STOP taking OUR children – ALL children belong under the protective umbrella of loving parents.
This past Valentine’s Day 2015, activists from across the country stood outside various Children’s Hospitals to mark the 2-year Anniversary of 14-year old Justina Pelletier’s medical kidnap. FoxCT spoke with the family for an update on her time back home and her severe medical problems on the holiday Justina says she “will never celebrate again.”
In Boston, while everyone else was hunkering down for an impending coastal blizzard, dedicated activists weathered the bitter cold to stand outside Boston Children’s Hospital, (BCH), with umbrellas. The umbrellas were to represent that “All children belong under the protective umbrella of loving parents“. The location was because it was BCH that medically kidnapped Justina, making her a ward of the state of Massachusetts. SEE Wards of the state: lab rats?
Despite the impending storm, there were still other victims of BCH who came out from the shadows to tell their harrowing stories, and talk about the loss of their children through similar circumstances. While the 16-month battle to “Free Justina” captured national attention, there were very many more children across the country medically kidnapped with little to no notice, except by their devastated families.
Justina was taken by BCH on Valentines day 2013, and put in a locked down psych ward for the ensuing 10 months. As more people became aware of the Pelletier family’s plight, public pressure saw Justina moved out of the psych ward, and into a group facility where protesters began peaceful rallies out front. By April of 2014, outrage of Justina’s captivity was mounting, and rallies to free her started gaining momentum, culminating in the biggest rally of thousands in front of the state house on May 24th. Justina was finally released to her family the following month, some 16 months later, and there is no doubt public outcry and outrage had everything to do with her release back to her parents, and home to Connecticut.
