It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the unbelievable but true story of Justina Pellitier. A child was kidnapped by the government. It’s even harder to wrap your head around this when you realize that this isn’t an isolated incident. Americans can’t take this sitting down if there is any hope for freedom in this country to be saved. Many of us feel inadequate for activism. We’re just regular moms and dads trying to survive. So were the Founders.
There’s always something each of us can do – especially in this age of the information super highway. Here is a list of people you can contact to help Justina, the other children being held, and all of us who value freedom.
Connecticut: The Pellitier family lives in Connecticut. State representatives haven’t lifted a finger to help them. Maybe if enough people ask them why they’ll do what the right thing and represent the people of their state.

Many of you have no doubt heard the horrific story of 15 year old Justina Pelletier who has basically been kidnapped by the State of Massachusetts, DCF, and Boston Children’s Hospital. While many people are following this story, we need every American to be aware of this outrage.
In brief, Justina suffers from mitochondrial disease, a genetic disease that her sister also suffers from. She was successfully being treated and leading a relatively normal life when she got the flu. Connecticut residents, the family was advised to take her to Boston Children’s Hospital. It was there that Justina was taken from her parents by DCF, after Boston Children’s decided that her illness was in reality a mental disorder, while accusing her parents of abuse. Since then Justina has been denied the medications that kept her functioning and pain free. Her physical condition has deteriorated drastically
The following information is structured in such a fashion that will allow you to easily share the facts about this horrible situation. Please notice that the media sources listed are both left and right politically. The fact that this family is being torn apart would be reason enough for every American to be up in arms. There is much more going on that most people don’t realize. Multiple families are going through this same nightmare. The Constitution is being trodden on and we are all at risk of losing our liberty if we do not stand up now.
