Justina Dying Under Care of Massachusetts

Lou Pelletier, the father of 15-year-old teenager Justina Pelletier is speaking out against a Tuesday ruling in which a judge gave permanent custody to Massachusetts Department of Children and  Families.

A juvenile court judge ruled that the Department of Children and Families has "permanent" custody of Justina, until May 25, according to the Pelletier family's attorney, Matt Staver.

"She needs to be home," Lou told FOX 25's Maria Stephanos. "She is mentally, and more importantly physically, dying under the care of the state of Massachusetts."

On May 25, the judge will then revisit the issue of who is granted custody of Justina in another follow-up court hearing.

Staver said the Pelletier family will now pursue an appeal to send the case to a higher court.

"This is not justice for Justina, or the family," Staver said.

The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families released a statement on the judge's ruling on Tuesday evening.

"DCF's primary goal has always been the health and wellbeing of Justina, and finding a solution that would allow her to return to Connecticut. That has not changed in the face of this ruling," the statement read. "The Department is exploring all options that will allow Justina to return to her home state where she has the support of her friends, family, school and community."

Tragic, people should have a choice of medical care, and Boston's Children does not seem to have improved this child's health.

Fellows at the Brighams wanted to put a Venus Stent in my husband at 3:00 in the morning, I was not quite, the next morning the Cardiologist and Neurologist said good for you they would of permanently harmed him.

The young arrogant neurologist who did this to Justina ran the New York Marathon. I am really surprised the judge would not find it very suspect that two young doctors could pull this off .......

Partners is out of control. This case is about legal liability and not patient care. Two young doctors over stepped there bounds and Partners is protecting the legal liability. Childrens Protective Services it is the same story.

Partners did not call protective services on us but when we wanted to know who was leaking medical information to the public they forbid us to return to the hospital or we would be arrested.

The Federal office of Civil Rights
turned a blind eye. People will fear to enter hospitals if they have no rights once they are in them.

Yes that night with the Venus Stent I had a heated argument with a fellow and demanded the residing come in, I remember the residing say where is the woman who demanded I get out of bed in come in ...... by morning I had doctors telling me thank godness you put these young inexperienced doctors in there place Children's Hospital should of put the young inexperienced Neurologist in his place.

I hope in the end, the hospital is charged with a crime for what they've done.

I agree, Stand up, the hospital should be held accountable, along with the lawyers and the judge involved in this case.

Children's Boston definately violated Federal law with CPS. The peds doctor look at her title at Mass General she is conflicted and Mass General is Partners and so is Children's Boston.

The judge did an incredibly sloppy job as well as the Mass Department of Health etc......

The FBI should be in there ripping the place apart based on Healthcare Fraud. They don't want other doctors to see this child until no traces of the drugs are in her. That can be quite a while ...

I agree with B.Bold. This case is outrageous. I am glad to see so much outrage from the public, but it appears the judge has dug in and he's not going to give. And who suffers? Justina.

And all of you Americans think you live in a free country? Think again!
It's about time someone has done something about this Gestapo bullshet! How does this horrible Dr. Eli Newberger, have such enormous and unchecked power? Heil Hitler? This Juvenile Court Judge Joseph Johnson is even worse, he should be thrown off the bench. This poor girl and her family's rights have been totally destroyed for the last year. Something involving illegal medical testing is going on at that hospital. How this could ever happen in America is a travesty. I hope they sue Massachusetts, this Pravda doctor and the Peoples Republic of Boston Children's Hospital for
100 million dollars. Let them all lose their jobs and their reputations for this unbelievable disdain for justice. This is the most ridiculous news story ever in America.
Justice is coming Justina.
