UPDATE 8:52 EST: Media outlets are now reporting that the mother may not be who she says she was.
“The San Francisco Chronicle, citing sources of its own, says the mother’s name is not Kerry Campbell and she does not live in San Francisco, as originally claimed on ABC’s Good Morning America. City child-welfare officials were inundated with irate calls and an investigation was begun.”
ABC News is reporting that the San Francisco Human Services Department took the 8-year-old girl away from her mother, who admitted on TV to injecting her daughter with Botox in the past.
“ABC reports that Britney Campbell was taken out of the home during the weekend. Child Protective Services is investigating the mother, Kerry Campbell. Reportedly, the girl is “doing well,” according to ABC News.”
“Kerry Campbell made the news last week after she appeared on the television shows “Good Morning America” and “Inside Edition.” Campbell, who enters her daughter in beauty pageants, maintains that what she does is safe and that other members of the pageant community treat their children with Botox, too.”
“Not long after she appeared on TV, San Francisco officials began an investigation into the mother. Campbell reportedly lives in San Francisco.”
I feel terrible for this little girl. The ABC reporter just kept reiterating how well the little was doing but how well can a child do after being taken away from the her family.
I completely agree you shouldn’t give your kid Botox, but I just feel bad for this child. It’s just a bad situation all the way around.
What do you think? Should the child have been taken away? If there’s not a law against it do they have the right to take the child away? Is it more harmful to child to take her away than to tell the mother to cease and desist?
