A Greenville, S.C. lab used by the S.C. Department of Social Services was raided by the FBI on January 10th.
FBI and other state policing agencies continue to investigate the lab, but have not been willing to say what the lab is being investigated for.
On January 10th, an FBI spokesman told WYFF News 4 Greenville that agents are “conducting court authorized law enforcement activity.”
On Thursday, January 12th, officials with Premier Medical Laboratory Services released the following statement:
At Premier Medical Laboratory Services, the role of Federal and State agencies is respected. We are cooperating fully with their inquiry and will continue to do so while maintaining current service levels in all areas, while prioritizing our clients and patient care.
Our lab is fully accredited by CAP, CLIA and COLA, and is committed to providing results with quick turnaround times and meeting the highest standards in patient care.
FAMILY COURT ADOPTION HISTORICAL CONTROVERSIES
As can be seen below, S.C. residents believe DSS weaponizes the lab for their own family court related purposes. Questionable tests often come back finding positive results for drugs in the blood work of infants, small and young children. These lab results are then used to terminate parental rights, allowing family court to put the child up for adoption.
FAMILY SAFETY PLAN REQUIRED BY DSS
Young single moms, parents in custody fights, and other families trapped in court disputes are asked to sign the below “Safety Plan”.
Expecting mothers, young children of divorcing parents, etc are then sent to Diversified Medical Healthcare and Premier Medical Laboratory Services for blood work.
Activists and families say lab results come back with suspicious positive drug results that legally terminate their rights to be a parent of their own child.
ACTIVISTS CALL THIS “CASH FOR KIDS”
The Federal Government reimburses [actually pays] DSS for every child put up for adoption.
A typical adopting family, (who often can’t have children of their own) then pay for the child as follows: Private domestic adoption with an agency: $41,532. Private domestic adoption with an attorney: $34,594.
