MSbP - does exist
The link is to a criminal prosecution (that in the absence of any evidence to the contrary I would believe to be safe) for FII or MSbP. FII is a better description of the situation as it is Fabricating an Illness (by proxy).
One of the problems with the debate about MSbP (and also SBS and CML) is that it does exist. The question is how one can identify when it is the case. It is not suffiicent to say
a) If the doctors cannot work out what an illness is caused by ... and
b) If the child is separated from the parents it recovers. (aka a parentectomy).
That this is "proof" of FII.
The evidence we have from recent deaths of children is that the systems we use for determining the truth of these issues fail and to some extent end up as random results.
What I find is that parents who get angry with the system generally lose. That does not mean, however, that the parents are bad parents.
If you ignore the corruption in the system (which is a minority) the majority is affected by wrong process and wrong decisionmaking.
