Local mother arrested during appeal hearing after parental rights terminated
Friday was the last hearing in the Anita Vasquez case.
However, the mother, who is accused of causing illness in her daughter was arrested after acting disruptive in the court room.
After Vasquez interrupted the hearing multiple times, the judge had her arrested and terminated the rest of the appeal.
She was arrested and taken to Victoria County Jail under counts of Hindering Proceeding by Disorderly Conduct.
Her daughter, one year old Aniya Vasquez is currently in the custody of her paternal grandparents, according to Victoria County District Clerk.
Vasquez claimed that her daughter’s poor health was to blame on an accidentally administered HPV vaccine that was meant for her 12-year-old son.
Previous Report (July 23, 2018)
“Bring Aniya home” protesters chanted Monday morning at Deleon Plaza, in Victoria Texas.
Monday, Anita Vasquez along with others protested in front of the Victoria County Courthouse.
A few of the protesters were from out of the state, and came to help Vasquez.
The protesters claim CPS medically kidnaps children for profit.
“I want to bring Aniya home and I demand CPS release her,” Vasquez declares when asked about the goal of the protest.
“I am going to do whatever it takes to bring her child home,” Vasquez states
I called CPS and asked them about this case and a spokesperson said “they did what was in the best interest of the child.”
Back in June 2018 we reported that CPS sued Anita Vasquez for endangering her child’s well being.
Anita Vasquez claims her daughter’s poor health is due to an accidental injection of an HPV vaccine.
While in her mother’s care Aniya Vasquez was admitted to the ICU three times.
The court ruled in CPS’s favor and voted unanimously to remove Anita’s parental rights.
The child was taken away from Vasquez more than a year ago and has not been to the hospital since.
Previous Report (June 23, 2017):
Protesters fill the sidewalks in Downtown Victoria following an intense medical dispute involving a baby girl.
“I was mortified. I was crying hysterically,”local mother, Anita Vasquez said.
A mix of emotions coming from her mother, Anita Vasquez, who says her daughter Aniya Blu was mistakenly given a dose of an HPV vaccine by a local doctor in December 2016.
Medical documents show the report of the incident.
“I was terrified of the doctor and I was also concerned not only for my daughters health. I was concerned for the other patients that go to her clinic,”Vasquez said.
I went track down Dr. Guel at the American Regional Health Center to get a response to the accusation of mistakenly injecting baby Aniya.
I asked managers if Dr. Guel was still working. They responded, “she’s in the building.” According to a document provided by Vasquez, there is an investigation into this incident.
The doctor says she has no comment at this time.
But according to the Texas Medical Examiners website, there is no investigation, no disciplinary action and her license remains active.
“I have been accused of harming my daughter which is very alarming. The doctors are claiming that my daughter has suffered not a single adverse reaction the Gardasil vaccine at four months old,” Vasquez said.
Anita says complications led the doctors to suspect medical child abuse instead of fully investigating potential side affects.
“I think it should be heavily investigated,” protester, Luis Ortiz said.
Anita says she just wants justice for her child.
“At this point all I can do is give it to god and let him take it,” Vasquez said.
Currently baby Aniya is in CPS custody due to other allegations following the medical dispute.
As for Dr. Guel, she is still practicing in Victoria.
