Telling the truth
When somebodys credibility is shot, you can't blame others for being suspicious. She has been on and off of drugs for 30+ yrs. Every interview she gives, she says she is currently drug free, only to come back the following yr to say that she lied and that she was high on said interview she said she was clean for. Liars are not credible people! This happened as recently as last yr where she was high on an interview. Her dad is dead and can't defend himself, so it's her word against...well... no ones. I also don't see her a the classic incest victim. A child incest victim has no choice, has no where to go, and has a physical disadvantage. She had none of those disadvantages. The first encounter happened at 19, and she claims the consensual sex went on for 10 yrs?! This would be a good anti-drug infomercial. Stay off drugs, it could lead to sleeping with family members.

Your "government knows better than the parents" culture inevitably leads to out-of-control government and demographic free-fall! The former because trusting the government with oversight of education means it will always have greater control over public opinion than the electoral circus can ever affect government. And the latter because no one in their right mind wants to spend so much time, money, and energy raising little snitches for the state!
Here's an even more extreme example: if blind parents want to have blind children, that is to have them blinded surgically shortly after birth, even that is their right as parents!

Look, I don't like the idea of parents making decisions regarding their children's health and well-being that I don't agree with, but I must set my emotions aside and yield to rational analysis. The emotions you're experiencing are justifiable, but misdirected - nature gave us those emotions to protect our own children, not violently interfere with the decisions made in other families!
When you start making criminal laws that are based on emotion, you open yourself to all sorts of unintended consequences, including the those I've already mentioned - collapsing fertility rates. Today you might have the public opinion on your side, but tomorrow that same justification can be used to initiate aggression against you! Today it's child protective services, tomorrow - sharia law!
