Perhaps many of you are aware of the current high profile court case out in Massachusetts concerning a teenage girl named Justina Pelletier.
Lou and Linda Pelletier took their daughter to Boston Children’s Hospital for treatment of gastrointestinal problems in February of 2013.
After a disagreement about her care, Lou tried to have Justina discharged. The Department of Children and Families took custody and she hasn’t been home since then.
Last month a judge ruled against her parents, and awarded permanent custody to the state.
Her family says that Justina’s health has deteriorated. Here’s a clip of her Dad and sister speaking to Fox News.
We've been following the development of this case for months and urge others to join the many Christian organizations that are praying for Justina and her family.
Truly we are living in astounding times in which the concept of parental rights is being threatened. This case, according to several reputable Christian legal commentators, may be important for all our futures.
