Florida is attempting to destroy my sister's family! [14 May 2004|01:28pm]

My sister and her husband, have had their two infant daughters taken away from them by the state of Florida, and felony neglect charges brought against them. The tragedy is that neither my sister, Sarah, nor my brother in law, Brett, have abused their children. Concerned about their youngest daughter, Lily’s recurrent bouts of pneumonia, they took her to a local hospital. The hospital, finding rib fractures, contacted the Florida Department of Children and Family Services, who immediately took the children away from Sarah and Brett. However, it is the opinion of Marvin Miller, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Affiliated Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Wright State University School of Medicine, Dayton, Ohio, that Lily’s fractures are actually the result of variation of brittle bone disease and were not caused by abuse – and in fact may well have been caused by the hospital as they restrained her in order to X ray her!

The children remain in the custody of Florida despite Dr. Miller's report, and the fact that my parents have filed and completed an Interstate Compact Placement Request, which would place the children in the custodianship of my parents, instead of a state with an absolutely abhorrent record in caring for the children in its charge. It seems that Lily is to be their next victim, because by rejecting Dr. Miller’s diagnosis, the State of Florida is basically denying her the medical care necessary to treat this serious and potentially fatal disease.

My sister and her husband are now facing felony neglect charges for something they did not do.

I ask you to please sign this petition in order to help shed light on this situation – light is, after all, the best disinfectant.

child sex trade
Hi, I'm new here.
I'm from Britain and last night saw a Cutting Edge documentary on the child sex trade in Romania, Milan and other countries. Oh GOD, it disgusts me. Children as young as 10 are forced into sex for money, some families are so desperately poor that they are forced to prosititute their OWN children.

please click on these links to see how you can help:

Here we go, people....


If you agree, stand up and let your voice be heard! They are being irrational about this and now I believe it even more so.

This is in no way meant to sound rude or to make me out to be a bitch. Sorry if you don't like it.

Alrighty people, time to make a new rule (which will be posted in the info page).

This not a debate community. If you don't agree with a petition or boycott that someone else posts about, then ignore it. Move on. I don't want to read a post/comment in which someone is trying to sway my views and beliefs, as I can imagine, a lot of other people wouldn't as well.

Just keep in mind, this goes both ways. If you feel strongly about something, you really don't want someone making a comment to you basically saying, "I think your belief/view is wrong".

I want this to be a positive place to be. I don't want anyone to feel threatened or surpressed.

Positive comments are always welcome.

I propose a CD boycott. They all think they are losing SO MUCH money because of people "sharing" music, I wonder how much money they'd lose if we just quit buying the music...PERIOD!!!!

They forgot that everyday, people listen to the radio for FREE. If we want music, we can tape it off the radio...FOR FREE!!!!
