Darcy and Tye Miller had been taking their twin girls, born last December, almost weekly to their pediatrician because of concerns about their weight.

A reader asked me what the age of consent is in Texas. Let me begin by stating there is no section of the Texas Penal Code that defines “age of consent.” Rather, you have to begin in the Sexual Assault Provisions of the TPC. Doesn’t that make many high school students felons? Texas has a “Romeo and Juliet” affirmative defense for minors who are within 3 years of age.

(a) A person commits an offense if the person: (2) intentionally or knowingly: (A) causes the penetration of the anus or sexual organ of a child by any means; (B) causes the penetration of the mouth of a child by the sexual organ of the actor; (C) causes the sexual organ of a child to contact or penetrate the mouth, anus, or sexual organ of another person, including the actor; (D) causes the anus of a child to contact the mouth, anus, or sexual organ of another person, including the actor; or (E) causes the mouth of a child to contact the anus or sexual organ of another person, including the actor.

When their older child's bronchitis was passed to one of the girls, Darcy Miller brought her to Methodist Willowbrook.

At the same time, the agency seems to be perpetually marred by a steady drumbeat of nightmare stories about CPS emanating from the very families CPS is supposed to serve.This text deals with just one of these problems; the CPS practice of removing or threatening to remove children from the nonviolent, non-offending parent in cases of family violence.
