There are 10 comments on Melania Trump Visits Opioid-Exposed Infants at BMC

  1. It is troubling that the leadership of Boston Medical Center failed to consider how their decision to receive a visit from Melanie Trump contributes to the normalization of the Trump administration. It is a good thing to support the children and families impacted by opioid addiction; it would be a good thing for our local institutional leaders to be mindful of the children and families impacted by the Trump administration’s inhumane treatment of immigrants and refugees — especially those still locked in for-profit internment centers across the country.

    1. Come on Zach! Enough with politics
      She came to look at and make known a good program
      For your information Obama started these refugee centers and “caged “children

      There are too many illegal migrants crossing the border and it is difficult for us to keep up
      You can’t have instant buildings with doctors and nurses available. It takes time which is why they are using fenses
      I had worked at the border and it is a disaster
      Some of these kids are with adults that are not relatives which is why they have to be interviewed before being released fir the kids safety Look up child sex trafficking from Central America

  2. Once again, if someone doesn’t agree with someone else’s politics, they should not be able to come to the school. Good for BU for not folding against those who only want to see people they agree with.

      1. Mary,try not to judge and be grateful for those who as women are able, yes through position to support,and help bring about positive change. Try just for an hour to separate your judgemental thinking and embrace love and peace.

  3. It is unfortunate that the emphasis of this article was clearly not to show an important program that helps children who are victims of the opioid crisis, but instead to point out that there people protesting the visit. Was it necessary to put this in the second paragraph or could it have been the side story instead at the end of an otherwise interesting article? The comments here show what people take away from this – political divide. I would call this an opportunity missed.

  4. A wonderful opportunity to unite once again thrown away by a few political protesters. This visit wasn’t about your views, it was about caring for infants. Get over yourselves. You’re only in the way.
