Not the First Time

This is not the first time, Manson was rushed to the hospital. Reportedly, his health has been declining for several months now. Back in January, Manson was rushed to Mercy Hospital in Bakersfield to get him treated for severe intestinal bleeding and also for a sigmoid lesion. There are varying accounts of his treatment; sources claim that doctors wanted to operate immediately but, apparently, Manson refused.

Charles Manson has been in prison for more than four decades now. He has been behind bars since the late ‘60s because he asked the members of his cult, who he called “the family” to go on a murderous two-day spree. Three of his followers, Leslie Van Houten, Susan Atkins, and Patricia Krenwinkle reportedly murdered seven people, that includes, actress Sharon Tate who was pregnant at that time, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Steven Parent, and Wojciech Frykowski.
