A State Government Takes a Child from Her Parents for Medical Reasons. The Parents Want Her Back!

A call to action for Christians from Ted Cruz:

“Legislators Introduce Bill to Return Custody of Justina Pelletier to Her Parents
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | | 4/8/14

Massachusetts state legislators (Republicans, Democrats, or both?—my addition) have filed a bill that would force state officials to return custody of Justina Pelletier to her parents (The parents are not even citizens of Massachusetts! How can the State take their child?—my addition).

Justina Pelletier’s medical condition has dramatically worsened since her wrongful imprisonment and mismanaged medical care by the Massachusetts’ Department of Children and Families. So supporters of her family are urging the legislature to act fast on the bill.

This past Friday, April 4, bill HD1412, written by MassResistance, was filed in the Massachusetts Legislature. It will free Justine Pelletier from state custody immediately and return her to her parents’ custody. It is a simple and unambiguous solution to a situation that has become a national nightmare,’ the pro-life group MassResistance told LifeNews in an email.

‘The goal is to have Justine back in Connecticut with her family for Easter—the end of next week. This could theoretically happen very quickly. But everyone’s help (even outside Massachusetts) is needed,’ it said. ‘Passing a bill like this ought to be a ‘no-brainer.’ But unfortunately in the Massachusetts State House it’s not. As usual, the politicians are full of fear and inertia. There is a disturbing reluctance to get involved, a stark contrast to the people across the country wringing their hands over this. Justina Pelletier’s shocking story has caused enormous outrage around the country and across the political spectrum. This nightmare needs to stop now.’

‘The Legislature has the ultimate authority to act on this. It has the constitutional power to free Justina. And it could get it done very quickly—if it chooses to,’ the group said.

Representative Lenny Mirra (R-West) agreed to file the bill. Mirra said he’d file it ‘by request’—which means that a constituent wants the bill filed but the rep is reluctant to file it as his own.

‘Luckily, the constituent in this case is Lonnie Brennan, an outstanding pro-family activist and friend of MassResistance who runs the VoteCoreValues political website and was determined to see it through, or it might not have made it. Even then, it took two days to get the bill filed,’ the group said.

Legislators have shown support for her family before.

‘Does DCF have a blank check in this case? It is time that we as legislators know how much money is being spent on the Pelletier matter.’ Representative Marc Lombardo commented. ‘The administration has indicated that DCF lacks the resources necessary to carry out their duties. If this is true, why is DCF spending what appears to be endless amounts of money fighting to keep a loving family and their daughter apart (Who do not even live in the State!—my addition)? With over 130 children under DCF care currently missing (Missing! How can they be missing?—my addition), it might be time for DCF to reevaluate their priorities.’

Lou Pelletier, the father of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, has denounced Justina’s abuse under the DCF’s supervision as nothing short of ‘torture’ during her 14 months of imprisonment (AND criminal!—my addition). Justina’s access to healthcare is practically non-existent, he says.

Massachusetts state representatives Jim Lyons (R-Andover) and Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica) requested that the Chairman of the House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight convene an investigation into the amount of taxpayer dollars that have been spent on the Justina Pelletier case since the state first intervened over fourteen months ago.”

I do not know if you have been following this story. I have not posted on it before and it is somewhat different than the articles I post here! One reason I am is because it deals with life and death! And the arrogance of governments that the government knows best! That the government can just take a child from her parents because of a disagree over treatment even though the family is not a resident of the State. But, also because the medical system in Massachusetts is the model/forerunner of Obamacare.

And the question has to be asked, if Obamacare remains the law of the land, will the federal government be taking children from parents because of disagreements over care? My answer: YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! Under Obamacare, our children will not be our own! They will belong to the governmentfor the good of the children, of course!

The Founding Fathers recognized the importance of citizen knowledge and involvement.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

If a nation expects to be ignorantand freein a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Knowledge is, in every country, the surest basis of public happiness.” ~ George Washington

Law and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.” ~ James Wilson

This election is critical! For life, for traditional family, for religious freedom, for liberty!

Restore the Constitution! Take back the nation!

Proverbs 14: 34 (NIV)

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”

Ephesians 5: 11 (NIV)

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

Galatians 6: 7-8 (NIV)

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

It is time for all of us who support the morality established by GOD to rebel against the forces of evil! Expose their evil and return to GODS word and will!

Christians were bold in the First Century church! Are Christians as bold today?

Christians were resolute in the First Century church! Are Christians as resolute today?

Christians stood for the truth in the First Century church! Are Christians standing for the truth today?

If not Christians, who? If not now, when?

This is my two part suggestion to Tea Party groups, social conservatives, Constitutionalists, and anyone else who wants to save our Republic from the approaching destruction.

1) Run as many conservative candidates in as many Republican primaries as possible.

2) Then, run as many independent and/or third party candidates as possible in as many races as possible where we did not win the primary.

Competition is good for the economy and competition is good for the Republican Party!!! Competition keeps Congressmen committed to we the people!!! Primary Republicans who do not support the Constitution as written.
