Lori Weatherford

3 years ago

My name is Lori Weatherford, and I recently had to move to and I have been living here in Vermont, off and on, since September. I wanted to have a chance to explain to you why I'm here and ask if there's anything you can do about my situation. I'm currently in an experimentation project headed by the University of Vermont. It began when I was a resident of Washington state when my ex-boyfriend opened up a custody case against me in the wrong city; I was living in Bremerton Washington, and the case was opened up in Thurston county. He is the father of my oldest daughter, and he had not shown any interest as a parent in 15 years, despite my many attempts to get him involved in her life. He and his wife used social media and many other different agencies to attack and slander my family. I was unable to get a restraining order. During this time, I received a lot of threats and some death threats towards me and my daughters on social media, and in addition - a lot of my personal information was made public in an attempt to give him a legal advantage in court. He questioned my ability to parent my daughters and also made many other accusations against me. I was also sent emails to my email account about how to build a blog to get my story out and to try to receive legal help. I had to travel an hour-and-a-half to get to court, and no one was willing to show up with me to help me because of the distance. One of the names of the blogs that was emailed to me tricking me into starting my own blog was called "Family Court Femmes Fighting Corruption." Unfortunately, my blog got a lot of negative attention; and with that attention came more serious accusations against me. My oldest daughter had received many scholarships to go to St. Augustine's University in North Carolina, where my grandparents; Allen Easter Ericson Weatherford and Rebecca (Christmas) Weatherford used to teach as professors. My daughter flew out to meet the alumni, and had told everyone she was going. Shortly after graduating from high school, she turned 18 years old (on the 17th of June) and completely dissappeared - I found out a few weeks later she had gone to live with her father and her family did not tell me she was not planning on going to the university. The day after she left is when I was put in medical experimentation project. It is similar to the Tuskegee syphilis experiments because they do not inform participants that they are being tested on. Some of the components of the study are behavioral, mental, and physical; and I am also involved in a sleep and dream study which leaves me sleep-deprived and with no memory of what happens to me at night. The testing is also extremely painful and I am in daily agony and pain, and although I have asked the medical staff to stop the studies, they will not; and they don't listen to me when I tell them how much pain I'm in. I have my own notarized Power of Attorney to make medical health care decisions, but it is consistently ignored. I tried to start a job 4 times while in the studies over the past 2 years, with the promise that they would stop their testing if I did; but the university continued their studies on me while on the job. My friends and family members are threatened with higher medical bills or no medical care at all if they refuse to participate. Over two years my life has been completely destroyed by the program and I now have no where to stay and have been exposed to many dangerous people. These people are given personal details about my life and my family members, putting them in harm's way if I complain about what they do to me and making me unable to escaped without their knowledge of my location. During the course of my stay in Vermont, is when I began to realize that I have no memory of what happens to me when I sleep. I have woken up with bruises, scratch marks and sometimes worse with no memory of how it happened. I am encouraged to date because when I'm with someone I am allowed to sleep more. It has also been told to me that if I allow the medical students to use their testing equipment on my youngest daughter, that they would not test on me. Consequently, I sent my youngest daughter to go live with my aunt to protect her from them. The studies have made it nearly impossible for me to be able to maintain a household; and although they were and are harming me, they would not stop and let me be able to take care of myself. I have been discouraged from working and maintaining a job. Some of the things they say to 'control' me is that my daughters will be harmed (or raped), my family members will be harmed (or raped), that I will be reported to social services, and that I will be harmed in my sleep. They are knowingly robbing me of my ability to work and take care of myself. Medical students constantly make fun of me and my family and friend's physical features and call it a part of the program. Many people would claim to be a family member of mine, a friend, or 'significant other' in order to be able to say that I cannot care for myself, and then make medical decisions for me. It was also insinuated by medical staff while I was staying in Vermont that my oldest daughter's father's family was being consulted to make medical decisions for me. There is no reason why my ex-boyfriend or any of his family members should be consulted concerning my care since my daughter lives with him. One evening, a medical program participant named Trina started a fight with me. I was talking about my Afro, and she said that she wanted "to kick my ass." She ripped out some of the braids in the front of my head. I still have bald spots. A lot of people thought it was funny. I have moved out-of-state many times in an effort to get away from the medical program, and over the past 2 years, I have driven to Oregon, California, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, New York, and have even crossed the border to Canada, and the medical staff have followed me to all of these locations. My car was impounded while I was in New York, and I was told that it didn't matter how much money I had, that they would not let my car out of impound. I found out later that the probable reason why they would not let my car out of tow is because one of the medical programs drastically affects my eyesight. I have been forced to sleep outside because it makes it easier for them to perform their medical studies on me if there are no other people to hold them accountable. I am told what to say, and the things I say are made fun of. I am told what to like, and if I am already have an interest, it's only ok for me to have the interest if the medical students like it as well, and I am told how I should like those interests by the medical program participants Sometimes, they really hurt my feelings, my private parts have been talked about in front of other people, as well as intimate aspects of my private parts - I do not know how they could possibly obtain this intimate knowledge about my body. They also talk about my family member's body parts as well. I have also been told that there are many accusations against me, but they are always implied I am never given any real charges or ways to defend myself. I believe that my life and the safety of some of my family members is in question. Is there any way you can help me? The medical program has completely destroyed my life.
