We are corresponding with you in regards to a young lady name Justina Pelletier. This article http://www.courant.com/health/connecticut/hc-pelletier-custody-hearing-0225-20140224,0,1610619.story
will inform you regarding her situation if you are not aware; the headline is simply the latest injustice that has befallen this girl and her family as a result of the despotism in Massachusetts. We have been following this case closely and are utterly OUTRAGED by what is transpiring! When did state sponsored kidnapping become acceptable in this nation?
How can a child from Connecticut, who was diagnosed and being treated by an upstanding medical facility there, be taken into the custody of an institute in Massachusetts (and now placed in their foster care system) simply because they (Boston Children's Hospital and its Doctors) have a differing opinion of diagnosis and care from another renowned physician and institution? How can parents, who have not been found to have done ANYTHING CRIMINAL in regards to their child's care (only an assertion by DHS/CPS for over medicalising their child, because they followed the instructions of a well known doctor) be refused to: a) obtain a second opinion and b) have their daughter taken from them?
Children that are truly being abused are often returned to parents, by court ruling, to live in nightmarish conditions before many end up in bodybags but here we have a loving, concerned family following the guidance of a noted physician regarding a specific disease and treatment regime and the state has KIDNAPPED HER! WE IMPLORE YOU to do WHATEVER is in your power to right this INJUSTICE and STOP this behemoth (BCH has done this before, you can look that up) AND the overreach of the court so as to restore FREEDOM and LIBERTY to this nation’s parents in general and to these parents specifically.
WHATEVER you can do in this specific case DO! Then, we urge, co-sponser the Parnetal Rights Amednment to the Constitution (http://www.parentalrights.org/).
STOP THE TYRANNY that allows what is happening to the Pelletiers and that allowed this http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/amish-girl-hiding-avoid-forced-cancer-treatment-article-1.1533048

What is actually going on in the Halls of Congress that we are at this point in the life of this once GREAT NATION? Where are the elected representatives of the people? Where is the upholding of the Constitution? Will we end up like Scotland where they just passed legislation to assign a social worker to every child under the age of 18 (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/10650090/Scottish-ministers-threatened-with-legal-action-over-state-guardian-plans.html)?
PARENTS have the GOD GIVEN, UNALIENABLE RIGHT to direct the lives, care, academic and faith education, as well as medical treatment of their own biological and adopted children unless they have been found criminally negligent or abusive in a court of law. We are tired of standing on formality when addressing elected officials (thus this very impassioned plea) especially when the vast majority are (in our/the nation's perception) are sitting on their laurels, collecting a paycheck, are guaranteed a lifelong pension and benefits (paid for by the people) while Rome is BURNING! YOU ARE THE PEOPLE'S VOICE, SPEAK UP FOR US NOW!!! The Constitution is supposed to ensure that such arbitrary and oppressive powers as indicated above cannot interfere with the lives of the citizenry. Remember, "Evil prevails when good men do nothing" (Attributed to Edmund Burke). You, Sir, may not be part of the problem but, as a representative of the people you are equally culpable if you are not part of the solution when this tyranny has entered the system and at the highest levels.
Children belong to their families NOT TO THE STATE! WE DEMAND YOU STAND UP TO THIS EVIL INJUSTICE! And then move on to any of the innumerable other unconstitutional and/or illegal matters being enacted and administered by overreaching and even rogue politicians and judges that are affecting, even plaguing and oppressing the citizens of this nation: think Benghazi, IRS Targeting, NSA Spying, Common Core, Religious Rights Violations (Christian business owners being litigated against for not supporting and celebrating homosexual marriage even when it is not legal), The protection and perpetuation of mass murder (abortion), Welfare Abuse, the ACA, a POTUS with a phone and a pen, etc.
We are praying you will receive discernment in regards to this matter and courage in regards to discharging the duties of your office.
Your thoughtful, specific response to this issue is awaited.
