Abuse: Beware of even the friendly pediatrician


A Delaware pediatrician is accused of molesting at least 16 patients, including some who appear to be no more than 6 months old, and police said the doctor used video cameras to record some of the brutal attacks in exam rooms. Dr. Earl B. Bradley, 56, was being held on $2.9 million bond Tuesday, said Sgt. Walter Newton, a Delaware State Police spokesman. Police believe there could be more victims. Bradley, of Lewes, faces 29 charges, including rape. He was charged last week with sexually abusing nine girls.[...]


  1. Unfortunately not so unusual.

    My mother always stayed in the room and additionally insisted that a nurse or assistant be present when we went to the doctor. I do the same for my children.

    When we are very careful, even overly strict with the laws of yichud, these laws protect us.

  2. Rashi, Bereishis 34:7; Bemidbar 22:5

    Gentiles restricted themselves from the arayos.

    Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Ishus 24:12

    In which Gentile women were criticized as “immoral” for being dressed immodestly.

    Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Melachim 9:8

    Married gentile woman must cover her hair, similarly to Jewish custom.

    Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Issurei Biah 21:8

    Egyptians condemned for female homosexual relations.

    Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Issurei Biah 22:3

    Gentile woman is punished with makas mardus for yichud with Jewish man (Rabbinical decree on yichud with gentile women).

    Rashi, Bereishis 19:37
    Gentiles rewarded for tz’nius.

    It really upsets me when I see or hear "frum" Jews jumping on the Evangelical Christian bandwagon and criticizing Muslim women who dress modestly and cover their hair.

    We should be praising them.
