Justina Now a "Permanent Ward;" Time to Empower Escape
Throughout history, parents have had to escape when their children were threatened. Consider Sarah Hershberger of Ohio, whose parents escaped with her to Mexico late last year to protect her from hospital-ordered chemotherapy that has not been approved for children by the FDA.
Consider the Romeikes, who escaped Germany in 2008 to protect their children from state-run schools that violate the family’s religious beliefs.
Consider Justina Pelletier, imprisoned by the state of Massachusetts for over a year. Yesterday, the judge awarded “permanent custody” to Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF), for no conceivable reason.
I wish we were in a position to mastermind her physical escape from the state’s clutches and send her home.
We cannot impersonate Seal Team Six against DCF, but with your help, we can do much more for many more families: We can protect their children in the first place.
Michael Farris was asked by those involved in the Pelletier case to help draft a bill now in the Massachusetts legislature to stop these abuses. But we need your help to keep the effort going.
That’s why right now through our March 31 fiscal year-end only, we are offering a free print of the painting Rest on the Flight into Egypt with your one-time donation of $50 or more. Even better, the first 400 people to donate $100 or more will receive a print signed by the artist.
Donations must be made online by 11:59 p.m. PDT on March 31, or postmarked by March 31 and received in our office by April 7 to receive this offer.
