My hope is that I can convince Dr. Freeman that, in fact, the process that was undertaken in this case was a correct one.
