Invasive Medical Exams Lead to Class-Action Suit

The Polinsky Children’s Center in San Diego, CA is under fire after recent accusations that their examinations were too invasive. The county is facing these charges after several families came forward when their children were taken from their homes under suspicion of abuse or other false pretenses. The county says the exams were necessary to protect against diseases, and were seeing about 300 children in their offices every month. Parents claim they were deceived regarding the reason for the exam and did not know the children would have their genitals examined. As many as 50,000 children are included in the class, and investigations are still underway in San Diego County.
