Pelletier Case Shows Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant

by: Rob "EaBo Clipper" Eno

What has happened in Massachusetts over the past week and a half with Justina Pelletier and her family, shows that sunlight is the best disinfectant.  

For over a year, the parents of Justina Pelletier had lost the right to make medical decisions for their child. After Justina was transferred from Tufts Medical Center to Children's Hospital, following her doctor, the staff at Children's made the unilateral decision that her treatment by Tufts doctors constituted "medical abuse".  DCF got involved and all parental rights were stripped from two loving parents.  

To add insult to injury, the family court judge in Massachusetts put a gag order on Justina's parents.  The Boston Globe, and Beau Bearman of the Hartford Fox affiliate reported on the case, but the reporting - especially in Massachusetts - was lost on the public.  

Approximately two weeks ago, Justina's father broke his silence, going against the court order.  Over the past two weeks, the case has garnered national attention, and the attention of a handful of Massachusetts legislators, led by Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica) and Jim Lyons (R-Andover).

continued after the jump.

The combined pressure of the national media and legislators has shown light on the darkness of this case.  As people got to hear Justina's parents, they learned that they are not bad people, and that the state has seemingly made a mistake here.  

Yesterday, a judge ruled that doctors at Tufts Medical Center, could start treating Justina, as the family wished. The judge also ruled that contempt of court charges against the family, and the gag order be rescinded.

This is why it is important to shine light on what is happening, even in the darkest recesses of Massachusetts.  By shining the light, the truth will come out, and the rats will scurry.

We now need to turn our attention to the West Virginian Mom and her son.  After that, a full investigation needs to be made into the relationship between Children's Hospital, DCF, and the courts.
