Petition: Stop Human Trafficking of the Elderly

Many people don't know that there is an entire court system whose job it is to remove elder civil rights. Anyone can apply for guardianship over an "incapacitated" adult, and many guardians have no qualifications. Background checks aren't often performed.

The guardian has complete control over everything in the elder's life, including choice of visitors, medications, living situations. All of the elders assets are now in their control. Wills, health directives, trusts, and power of attorney established before incapacitation are routinely ignored or changed.
