PA: Sex offender removed from the hospital during the birth of his child

Many of the stories we bring you on a daily basis here at WPXI are clear cut. They’re right or wrong. But this one had us here in the newsroom debating and even questioning ourselves. It’s one of those rare instances where you see both sides.

Ken Moore is a registered sex offender but never thought that would keep him from seeing the birth of his third child. Full Article

I think it was brave for Mr. Moore to go on camera and put it out in public this problem.

A problem which could be rectified with a lawsuit.

I mean how can the hospital defend itself, say for example, if a female Registrant was pregnant and refuse to give her medical care? Or any Registrant that needs it for that matter…

Hospitals need to stay out of politics! This safety issue is BS!
They’ll let in drug dealers, murderers, and terrorists first before a Registrant!

That last sentence should be on plaque for that hospital…

I know this may sound crazy and a bit extreme but I can’t help but wonder, what if a woman were on the registry and in labor how this hospital act? Would they deny her the right to give birth at the hospital? Would they have police supervising her and keeping her from holding and breast feeding the baby postpartum? After all, I do believe that laws should pertain to everyone without any gender differences. This entire case is gross and obscene, this is proof the registry divides families.

So if this guy’s presence – for a few hours as a visitor – is too much of a risk to staff and other patients, what will the hospital do about this guy as a patient – for days and weeks and overnight, probably in a multi-bed room? Shackle him to his bed? Post an armed guard at the foot of his bed? Deny him treatment? Hmmmmm….

Only corrupt, criminal regimes have Registries. These regimes and their Nazi supporters must be destroyed, along with their nanny big government Registries.

What this story tells me is that this hospital doesn’t protect any of its patients or visitors at all. Because if they did, then this Registered Person would be no more of a risk than anyone else (of whom they have zero knowledge).

And just take a look at the pure, through and through, idiocy of this. The guy is Registered for looking at pictures. Yet this hospital welcomes with open arms people who have shot people with guns. Or done whatever, and that list is pretty endless. Pure idiocy and a sign that so many incompetent, dumb people have drank all of big government’s Kool-Aid, lies, and propaganda.

The hospital needs to be sued. If they take any public money at all, it should be stopped. For any of you who still think that people should give to charities or help them in any way, THIS is the type of stuff that you support.

“As soon as I told that guy his eyes got big.”

Yeah, their reaction was akin to disclosing that you had a bomb or a case of Ebola.

Once again, we see it’s all about the illusion of mitigating risk and minimizing liability at the expense of treating SO’s .lower than whale dung.

They treat us like we’re a walking crime scene ffs!

Similar thing happened to me at Long Beach Memorial in California a few years ago. My wife was getting surgery for cancer. They check everybody’s ID before they give you a badge to go to see people in their rooms. The guy at the front counter made a total scene when he looked me up and they denied me access to see my wife after her cancer surgery. Well, i got their legal departments number and said that we would never have used their hospital if that was their policy. I said they should have had some kind of notice before we ever got this far. After threatening to get attorneys involved they backed down and let me enter, but i had to meet with their head of security and they had to notify the head nurse on the floor that my wife was staying on. Total embarrassment for my wife while she’s trying to recover from surgery. Cruel people out there that run these hospitals.

I just someone is tallying all these BS restrictions for a later date for the fight to take down the entire scheme. I want them all rattled off in front of SCOTUS.

People!!! It’s All Good! Illinois Supreme Court struck down the Social Media ban. So…you know…….juss…..find peace in that horse trash.

if it is not illegal, dont go out of your way… its very simple. Its like calling to the cops without an attorney. Stop playing nice people and protect yourselves.
Maybe other crimes should tell the security guards what they did as well. What a dope.

Not telling security would have put him of violation of probation thus sending him back to jail for a month and restarting probation time.

That said, if any damn good attorneys that would like to help pro Bono, it would be greatly appreciated. Money would help a lot itself 😁.

There are many issues here with this whole thing. Not just the discrimination of myself, but the safety, comfort and privacy of my high-risk pregnant wife being violated.

I’m not sure what to say at this moment. If anyone commits a sex related crime in today’s world! The laws are ever changing. Every case is different, I clearly don’t agree with him being kicked out of the hospital, but who downloads and watches child porn as a parent? He is on probation? Parole? I really have no answer. You guys can send angry responses, but my opinion is that this is recent, he is undergoing counseling and the hospital might simply be following protocol. It’s only a thought and I’m sticking with my opinion!

First of all, Other than the fact they violated the fathers RIGHTS, there is NO POLICY and it was against the patients rights and privacy to do what they did. Also we DO NOT know if the person has completed a treatment program or multiple treatments that has cleared them to be safe around their own children. I do not agree with what he DID BUT I also believe people have rights and everyone needs to follow the laws and constitutional rights. I hope he retains an attorney and gets justice. You still have rights even on probation or parole.
