Justina Pelletier Declared Ward Of State (Special Petition)


 

savejustina-250Last month, Massachusetts juvenile court judge Joseph Johnston granted permanent custody of Justina Pelletier to the state Department of Children and Families (DCF). According to The Boston Globe, the order “means the 15-year-old will probably stay in state custody until her 18th birthday.”

Justina, who suffers from mitochondrial disease, was effectively kidnapped by DCF and Boston Children’s Hospital more than one year ago. Not only has Justina been separated from her family, who have been allowed only a single one-hour visit and 20-minute phone call per week, she’s also received no medical treatment for her disease and no education during her time in state custody.

It’s time for grassroots Americans to rise up and come to the aid of the Pelletier family to end their 14-month nightmare. Take immediate action to stop this heinous, sickening and unconstitutional government overreach by signing the national petition to “Free Justina Now!”

Grassfire has launched a national petition in partnership with Liberty Counsel in support of Justina, calling for her to be re-united with her family and restored to their care. To help, simply complete the form below.

    I don’t get it. There is something missing here. If this is an accurate report on this situation, why isn’t something being done about it?

    • Jaysen McDermith

      because we are slowly being desensitized to children being removed from their homes and law enforcement “accidentally” killing unarmed civilians, and peoples homes being raided without just cause, and illegal searches seizures and detainment’s in order to condition us for a Police State and Martial Law…

    • ted

      Because a judge says so, and then wants to keep the public in the dark with a gag order.
      I don’t know if this judge was elected or appointed, but either way, Taxachussetts voters usually vote for garbage.

      Where are the doctors from Tufts?

      • Dan — the Conservative one!

        I have been hearing more and more about this case and it certainly looks like there is an abuse of power involved. Why do they not consult with the doctors who were treating the poor girl in the first place?

        • PNWShan

          It’s part of a turf battle. The original doctors were at Tufts and she was responding to treatment. There was an emergency and she was taken to BCH, where the admitting physician decided that the first doctors were wrong and that the parents were engaging in Munchausen by Proxy. Despite her doing worse, the BCH doctor refuses to admit he might have been wrong.
          Arrogance, turf, unwillingness to change or to admit a diagnoses is wrong …. all adds up to a terrible situation.

          • Jim Kuhn

            Then perhaps the name address and phone number of that “doctor” needs to be published on the web?

  • Pete_the_Poor

    I hate Massachusetts and I have no desire to ever go there. The name should be changed to Commie-chusetts, the land of no freedoms and the home of tyranny. How this can be legal is beyond me. What do you expect. Look at the folks that teach social workers. They are mostly left leaning and Communists. So this is what it comes down to in America, the loss of family rights. The loss of the family unit. We are no better than the old Soviet Republic. We are no better than Communist China. Massachusetts is a blight on our landscape.

    • unhappygrammy

      New Hampshire is just as bad. In fact, Nashua has a Hospital that’s known for working with DCYF in the stealing of un-abused children. One of the Hospital Social Workers even works for DCYF and is and has been a Foster parent for years. Conflict of interest? You’re damn right it is!

      Amen to that Pete. We should divide the country into two parts – the LIBTARDS on one side, and the Conservatives on the other. It won’t take long, for the LIBTARDS to destroy themselves, as in no time at all, they’d be turning on each other. Problem solved.

      • http://alienrealities.blogspot.com/ merchant

        Why, when we disagree with someone, we resort to name calling? Liberals, moderates, conservatives, socialists, whatever – there are good and bad in each. You can love your country, and think you are advocating for the right path, and be wrong. To convince a liberal he or she is wrong, you don’t do that by calling them names. This is not the United States of Conservatives. Or of Liberals. Or of Moderates. We are a complex nation because we are free: free to believe in different things, free to think, wonder, ponder, test, learn, explore, push limits, make mistakes, recover, reinvent. That means, then, we are not all of one mind, and we should be proud of the fact that our freedom allows that. And we need to be humble and realize that no one is perfect, as the scriptures say. No one is perfect (including ourselves), we should not condemn or judge, we should not name call.

        • cHUCK

          The problem isn’t one of name calling, although there’s plenty of that on both sides. The problem is one of power politics interfering with the rights of a family to be left to live their lives in peace. It involves “the state” conspiring with medical services to take a child away from her parents and use her for unknown purposes – possibly even as an “experiment” of sorts. We don’t really know, because the family has been denied access to their daughter. This problem starts when legal/Constitutional rights & protections are bypassed, denied and/or shrugged off by those with the power to get involved – uninvited – in people’ s private lives.

          The truth of this case is that Justina was diagnosed and was being treated – successfully – by a competent physician for a rare and difficult physical condition. An inexperienced person, and intern I believe, came on the scene, decided Justina’s problem was psychological, not physical, and pre-empted her doctor’s treatment regimen with his own – with the help of the hospital authorities and eventually the courts. FACT: If Justina doesn’t get the medical treatment she needs, she will die.

          The bottom STATE has presumed to deny the right of the FAMILY to choose the appropriate, most effective treatment for Justina and has, effectively, kidnapped the girl. The “authorities” even denied Justina’s family the right to visit her in the – for want of a better word – PRISON in which she has been incarcerated. The chance that she will live to see her 18th birthday is slim.

          Whatever you choose to call the people who commit these atrocities, what’s being done to Justina and her family is wrong. There’s no name calling connected with that word – wrong is wrong. We are, indeed, free (at least in theory) to think and act as we choose, but that freedom ends where it imposes takes away the rights of others. The only other word I can find that describes what is being done to Justina and her family is “CRIMINAL!” It is what it is,and your expressions of “tolerance” have little to do with the injustice that’s taking place.

    • lemondrop1

      the judge should be removed, the DR who first saw her should be fired and lose their medical license. they are the reason the parents lost custody. if the 1st DR. the girl saw, listened to her parents, this would not have happened,. I hope they sue the pants off the Judge, the DR. and the hospital where this DR. works.

      • marlio

        Me too, they have breached their hyppocratic oath and should have their state license taking away from them as well as causing medical harm to the child, and mental duress on both the child and the parents in addition to , most likely, out right lies and conflicts of interest.

      Reinhold, you my friend hit the nail right on the head! And the powers to be know this. Which is why they want to disarm America. The masses have been sleeping. WE THE PEOPLE must awaken from our slumber, or Judgement will come to this nation once again. Only more deliberate, from a GOD that hates sin. This nation(as a whole) must repent[ and that must begin with the individual], or we will be judged as Irael has so many times. The difference is, Israel will always exist, we may not.

      • reinhold

        Thank you Prodigal. However you are in error when you declare your faith to a synagogue of Satan.

        You wrote: ” I am with you on that simplynatural/ I am a conservative Christain and a big supporter of the Jewish community, without the Jewish people, I DO NOT EXIST. I have a string connection to the my Jewish brothers and sisters. Shalom.”

        “Jewish” is not a race or nation whatsoever. But are anti-Christian impostors. They say the are “Israel” when they are not. I shall be happy to show you n detail the folly of embracing the deceptions of the Jews (Pharisees).

        First: Using a concordance clarify your nomenclature. Consider the term,”Jew.” Observe where this bogus term first appears and how many times it appears in Scripture. Compare this with the number of times the terms “Israel” and Israelite” appears. Study the original text to learn the correct term where the term “Jew” has been falsely and deceptively substituted. This will help establish for you the origin of the LIE. Study the true meaning of the term, “Israel.” Then investigate the actual doctrine of “Talmudic Judaism.” I can help you locate resources.

        Our Savior King, Yeshua admonishes all, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees.” and ” No man can serve two masters for he will love one and hate the other.”

        “Call no man “father” for you have One Father who is in heaven. Call no man master for you have one master and you are all brothers. You have One Teacher, the Christ.” The term “Jew” is found nowhere in the Scripture until the bogus story of Queen Esther. Nowhere can any shown to be other than blaspheme and sacrilege to state that Yehsua the Christ is a Jew! Neither is in even rational to state that Christian Faith, Law and Doctrine are founded in Judaism!

        In America there exists a current insurrection by renegade pubic servants. An enemy has done this! That Enemy is a synagogue of Satan. The self proclaimed “Jews” say they are Israel but they are not Israel. If the Jews were truly Israel they would not hesitate to call them selves “Israel.” And they would declare Yshua, the Christ. Instead the Jews hate Yeshua and all things “Christian” because these are the Righteous Fruit of Jacob- Israel and the “Jews” claim to be and they are of Esau-Edom who has promised to slay Jacob-Israel.

          Reinhold, go take a long walk on a cold, brisk day – or stick your head in a toilet or whatever to “get a grip”! If you really consider yourself a follower of Jesus, you need to read His words sometime, and try to practice love, compassion, and a deep love of all God’s people,especially the chosen Jews, for whom He came first!

          • reinhold

            Dear Julie, I surmise that you are a faithful Christian. However, you appear as an hypocrite. You condemn me with harsh words for writing the Word. In the explanation that I provided one need only to look to Scripture to overcome the error that you declare here. You state, that I must love, “God’s people,especially the chosen Jews, for whom He came first!” This reflects the very same error that I describe.

            The Children of the Promise cannot be the same as those which our One Teacher, Yeshua the Christ declared:

            John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

            Abraham, Isaac, Jacob – Israel are not “Jews.” The term “Jew” connotes only doctrine. THese are not race or nation whatsoever. The term” Jew” is false lt entered into the translations. You may confirm this by diligent search of Scripture. Yeshua warned each of us, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisee.” You must heed our Saviors warning and command. Never to teach the false doctrine of the synagogues of satan.

            We have One Teacher and He is not another than Yeshua the Christ. You are teaching the false doctrine of Judaism and now act to obstruct my Christian witness. You are in error because you have been deceived. Hear now the Talmudic doctrine of the Jews that you teach:

            “To communicate anything to a Goy about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the Goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly.” – The Talmud: Libbre David 37

            I shall be pleased to provide more Scriptual truth for you to consider.
            “No man can serve two masters for he will love one and hate the other.” Our Savior King Yeshua declares of himself, “No man comes to the Father but by me.”

    These are obviously not abusive parents. They love and care for their daughter. For the state to remove her from them and treat them like criminals is outrageous. We need a Parental Rights Amendment to ensure this does not continue to happen when the “State” decides they know better than a loving family what is in the “best interest” of their child.

    • http://alienrealities.blogspot.com/ merchant

      Yeah, it should not be so easy to take one’s child away. I think that should also apply to our homes as well (though more importantly to our children). China makes it very difficult to condemn or take someone’s home just because it suits a local government – it is much more difficult to take someone’s home there than it is here in the U.S. That is wrong, wrong, wrong. Both of our political parties are to blame.

Since my account shows the fee has been posted for the faxes, but the email makes me wonder if I was charged but nothing happened.

Is there any word as to why was this child was taken from Tufts and brought to Boston Children’s Hospital, and why would they not release her to her parents or to another hospital? she’s been there for a year and from what I can tell, with little positive results.
    I can’t see that restricting a sick child who must be afraid and lonely from parents that love her can be good for the child. What kind of ghouls make a decision like that?
    While I originally thought BCH was an excellent care facility and donated substantially as well as giving blood, I will desist and donate elsewhere.
    I don’t live in MA and dam glad for it. The state is in a state of liberal lassitude, convoluted logic, and corruption. You have only to look at the twisted ideology of the people they elect to know the vast majority of the populace is no better.

      Louisiana is much more corrupt – it leads the nation in corrupt government – and it isn’t a liberal government here. Quite the contrary. Wolves in sheep’s clothing exist in all political parties, in all political movements. Why? Because of power. The worshiping of Mammon. They pit us, the average Americans, against each other (divide and conquer), forgetting that the scriptures tell us that a house divided cannot stand. But they are too short sighted: they want power, and power now, and they will trick us, manipulate us, sugar coat lie to us, exaggerate, whip up fear and hate in us (easier to control people who are caught up in fear and hate), all so they can gain power, so they can worship Mammon. Show me a state without corruption. I would love to know where it is so I can move to it.

      NH, Justina’s GI doctor had moved his practice to Children’s, and when Justina experienced complications of her condition, which includes difficulty in passing bowel movements, when she contracted the flu, Dr. Korson of Tufts, the Chief of Metabology who had been successfully treating Justina for over a year, wanted her to go for a planned admission to BCH to meet with this particular doctor who had treated her previously. Instead, research subject hungry Children’s sent in a young neurologist and psyhcologist to essentially hijack the case.

    Google Justina Pelletier vs Boston Children’s Hospital and you will find more information on this tragedy. Justina is not the only child to be in a hostage situation in this hospital.
    The doctors claim it’s a mental condition rather than mitochondria which is pysical one caused by a cell condition. The disease was known in China and Austrailia and has now spread to the US starting out with cold like symptoms and quickly developing into Polio like symptoms, causing paralysis. BCH took her off her meds prescribed at Tufts. This is what her parents objected to. Apparently getting a second opinion is no longer the prerogative of the patient or the parents. Forget Constitutional rights under this dictators regime.
    If this child is having mental distress it’s not unusual for a person that is physically ill especially over a lengthy period of time, and more so when the doctors exacerbate the distress. No doubt to prove their point. I can’t help but wonder is Justina being used as medical guinea pig?
    Another question is, Is this being seen because of the influx in Illegal Chinese immigants that this inept government continues to encourage and allow?
    ABORT OBAMACARE or we are going to see more of this unconstitutional injustice and erosion of our rights.

    This should be a WARNING: check out hospital ratings near you should you ever have to go there before a medical crisis happens. You can Google the information.

    The families of our Nation who have been abused by the State have been pushing to expose the corruption and needless destruction of our families for quite some time now. Nobody wants to listen or do anything to change the way families are being abused by an overzealous, rogue, corrupt agency and corrupt Family Court system. The illegalities and deceitful practices used against innocent families is truly horrendous and must be stopped. Our children and grandchildren are being stolen daily due to false reports and frivolous, idiotic reasons. Proof of innocence is denied in Family Court. Perjury and Hearsay have become the new norm. Convicted criminals have more rights than parents. A child stolen from a parent is worse than death. CPS AND the Family Courts need to be abolished before there are no REAL families left. It does NOT take a village to raise a child. It takes the childs biological family period!

    Colorado is ten times worse. DHS needs to mind their own Fing business. Unless they have actual proof and I mean a video tape showing someone beating or abusing a child in any way they need to shut the F up, mind their own business, and stay in their offices.

    This is one if the most unbelievable, most heartbreaking stories I’ve ever heard. I would lose my mind, as a parent. I would try an steal my child out of the Hospital. This is horrible. Oh my gawd! Is this Russia were living in? I can’t believe this! What else can we as citizens do? I wouldn’t recommend taking your child to this Hospital, for starters. But there must be something we can do besides signing a petition?
    Praying for this child and her family. I cannot believe this. I am in shock.

    The gag order violated the parents First Amendment right to freedom of speech. Not only that, it might have infringed on their right to an appeal, by making it impossible to raise funds or meet with additional lawyers etc. They were investigated for child abuse, and while it is not clear to me, personally, if charges were ever filed, it is clear that they have never been tried, a violation of their 6th Amendment right to a speedy trial. It’s quite apparent that Massachusetts has no use for the Bill of Rights. And when did civil forfeiture laws allow them to take your children on grounds of suspicion?

  • noelle20102

    I am so sickened that local state and of course the fed govt think that they have a right to take away kids from their parents!
    JUSTINA MUST BE GIVEN BACK TO HER PARENTS AND A MASSIVE LAWSUIT FILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The “judge” in this case MUST BE REMOVED AND PERMANENTLY BARRED FROM EVER BEING A JUDGE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This overreaching stuff has got to stop!!! I JUST had a family member regain custody of their kids after a battle of several months when they rushed their child to the local hospital because he bumped his head and went unconscious. The dr refused to believe them about what happened and did not run further tests but contacted their local dcfs who took all 3 of their children away. They managed to have a grandmothermove across the country to take care of them so they could stay in their home but that left the parents for all intents and purposes homeless for several months. It turned out after further investigation that the baby has a syndrome and they regained all of their kids. I dont know what they intend to do but if it were me id be sueing the crap out of all of them. I know a few months ago my 2 year old choked on a cracker and i was hitting her on the back trying to dislodge it as she stopped breathing (scariest moments of my life but shes ok). At the hospital they were taking pictures of her back because bruises were showing….uh ya…i was hitting her as much as i could trying to save her life! I know they have to take precautions but it makes it scary to trust going to a hospital should you ever need it!

    I have read most of these comments, and ALL are right on target. So my question is,’ What are ‘We the People’ going to do about it?” There has been other nations in the last few years making thier voices heard and we set doing nothing except talk to one another. Put your words to action! Force your legislators to do something or get them out of office. Start witt “term limits[ Judges and all.] If that doesn’t work , go to the next level. WE must take our country back. It is being taken away from us. She is worth fighting for.

  • mark tutt

    After following this case it becomes very apparent that as just we have gotten sentencing guidelines for sexual predators in the individual states we need a movement to get laws passed in our own states that protects families from this ever happening to. Wouldn’t have to be very complicated just a law that said that the parents would have final responsibility for the care and education of their children unless they had been proven to be unfit. By a jury of their peers not DCF or a DR. Mangla minded hospital that might use children’s as experimental subjects Such as Boston Memorial-

    We need hundred of thousands of people. This effects every state. Help! Get 10-20 people to sign! #FreeJustina

  • Delores Moyer

    What reason has the court given to make this decision and make it permanently? I guess I would have to know that before I decide as were the parents abusive???

  • petroskhan

    Seems like a real sound reason to exercise one’s 2nd Amendment rights.

  • Bryan Smith

    Is Massachusetts still a State? It certainly doesn’t behave like one. Was this the first state Obama took over?

  • Dan — the Conservative one!

    Okay, this is BS! The court needs to tell the public EXACTLY what evidence they have as to why the child should be separated from the parents. Are we a police state now! If there is something heinous going on in that family, then tell us. If not, then leave this poor family alone!

  • Ben K.

    I swear I should move out of New England. I have no idea what has happened to New England in the past 20 years. It’s time to renew congress. I’m not leaving without a fight though. We are the voters, we run the state. This is an outrage.

  • BS Detector

    So what does the “petition” actually say? I don’t see it anywhere. I’m pretty sure I’d like to sign it, though.

  • Rihard C.

    It’s a real shame that a place where our forefathers fought and died to free this country from oppression only to have something like this happen. I feel that the present administration in general and Mass. in particular are working very hard to deprive us of all of our freedom. They’re trying to repeal the 2nd Amendment. What comes next? The first? Perhaps the 4th or perhaps the entire Bill of rights. They MUST be stopped in their tracks, but how can we do it? That gutless bunch of wonders, the Republicans, damn well aren’t doing anything but talk the talk. It’s about time they started walking the walk or get out of the way for a third party.

  • Justin LeBlanc

    DCF DOES NOT EXIST IN MASSACHUSSETTS ITS CALLED DSS DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES AND THERE HAS TO BE A VERY GOOD REASON WHY A JUDGE WOULD BE INVOVLED… I THINK THIS IS A HOAX REALLY… OTHERWISE WE WOULD ALREADY HAVE THE INFO THAT IS MISSING FROM THE STORY LIKE WHY WOULD A CHILD PROTECTION SERVICE FROM A DIFFERENT STATE BE INVOLVED? DCF DOES NOT EXIST IN MASSACHUSSETTS!!!

  • cmdorsey

    Boston Childrens is nothing but a govt subsidized glorified laboratory. Their main concern is how they will be able to keep getting govt (OUR MONEY) grant money for ‘to improve patients’ recoveries’ – Ya right. I don’t understand why Justina can’t go in front of a judge and demand that she wants to be with her family. She’s not mentally incapable of doing that. I guess I just don’t know ALL the details, but that is just a thought. I sent a donation a few days ago, otherwise I would send $$ right now. God bless Justina and the family

  • graywolf1938

    I did not sign the petition, because I would like to know why the parents felt it necessary to kidnap her from a hospital. Obviously she was there for some reason. Did the DCF put her there?
    What didn’t her parents do or not do that the hospital or DCF didn’t approve of? I agree that what they have done by isolating her and keeping her away from her parents even visiting her is totally wrong. If they, indeed, have also not been giving her needed medical treatment, they should be shot.

    Satan rules this world and the only way we can overthrow that is by living by the Lord’s plan and stand up to be counted, “Who is on the Lord’s side?” Signing petitions to bring this travesty to the attention of elected officials is the way of Americans. Petitions shout at the Lawmakers and a lot of petitions shout very very loud. Granted, there will always be those who turn a deaf ear and pretend there is nothing wrong. These are the ones I will vote against in the next election. Sign the petition to free this 15 year old, Justina, before she dies at the hands of DCF and the hospital. If she does die, then I will sign petitions to prosecute those involved for murder. Yes, Satan can and will be overthrown and those who support him will be his for eternity.

  • Andy Z

    Someone needs to organize a Cliven Bundy ranch style confrontation to remove this child from her unlawful detainment

  • Neil Firkin

    When you have people at large that send homo’s like B. Franks to D.C. represent you…it’s not surprising to me to hear of a case such as Justina’s…someone should put a fence around that state with a sign that says “Please don’t feed the animals”…that place is a zoo.

  • GMA213

    Justina Pelletier is a prisoner of the regime. Without medical care, she will die. Keep her name before the public.

  • Carl Payne

    I would love to sign the petition if I could find it. I don’t sign anything I haven’t read, regardless of how well intentioned the sponsors may be. Please post the petition, or if I am too dumb to find it, tell me where it is located. I am appalled that any person, agency, or governmental body could perpetrate such an injustice on anyone. The fact that our Republic started its fight for independence in that area makes this a blot on the American way of life.

  • Sue Baldwin- O’Dea

    I posted the above article about Justine but a photo of Myle Cyrus was attached with it. Has Grassfire been hacked?

  • Deborah L

    Justina was taken so she could be used as a research subject for somatoform disorder by BCH is what I think happened, she fit the bill to a T. She is not the first either since previous to her was Elizabeth Wray. They were also both placed in BADER 5 a psych ward, except Justina was kept there for 9 mo. When a hospital can take a child and completely change the medical treatment plan from another group, the family have gag orders stated and no recourse to a second opinion even, then that is criminal. This is happening across the nation also, seized children are money making machines for agencies, each child put into foster care and then adopted out make them money; the more handicaps a child has the more money is paid out. How did this come about America..
