Justina Still Needs Your Help

Yo'Adrienne..AFCL 2014/03/26 12:40:35
I got word earlier today that attorney Mat Staver, a good friend of Grassfire, is headed to Boston on Monday (March 17) and will have more than 43,000 “Free Justina Now” petitions with him.

The founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel — a nonprofit, litigation organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom and the family — will be at the Suffolk County Courthouse for Justina Pelletier and her parents, as they fight to regain custody of their daughter.

For more than a year, the 15-year-old Connecticut girl has been at the center of a chilling custody dispute that Mat hopes will be resolved soon. “My goal is to get Justina home,” he says.

While Justina is finally back in the care of Tufts University Hospital medical personnel, she’s STILL in Massachusetts state custody by order of the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
Justina: “I Feel Like A Prisoner”

In a recent unsupervised visit, the family’s first in 14 months, Mat says that Justina told her parents and Rev. Pat Mahoney:

“I feel like a prisoner. … Why can’t I go home with my parents?”

Mat says Justina has received “abysmal” medical care; has been denied education; and has gone without religious services or clergy visits (until Rev. Mahoney’s this week) during her state-mandated, court-sanctioned imprisonment. Staver calls the situation “heartbreaking”:

“DCF has abused its authority and hurt this family. DCF had no right to come between Justina and her parents. (Lou and Linda Pelletier) love their daughter and were following expert medical advice in treating (her). Justina was doing well under the parents care. Now she is confined to a wheelchair. … This is a tragedy. Justina needs to be freed from her prison.”
Your “Free Justina Now” petition will be hand-delivered to Mat before Monday’s hearing in a Massachusetts juvenile court. You can take additional action right now and send a strong message to key lawmakers in Boston, Hartford and Washington, D.C.

    This story was also on Dr Phil and all the professionals were outraged. Both of her sisters have the same disease and are on their medications and are just fine. When she was taken to this hospital because her doctor moved there from Tufts the hospital took her off her meds and say it's a mental problem and took her from the parents. The judge needs to be arrested and prosecuted if this girl dies and the state of MA needs to be sued for everything it has. This girl will surely die. Stand up America. Let these freaks know that PARENTS have the say in their childs lives, NOT the State!
