A major blow to the heartbreaking story of Justina Pelletier and her family happened Tuesday March 25th. The judge involved in the case made a ruling that gave full custody to the State of Massachusetts and took it away from her parents. Now it is up to the Masachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) to determine when the teenage girl will return to her parents (if ever) and her medical care will now be decided by the government. This is a huge blow for parental rights when it comes to healthcare.
Justina Pelletier’s story is one that has been swept under the rug by most mainstream media outlets. It’s actually shocking that something like this could happen in the United States. Pelletier is like any normal young teenage girl until the state of Massachusetts ripped her apart from her family.
