In a Former Life…

February 8, 2009 in Ohio

It’s not really public knowledge (until now) that I was a little nuts back in my youth. It seemed a perfectly natural thing to me, when I ran gorilla style holding my section of our heavy logging chain. We hurriedly wound our weighty burden around posts, window bars and anything else that was fastened down, after which we locked in with Kryptonite Bicycle Locks.

The spectacle we made of ourselves – there were about a dozen of us on what we lovingly called the “chain gang.” We were warriors in a fight against death.

I don’t recall the exactly year but I do recall vividly the day 173 people were arrested for closing down the Center for Choice II in Toledo, OH. My fellow warriors and I were elated that no children would die at that clinic that day. It was what might be considered a hollow victory but in my heart, I truly believe that at least one life was spared that day. One mother made the decision to give her child life.

In a Former Life by Annette M. Hall

Someday I dream of meeting such a person. Maybe it was a girl and what if she grew up to be a doctor or professor and taught others to save lives?

I “rescued” many children in my activities with Operation Rescue, lead by Christian activist Randall Terry. He inspired thousands through word and deed to create a movement that had decided to put action to their words. It was a time of great sacrifice and love.

In recent years, I’m ashamed to say saving innocent children from a certain death has not been first and foremost on my mind. I guess my mission in life hasn’t really changed all that much. I simply changed focus. In my heart, I know that little unborn children are sent to be with our Lord and that can’t be a bad thing.

On the other hand there are millions of children being torn from their parents arms. State workers are breaking hearts, killing our beloved children and committing heinous acts of unrelenting cruelty.

I will never understand how these people sleep at night. And how is it that the children who honestly need and deserve help never seem to get it but perfectly happy children from healthy environments end up being stolen from their families – not just their parents – but their entire family? These children are losing their birthright, their inheritance; their entire life will never be the same.

This is cultural suicide. What is our nation going to look like 20 years from now? Every single one of us know someone who has lost his or her children or is fighting like hell to keep them. How long do you think it will take before these actions will have a detrimental effect on society at large?

It is a well-known fact that foster children rarely graduate from high school; they are much more likely to end up in jail than children from mainstream families.

How can our trusted legislators and congressmen sit idly by and do nothing? Many have written to request help, very few families, if any, have ever received any. Families who are targeted generally end up in dire straights as they are slowly bled dry and financial reserves are depleted by greedy attorneys, heavy-handed court orders and in many cases child support. Isn’t that a slap in the face?

Not only do they remove your children, against your will but they make you pay for it as well. Give me a break.

This is wrong and everyone knows it. Just like abortion. I’ve talked to thousands of people about abortion and no matter how convincing of an argument a pro-abortionist makes, deep down in their hearts they know killing is wrong.

Right is right – Wrong is wrong and killing is always wrong, unless it’s in self-defense and what chance do defenseless children have against a society hell bent on destroying their lives.

The system would change really quickly if every foster child sued the state that ordered their removal from his or her family, as soon as they turn 18. Sue for damages, emotional distress, your life has been stolen, without compensation.

I guess I’m still a crusader at heart. No wonder my son wants to be a super hero.

2008 Reflections

January 1, 2009 in California, DHHS, family rights

Little Princess

As I sit here at 11:38 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and I think about the work we’ve done over the year and how much has not been accomplished. We must take solace in and rejoice in the small victories that have been waged and won by parents just like you and I.

Each child returned home to a loving, caring family is a victory — a major victory in the war against families. I’d call it the war on the children but it’s so much more than that — it hits grandparents hard, aunts and uncles, day care providers, friends and neighbors; each child affects so many lives around them…

We can grieve this year over the many children who have been lost to heaven in this all out war on the family. As I contemplated these thoughts, it occurred to me.

Maybe we were going about this all wrong? I’ve had many social workers contact me over the years; they want to speak out against the injustice and the harm being perpetrated on “generation lost.” We have an entire generation of children who have at time or another been separated forever from the lives they should have lived.

I spent the past several weeks watching the Little House on the Prairie series. Wow, people’s lives were so hard and yet so easy back then. Yes, it was just a television show with made up events but the stories in the books were about real people; People who really lived.

We need to create information for social workers or provide a resource page where they can get facts. I’ve worked around enough government agencies over the years to know that they have a tendency to take liberties with the law. The California Department of Education (CDE) was caught red handed putting information up on their website that they (and their attorneys) knew to be erroneous.

To their credit, when details of the posted, mis-information were brought to their attention, it was replaced with factual legal details in a relatively prompt manner. You can’t blame them for bending the laws a little, especially when they know that no one will bother to call them on it.

If we can convince enough social workers to quit or to do their jobs properly, we can tip the scales in our favor. What we need are some industrious college students to conduct a few much needed studies or to at least form a congressional committee to look into the abuse. So far, too little has been done and the work is long overdue.

I’ll bet things would change quickly at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) if someone were to create an online database searchable by county, state and zip code that lists social workers by name and details their offenses. Caseworkers, who stoop to under-handed and illegal methods, need to be called out.

The list could serve as a network database for family rights organizations. Protection workers who fail to document and provide adequate documentation of a proper investigation should be charged with dereliction of duties and dismissed post-haste. Any who attempts to keep a child in state custody unlawfully and in blatant violation against human rights protections must be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law.
