Do You Want Your 10 Year Old to Have Sexual & Reproductive Rights?

Do You Want Your 10 Year Old to Have Sexual & Reproductive Rights? | Vision to America

The United Nations is once again trying to underscore Christian and American principles by pushing for worldwide sexual and reproductive rights for youth.

The United Nations Youth Conference taking place this week in New York has set the stage for the Y-PEER statement on sexual rights of youth. Y-PEER, a United Nations Population Fund initiative announced that youth need to have more sexual and reproductive rights including the right to chose (aka – abortion). While the statement does not define or specify an age limit for youth, the standard used by the United Nations in all of its dealings defines them as ages 10-24.

New Charge of Conspiracy against Judge Tammy Bass-LeSure and a former DHS worker

New Jersey School District OKs Random Drug Testing for Middle School Students

New Jersey School District OKs Random Drug Testing for Middle School Students | Conservative Byte

Now here's a sure way to lose your child's trust! School's are to teach your children. Not to drug test them!

A New Jersey school district has signed off on a new policy to allow random drug testing for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students.

The new Belvidere School District program will begin in the fall, with parents choosing whether or not they want their child to participate.

Testing will take place in the nurse’s office, and students who test positive would not be punished or turned over to the police — instead, their parents would be notified and they would be required to attend an early intervention program. Parents would pay for the cost of treatment.

Do Grandparents Have the Rights They Should?

Grandparents Rights and Grandparent Visitation Rights

The experts report on the state of grandparent rights in the U.S. today
by John Bringardner

Richard Kent, a family lawyer at Fairfield, Conn.-based Meyers Breiner & Kent, frequently goes to courtroom battle for grandparents seeking visitation with, or custody of, grandchildren.

"The state of grandparents' rights is terrible," says Kent. Under the current laws, if a couple's adult daughter dies, he says, those grandparents could be denied visitation with their grandchild by the child's father.

Even if they had what most people would consider a classic grandparent-grandchild relationship and, let's say, saw their grandchild every Sunday afternoon. But in the eyes of Connecticut law, says Kent, unless grandparents have functioned as de facto parents — meaning they lived with their grandchildren or took care of them while the parents were at work — they are treated no differently than strangers.

The other Supreme Court decision: It’s a slippery slope from provider to deadbeat - On Parenting - The Washington Post

Many readers weighed in on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on violent video games this week. The controversial ruling that California’s attempt to prohibit renting or selling violent games to minors violated free speech has inspired a spirited debate about parental and industry responsibility.

But the court also issued another ruling this term that will affect millions of families, even if it has received less public attention.
The case is officially called Turner v. Rogers. Unofficially, it was known as the “deadbeat dad” case.
The justices ruled in a 5 to 4 decision (PDF) to uphold the appeal of Michael Turner, a father who had been jailed for a year because he did not — he said could not — pay the nearly $6,000 in child support payments he owed.
The court decided that Turner’s incarceration violated the due process clause because he had not been told that his ability to pay was crucial to the case and the court never determined whether Turner could, in fact, make his child support obligations.

Antipsychotic Drugs Can Harm Kids with Bipolar Disorder


Antipsychotic Drugs Can Harm Kids with Bipolar Disorder

The number of American children diagnosed with bipolar disorder increased 40-fold over the past decade. But now many psychiatrists are backing away from the diagnosis.

Many are worried that thousands of children may have been mistakenly diagnosed with the disorder. Overzealous doctors, quirks in the health insurance system and aggressive marketing by drug companies all contributed to the explosion of bipolar diagnoses.

According to the Star Tribune:

"The profession's about-face could help the next generation of troubled children, but it also raises questions about the harm done to children who shouldn't have received either the diagnosis or the potent drugs used to treat it."

Court workers investigated for lying, misuse of vehicles | wzzm13.com

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Prosecutors say a criminal investigation is underway against juvenile court workers accused of misusing county vehicles and taking part in recreational activities when they were supposed to be working.

New Hampshire should invest in GPS units for DCYF worker's. It would be nice to see them finally get caught visiting friends and God only know's who else when they're supposed to be investigating report's of abuse and neglect! And how about the caseworker's who sit around after railroading a parent at a TPR, who state, "It's too early to go back to work, so I'll just sit around here and pass the time." One would wonder why the State budget is in shambles!

Teenage mother found hanged days after discovering her baby had been adopted

AFRA Front Page News: Teenage mother found hanged days after discovering her baby had been adopted

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 3:24 PM on 1st June 2011

Tragic: Annabelle Lee Morris hanged herself when she found out that her son (face blanked) had been adopted A tragic teenage mother's body was found hanged days after she discovered her baby had been adopted by another family.

Annabelle Lee Morris, 19, could not cope with her son being taken into care and then put up for adoption.

Her father, Thomas James Morris, found her in her bedroom on March 18 last year - nine days after she found out that her son had new adoptive parents, York Coroner's Court was told.

The authorities had intervened as she was struggling to look after him herself.

Speaking after the inquest, her cousin, Lorna Dawber, said: 'She adored her son and had she accepted the help when it was there her future would have been completely different. In time she would have got there.

'That was the one thing in life that was hers, she absolutely worshipped him.'

She said Annabelle would not have put her family through that deliberately.

'She was a good soul and she had a good heart,' she said.

The inquest heard that the child was taken into foster care when he was less than a year old.
Annabelle, from York, was still allowed to see him a few times a week, but when a psychologist raised further serious concerns, steps were taken to have the baby adopted.

Although it was arranged for Annabelle to meet mental health workers in 2009, she did not attend an appointment.

She saw her son, then 15 months old, for the final time in January 2010. At the time of her death she was on a doctor's waiting list to see a counsellor.

Prior to the adoption, her social worker, John Corden, said Annabelle was 'ambivalent' about accepting the support offered to her as this would involve 'putting boundaries around her lifestyle'.

But he said that he and other colleagues had been impressed by the 'high quality of interaction' between mother and child and that she had been 'dignified and honest' in her work with social services.

Mr Corden said 'I had frequent discussions with Annabelle about the way the case was going. She never suggested to me that if adoption were the outcome she would harm herself.

'Annabelle was blessed with a warm and benign personality. She could present herself as a well functioning and capable young lady.

'In the fullness of time, that may have been a considerable asset to her.'

Coroner Donald Coverdale recorded an open verdict and said the cause of her death was asphyxia due to hanging.

Noting that she had strong support from a loving family and from social services, he said: 'Miss Morris was a 19-year-old with a number of problems relating back to childhood.

'In recent times she had gone through the trauma of having her child adopted.

'The final meeting with her child had been in January and that time must have been the most difficult of all.

'It seems to me that she had time to reflect on the unhappy course of events culminating in the adoption. My best guess is that what has happened was an impulsive act, it could be described as a cry for help.'

Militants Kidnap and Hang 8-Year-Old Son of Afghan Policeman

This is SICK!!!

Militants Kidnap and Hang 8-Year-Old Son of Afghan Policeman | Care2 Causes

When Mohammad Daoud, an Afghan police officer, received a phone call demanding that he give his police truck to anonymous militants, he didn’t take it very seriously. After all, members of Afghan security forces like Daoud who have access to official vehicles are often the targets of these kinds of threats. When the callers said that they had kidnapped Daoud’s son, he dismissed them as irritating pranksters. Little did he know that his son was indeed missing, and that in retaliation, the militants would strangle the young boy.

“I became angry,” Daoud said, recounting the conversation with the militants. “I used bad words and told him, ‘cut off his head.’ I didn’t think that they would kill my son,” he added. “They claim that they are religious people and wage jihad against evildoers.”

Fathers Claim NH Courts Biased Against Them - New Hampshire News Story


Fathers Claim NH Courts Biased Against Them - New Hampshire News Story - WMUR New Hampshire

CONCORD, N.H. -- It has been an allegation about the family court system for years -- that fathers don't get the same treatment as mothers when it comes to custody cases. But whether that's true depends on who you ask.

Note: I and so many other's waited close to a month for this segment of WMUR to air. Had the real story with interviews been shown, without the threats of WMUR being sued, everyone would have seen just how bias the NH court's really are.
This special started out as a story about Nick Haas, a father who has always paid child support. A father who hasn't seen his children, since I believe 2009. A father the NH court's have tried to make even more money off of, jailing him earlier this month. There was nothing even mentioned about Nick and his family in this bias report.
The segment aired by WMUR tried to put the blame on father's.
Father's and mother's alike are getting the shaft, while the court's sit by and make a killing off a families pain, playing one parent against the other.
In many cases the court's are bias against father's. In many cases they're also bias against mother's. Even grandparent's. It seem's to me, whichever parent run's to the court first with tales of abuse, wind's up with custody of the children, whether the report is true or false.
I know of one father who abused his wife after she found out he was cheating on her, after finding another woman's undergarment's under her bed. She confronted him and he punched her in the face, with witnesses watching. The mother was arrested and charged with domestic violence. The father has custody of their child and has never been held in contempt for refusing to let the mother see her child.
Another mother, beaten by her admittedly abusive husband, the husband wind's up with custody after filing a false report with DCYF. I know many other mother's alienated by both DCYF and our illustrous NH judicial system, with the father's never even given the right of custody to their children.
I know of three father's whose right's were never terminated in Nashua, after DCYF took their children from the mother's. Two of the mother's were falsely accused by DCYF and the NH court's, which was proven. The father's of all three of these children were never contacted, while two of the Probate Court Judges both lied in their decision's. All three children have been illegally adopted, after fictitious mens right's were terminated. DCYF and the court's were well aware they weren't the children's father's. But DCYF and the court's figured it was no big deal.
So yes, many of the men in NH are getting the shaft in NH and many women are also. Many of the custody order's made by the NH court's are very unfair.
The entire justice system in NH is nothing but a greedy money making machine. Money made off the pain and suffering of families.
This News segment was nothing worth waiting to see. It was a total flop, full of bias. The NH judicial system's failure will one day be out in the open. With or without the help of WMUR.

Another Tale of Our Anti-Parent DCFS Establishment

Another Tale of Our Anti-Parent DCFS Establishment : Stop The ACLU: "It is a sad truth that from coast to coast our departments of children and family service (DCFS) agencies are in disarray. All too often they ill serve the children they are supposed to be helping and they almost always step on the rights of parents without much bothering to give a good reading of the situation before action is taken. The travails of 13-year-old Chloe Faulkner is another such story. Taken from her parents, isolated in a world of faceless bureaucrats, used as a cash cow for state aide, abused, repeatedly raped, and eventually impregnated without her loving parents being given a chance to be heard, this tale is another DCFS/State intervention horror story."

Foster care in Los Angeles: NOW he tells us: The frustrating, mundane causes of DCFS failure

NCCPR Child Welfare Blog: Foster care in Los Angeles: NOW he tells us: The frustrating, mundane causes of DCFS failure

fter years of trying to whip Southern California into a frenzy about some kind of Vast Family Preservation Conspiracy, after a failed effort to scapegoat a waiver from federal funding restrictions and, of course, after doing enormous harm to children by setting off a foster-care panic, Los Angeles Times reporter Garrett Therolf finally noticed: According to a Therolf story published on July 18 about an investigation commissioned by the county Board of Supervisors, the real reasons children “known to the system” sometimes die typically are things like buying the wrong computers so workers can’t get the information they need, or not being able to get the best people to work the toughest jobs.

Study Finds New Guidelines Help Judges Better Serve Abused and Neglected Children... -- RENO, Nev., July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --

More children are able to return home safely or live with extended family
RENO, Nev., July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Children who are removed from their parents for abuse or neglect allegations experience better outcomes when judges follow a set of decision-making guidelines during the initial removal hearing, according to a study released today by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ). Development of a benchcard containing the guidelines grew out of a national NCJFCJ initiative, Courts Catalyzing Change: Achieving Equity and Fairness in Foster Care (CCC). In partnership with Casey Family Programs and the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, NCJFCJ member judges throughout the country are working to reduce the overrepresentation of children of color in the foster care system along with the disparate outcomes they and their families experience.

Hartwig Child Accuses DHS of Unfair Treatment

Hartwig Child Accuses DHS of Unfair Treatment | KEZI

I guess they took lesson's from Nashua, NH DCYF!
RELATIVE PLACEMENT IS NOT AN OPTION, PERIOD! So say's Nashua Supervisor.


EUGENE, Ore. -- An adult son of the Blachly couple convicted of abusing their nine-year-old son is speaking out against the Department of Human Services.

Skylar Hartwig says DHS is treating his family differently than any of their other cases.

After Alona and Rodger Hartwig were arrested and later convicted of child abuse, six of their ten children -- the ones younger than 18 -- were placed in child protective custody.

Skylar says the four older children have been trying to adopt the younger siblings to keep the family together, but DHS won't even let them fill out adoption paperwork.

Infant kidnapped, tortured by Missouri state officials

Infant kidnapped, tortured by Missouri state officials

Kansas City - Mid-April - It began as a routine check-up. New parents Calob and Ashly had taken their 2.5-month old baby, Caden, to a weight specialist because he was slightly underweight. As far as they knew, they were doing a great job with Caden, feeding him everything he needed and performing the duties of responsible parents. They had gone along with their pediatrician's recommendation to see the specialist because they wanted to be certain nothing was wrong.

Homeschool, Anti-vaccine Family Ripped Apart by CPS: Chronology of a Kidnapping

Activist Post: Homeschool, Anti-vaccine Family Ripped Apart by CPS: Chronology of a Kidnapping

PASADENA, CA - The case of Jeffrey and Erica Henderson provides a continuation of the critical examination of Child Protective Services in the United States, as well as the legal framework in which CPS operates.

The Hendersons were investigated at their home following an anonymous tip that Mr. Henderson had slapped his daughter. Jeffrey Henderson was arrested on the scene, and their 6 children subsequently put into foster homes. The Hendersons speculate that the call was placed by their landlord, whom they had reported to the Health Department for having dangerous mold issues in their rental. Regardless of who placed the call, it is instructive to look at the chronology of how the system of "protecting children" has responded to this perceived threat to the welfare of six children ranging in age from 10 months to 8 years, all based on one phone call. This story might prove to be a similar cautionary tale as that of citizen spy programs in tyrannical regimes. The Hendersons' story, as well as the wider story of CPS abuse, reveals American society and its values, while questioning whose interests are really being served by removing children from the custody of their own parents.

Men Should Be Allowed to Veto Abortions

Men Should Be Allowed to Veto Abortions - FoxNews.com

The abortion debate has left one issue largely off the table: The proper rights of men to prevent the abortion of their children.
I believe that in those cases in which a man can make a credible claim that he is the father of a developing child in utero, in which he could be a proper custodian of that child, and in which he is willing to take full custody of that child upon its delivery, that the pregnant woman involved should not have the option to abort and should be civilly liable, and possibly criminally liable, for psychological suffering and wrongful death should she proceed to do so.

The Real Biederman Scandal

Alliance for Human Research Protection - The Real Biederman Scandal

"One million children have been diagnosed with this new and controversial diagnosis – “childhood bipolar.” And one million children are being treated for “childhood bipolar” disorder and more and more at younger and younger ages."
After the AHRP Infomail about the ever so gentle rebuke meted out to Drs. Joseph Biederman, Thomas Spencer and Timothy Wilens by Harvard University-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, we received an essay (posted below) from Jacob Azerrad, PhD, a clinical psychologist.

Dr. Azerrad notes--and we wholeheartedly agree:

" The real scandal perpetrated by Biederman has nothing to do with his consulting fee shenanigans and everything to do with the real life (and death) consequences of the methods now used by modern pediatric psychiatry to tag normal childhood behaviors with diagnoses – like “childhood bipolar” -- and the pediatric medical profession’s complicit acquiescence to such malarkey. It has been nothing short an epic assault on our children by those who prescribe antipsychotic medications as an antidote to normal childhood behavior."

New Hampshire Adoption-The Rights of Unmarried Fathers (Not Adhered to by NH DCYF OR NH Court's)

New Hampshire Adoption

The Rights of Unmarried Fathers

To better understand this issue and to view it across States, download the PDF (626 KB) of this publication.

Legal Definition of 'Father'
Rev. Stat. § 170-B:2

The term 'birth father' means a person or persons other than a legal father who has been named, pursuant to § 170-B:6, as the father of the child, or who is the subject of a pending paternity action, or who has filed an unrevoked notice of intent to claim paternity of the child pursuant to § 170-B:6.
The term 'legal father' means:

The person designated as the father pursuant to § 5-C:24 on that child's birth certificate
The person designated as the father pursuant to a court order resulting from a paternity action
The person designated as the father upon legitimation pursuant to § 457:42
The person who was determined by the court to be married to the birth mother at the time of conception, birth, or any time between conception and birth


Paternity Registry
Rev. Stat. § 170-B:6

A person who claims to be the father and who has registered his claim of paternity with the Office of Child Support Services in what shall be known as the New Hampshire Putative Father Registry or in the putative father registry of the State where the child was born shall be given notice by the court of an adoption and shall have the right to request a hearing to prove paternity.
The registration form filed with the appropriate putative father registry may be filed prior to the birth of the child but shall be filed prior to the birth mother's parental rights being surrendered or involuntarily terminated. Failure to register with the appropriate putative father registry prior to this time shall bar the alleged father from thereafter bringing an action to establish his paternity of the child and shall constitute an abandonment of said child and a waiver of any right to a notice of hearing in any adoption proceeding concerning the child.

Any person entitled to notice from the court shall have 30 days from the date of the court's notice to request a hearing at which he shall have the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that he is the legal or birth father of the child. The failure to request such hearing within 30 days from the date of the court's notice shall result in a forfeiture of all parental rights and any right to notice by the court of any adoption proceedings concerning the child.

Note: And what happen's when the father is NEVER notified? Don't think it doesn't happen, because it definitely DOES happen in New Hampshire! New Hampshire Court's are known for terminating fictitious mens right's to make adoption that much quicker, even when ALL paperwork has been filed by the father on the day of his child's birth. New Hampshire DCYF and the Court's Never bother to even try to contact the REAL father. They just terminate someones right's with the same name or a fake name! Then comes the ILLEGAL adoption! Be warned. NH DCYF and the court's believe they have the Power of God!

Alternate Means to Establish Paternity
Rev. Stat. §§ 168-A:2; 5-C:24

Paternity shall be established upon the filing of:

A petition to the superior court by the mother, putative father, child, or public authority chargeable by law with the support of the child and the granting of such petition by the court
An affidavit of paternity with the clerk of the town where the birth of the child occurred. The affidavit of paternity shall have the legal effect of establishing paternity without requiring further action pursuant to this chapter, unless rescinded pursuant to § 5-C:28.
In the case of a child born in the State of New Hampshire whose paternity has not been established by means of an affidavit of paternity, the mother or the natural father may initiate a request for an acknowledgment of paternity.

When an unwed mother applies to the clerk of a town or city wishing to add the name of a father to her child's birth record the following shall apply:

The affidavit of paternity shall be executed prior to the child's 18th birthday.
The natural father to be named shall personally sign the affidavit.
If signed separately, each signature shall be separately notarized.


Required Information
Rev. Stat. § 5-C:25

Parents shall include the following information when completing an affidavit of paternity:
Information about the child, including:
The child's first, middle, and last names
The child's city or town and State of birth
The child's date of birth
The child's name as it appears on the birth record
The child's Social Security number, if known
Whether the child is living
The child's date and place of death, if applicable
Information about, and signature of, the child's natural father, including:
His full name and date of birth
His State of birth, Social Security number, and address
His signature and date signed, unless the natural father is a minor, in which case his parent or guardian's signature
Information about, and signature of, the child's mother, including:
Her maiden name
Her Social Security number
Her address
If the mother is a minor, her parent or guardian's signature
The date signed
When the mother's husband agrees that he is not the child's natural father, the following information, and signature of, the mother's husband, including:
The husband's name
His Social Security number
His address
His signature and date signed, unless the husband is a minor, in which case his parent or guardian's signature shall be obtained
The notarized signatures of the child's natural father, mother, and, if he is not the child's father, her husband, including the date signed and the date the notary's commission expires
Certification of the hospital or birthing center, including the name and signature of the preparer and date signed, and the name and the address of the hospital or birthing facility


Revocation of Claim to Paternity
Rev. Stat. § 5-C:28

A parent or legal guardian may request to rescind an affidavit of paternity from the clerk of the city or town where the birth occurred within 60 days of the filing of an affidavit of paternity unless an administrative or judicial proceeding related to the child results in an earlier date.
Once the completed rescission of paternity form is filed, the clerk of the town or city shall remove the name of the father from the birth record and insert 'not stated' in the space provided for the father's name or, if the original birth record was filed prior to the completion of an affidavit of paternity, change the child's name on the birth record back to the name stated on the original record before the affidavit of paternity was filed.

After the 60-day rescission period has passed, any challenge to the affidavit shall be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction.

Access to Information
Rev. Stat. § 5-C:28

The clerk of the city or town where the birth occurred shall distribute the rescission of paternity to:

The birth mother
The father named on the affidavit of paternity
The parent or legal guardian of the minor signatory as stated on the affidavit of paternity
The division
The Department of Health and Human Services
The husband, if a three-party affidavit of paternity was completed
The hospital that was the originator of the affidavit of paternity, if applicable

Texas (M.D. v. Gov. Rick Perry) — Children’s Rights

Texas (M.D. v. Perry) — Children’s Rights

Citing longstanding and pervasive issues that have caused thousands of children in Texas foster care to spend their childhoods in poorly supervised institutions and repeatedly move from one far-flung place to another, Children’s Rights has joined the prominent Texas law firms Haynes and Boone LLP, Yetter Coleman, and Canales & Simonson in filing a class action in federal court seeking widespread reform on behalf of approximately 12,000 abused and neglected children in long-term foster care statewide.
The lawsuit (PDF), known as M.D. v. Perry, charges Texas’s Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) with violating the constitutional rights of children who have been in foster care for at least a year by routinely failing to either return them safely to their families or find them safe, appropriate, and permanent new families — and therefore failing to meet its legal obligation to ensure the safety, permanency, and well-being of all children in its custody.

The mass overmedication of foster children with psychiatric drugs

(NaturalNews) For a long list of reasons, the day-to-day life of a child in foster care can be challenging. Foster parents are often stretched thin and overburdened, foster children often wrestle with emotional issues that can go misdiagnosed, unrecognized or misunderstood, and qualified medical care for this vulnerable population is constantly in short supply.

Harvard Psychiatrists Disciplined for Conflicts of Interest

Harvard Psychiatrists Disciplined for Conflicts of Interest « Fight Corrupted Family Courts and CPS

The primary promoters–inventors, one might say– of diagnosing children with “bipolar” disorder, who for over a decade, aggressively promoted the biopolar diagnosis and use of antipsychotics in children, were disciplined by Harvard University and its affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.
An investigation, prompted by Sen. Charles Grassely, was conducted by Harvard University-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. It concluded (earlier this month) that psychiatrist Joseph Biederman and two of his proteges, Thomas Spencer and Timothy Wilens -each of who failed to disclose millions of dollars they had each received from the makers of antipsychotics, the drugs they promoted for the treatment of bipolar in children–had indeed violated the University’s/ and hospital’s conflict of interest reporting standards.

Cosleeping Is Fine For A Child's Development and Behavior

Cosleeping Is Fine For A Child's Development and Behavior | Care2 Causes

It can be a very emotional issue if you choose to debate it: Whether to go to sleep with your children in your bed or whether to make them sleep in their own rooms. You’ll find plenty of parents on both sides of the argument, and plenty of parents on both sides of the sleep situation — and the bed — whether they planned to be in that situation or not (case in point: I coslept with my daughter for over a year until she simply started sleeping through the night in her crib). For those who are against cosleeping, it seemed for years that there was plenty of evidence on their side to back up their claims that it was harmful: Bad for sleep habits, bad for the child’s emotional development, just plain bad.

By Richard Wexler, NCCPR Executive Director
Released April 26, 2011
The chart on page 4 shows the extent to which the outcry over the Barahona case has terrified
Florida DCF workers into tearing apart more families and throwing far more children into foster
care.
It is, of course, a foster/adoptive parent who is accused of killing Nubia Barahona and almost
killing her brother. By placing more children at risk of abuse in foster care itself, and by
overloading the system so more children in real danger are more likely to be missed, the
response to the death of Nubia Barahona is making the next such death more likely.

Edited-NHFAPA.org Shut Down it's New Hampshire Web-site-It's back up!

Last night, while doing more research, I found NHFAPA.org no longer has their web-site. At first I figured they just didn't pay to keep it going. After thinking about it a little longer, I have come to the conclusion that NH DCYF shut it down due to my post last month which can be seen HERE .I surmise they didn't like me alerting everyone as to the illegal adoption's of their stolen children and who the highest bidder's were! As DCYF would say, "Oh well. No big deal." I guess my tenacity is getting to them! Oh well! There's more where that came from!

The NHFAPA.org web-site is back up
I guess they were too busy stealing kids and forget to pay their bill!

Rise Magazine - By and For Parents in the Child Welfare System

United We Stand
A newspaper by Chicago public housing residents helps reverse unpopular policies.

In 2010, the Chicago Housing Authority tried to require residents to turn over their kids’ report cards as a condition of tenancy, saying they were doing it to assess for “potential need for services.” Then in 2011, the Chicago Housing Authority wanted to require that all residents, including thousands of seniors, undergo drug testing as a way to fight crime in public housing. If anyone in the household tested positive, the Housing Authority could begin eviction proceedings. Luckily, residents of public housing in Chicago have a voice through Residents' Journal, a publication written by and for residents of the Chicago Housing Authority as well as low-income residents of the city of Chicago at large. Ultimately, residents were successful in having those policies thrown out.

Improperly used Medicaid Funds - No surprise here.

The Truth Bites "NH"

On May 16, 2011; you were forwarned about the corruption in New Hamsphire's choices of commissioners and the fact that a federal audit showed medicaid funds were improperly used in 2004; the truth does bite ... but the current commissioner Toumpas is glazing it over, so I guess if you live in NH you can just look at it as .... a 7 year interest free loan for what exactly Toumpas probably knows since he was under Stephens when he did it.

How much will DHHS lay on the tax payers when the federal audits catch up with them on the fraud in the division of Children, Youth and Families. Records and NH RSA 169:C show that the Childrens Trust Fund set up for children in the foster care system at age 18; is now a non-profit with diverse interests and money layering.

Funding for state aid to children is being redirected and not one child since 1986 who has left the foster care system has received the stipend due them when they turn 18 to help them get on with their lives...

Just look at it as another interest free loan I guess and oh those state taxes are coming closer and closer ........

Improperly used Medicaid funds to cost NH $35 million

Improperly used Medicaid funds to cost NH $35 million | New Hampshire NEWS06

Federal officials have decided that New Hampshire must repay $35 million in Medicaid funds that were improperly used in 2004, state health officials said yesterday.

Health and Human Services Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas said the state will ask for reconsideration of the decision, but in the meantime he will work with the Legislature and prepare a contingency plan.

If the Fed's dig a little deeper, 35 million in payback for New Hampshire will just be a drop in the bucket!

Note: Isn't it also Medicaid fraud when a hospital keep's a newborn in the hospital for a month and feed's the baby morphine when the baby doesn't have withdrawl symptom's? After the baby has already been evaluated to be discharged with a clean bill of health? Only in NH!

Virginia father loses bid to overturn his daughter’s Utah adoption-New Hampshire is No Better!

Virginia father loses bid to overturn his daughter’s Utah adoption | The Salt Lake Tribune

The Utah Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a Virginia father’s appeal to overturn the adoption of his daughter, a child known as “Baby Emma,” finding he did not meet required deadlines for asserting his parental rights.

Note:All states are the same. New Hampshire terminates fictitious men's right's and when the father's finally find out their children are in state custody, their told they have no standing and are denied paternity testing. Even father's on the children's birth certificates get screwed over. The court's never contact them and illegally adopt out the children!

Prostitution? Drugs? Staffer plugs ears, suggests 'dealers' call it 'babysitting'

Undercover citizen journalist James O'Keefe is at it again, this time capturing on video an Ohio government worker helping a "drug dealer" commit Medicaid fraud.

Posing as Russian drug smugglers who drive an exotic, $800,000 sports car and hire out their underage sister as a prostitute, O'Keefe's operatives reportedly applied for Medicaid assistance for their father with the Franklin County Department of Job and Family Services, where government employee Traci Daniels told the applicants to omit listing their expensive car as an asset and report their line of work as "babysitting."

ACLU-PA Files Lawsuit on Behalf of Parents Whose Newborn Was Seized After Mom’s Poppy-Seed Bagel Caused Positive Drug Test

ACLU-PA Files Lawsuit on Behalf of Parents Whose Newborn Was Seized After Mom’s Poppy-Seed Bagel Caused Positive Drug Test | Andrew Shubin

I guess it's okay with the ACLU when a newborn get's stolen from it's mother for morphine in the baby's system. Morphine given to the mother in labor by IV for nineteen hour's!


October 28, 2010

PITTSBURGH – The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania filed a federal lawsuit today on behalf of a Newcastle couple, Elizabeth Mort and Alex Rodriguez, whose newborn daughter was seized and held for five days by Lawrence County Children and Youth Services (LCCYS) after the mother failed a hospital drug test because she had recently eaten a bagel with poppy seeds.

“No parent should have to go through what this couple did,” said ACLU of Pennsylvania staff attorney Sara Rose, who is representing Mort and Rodriguez. “This case is a tragic illustration of the harm that can result when the government removes a child based only on the accusation of a third party and without any independent investigation.”

After the birth of their first child, a healthy baby girl named Isabella, Mort and Rodriguez returned home from Jameson Hospital on April 29, 2010, expecting to settle in to the challenges and joys of parenthood. Instead, one day later, the new parents were confronted at their home by two LCCYS caseworkers and two police officers armed with a court order to remove the three-day-old infant. This was the first time Mort learned that she had tested positive for drugs while in the hospital. Despite Mort’s insistence that she had never used illegal drugs while pregnant, the case workers took Isabella away and held her for five days.

“When she was gone our family was just at a loss of words,” Mort said. “I couldn’t stop crying. Alex just didn’t even know how to be himself. It felt like our heart was ripped in pieces. The most important person was missing, and we didn’t know when we would see her again.”

According to the lawsuit, Jameson Hospital, where Mort gave birth, uses a much lower threshold for a positive drug screening than federal guidelines, leading to a higher rate of false positives. Jameson has a policy of testing all maternity patients for drugs and requires its staff to notify LCCYS of a positive drug test. Neither practice is required by federal or state law. According to the hospital’s policy, a screen is considered positive for opiates at 300 nanograms/mL or above. Federal work-place guidelines, in contrast, are set at 2000 nanograms/mL to avoid false positives from common foods and medicines.

Throughout her stay in the hospital, Mort was never informed that she had tested positive for drugs, nor was she asked whether she had eaten any foods that could interfere with her test result. Mort and her fiancé, Rodriguez, only learned that poppy seeds could create a false positive in a drug test after Mort’s distraught father began his own investigation into what could have caused his daughter’s positive result. Mort had eaten an “everything” bagel with poppy seeds from Dunkin’ Donuts two hours before checking into the hospital.

“Jameson Hospital’s policy of drug-testing all obstetrical patients for opiates at cut-off levels so low that they are triggered by the mere consumption of a poppy seed bagel, and then reporting these unreliable results to LCCYS is plainly misguided, and contributed in a significant way to the improper removal of Isabella from the safety and comfort of her home,” said Patricia Dodge of Meyer, Unkovic & Scott and one of the attorneys representing Mort and Rodriguez.

The lawsuit claims that Jameson Hospital was responsible for the harm to Mort caused by the removal of her baby because it incorrectly interpreted the results of her drug test and reported a false positive to LCCYS.

The lawsuit also alleges that LCCYS has a policy of violating parents’ due process rights by authorizing its caseworkers to take infants into protective custody based solely on positive drug tests by their mothers without any reasonable suspicion that the infant has been abused or is in danger of abuse. In this case, LCCYS made no attempt to interview the parents or other family members or contact Mort’s obstetrician before seizing Isabella.

During one meeting between LCCYS and Mort, a caseworker admitted the agency had experienced problems with Jameson in the past and that it made a mistake by removing Isabella. The baby was returned to her parents on May 5, 2010. The following day, LCCYS filed a motion with the court saying “[a]fter further investigation, there is no evidence to support illegal drug use by the natural mother, Elizabeth Mort.”

Testing positive for opiates after eating poppy seeds is not an urban myth. Several courts have recognized the risks of a false positive due to common foods and medication. In a 2004 opinion, the Pennsylvania Superior Court stated “We note that eating poppy seeds can produce an opiate positive test result.”

The case is Mort v. Lawrence County Children and Youth Services, et al., and Mort and Rodriguez are represented by Dodge of Meyer, Unkovic & Scott and Rose and Witold Walczak of the ACLU of Pennsylvania.
