Alan Dershowitz offers to help #FreeJustina, says law is CLEAR and on the side of the parents
http://therightscoop.com ^ | March 29, 2014 | The Right Scoop

Alan Dershowitz told Huckabee tonight that if everything we know about the #FreeJustina case is true, then this is a horrible abuse of human rights and of civil liberties. He said that Massachusetts law is clearly on the side of the parents, pointing out that if there is a conflict in medical opinion over a child under Massachusetts law, the dispute is settled by the parents, not the hospitals or the state. He even offered to help the parents get custody back of their daughter.

Pretty soon Dersh will join the Tea Party - or at least Free Republic. He’s getting downright CommonSensical these days.

Dershowitz is a lib, but he has been on the right side a few times recently.

I would think Alan Dershowitz has been around long enough to know that the law is what ever the government says it is.

yes! On the you tube video at the end Huckabee said that you can go to freejustina.com and it takes you to the link below.

http://www.justiceforjustina.com/

You can sign a petition, like facebook, use twitter or “Contact the Mass Governer : Gov. Deval Patrick” with link.

FWIW. Thanks Whenifhow.

Alan Dershowitz and Pat Caddel are about the only two Democrats I have any respect for.

Boston Childrens Hospital is out of control. Justina is far from the first child they have taken from parents for a disagreement about care and put into a lockdown psych ward.

Pretty soon countries like Chechnya will have better human rights records than we do.

They have been holding protests outside the hospital though I have heard they moved her recently. Would be so nice if freepers could help out.

I used to be fairly active on facebook with the protest group and sent her a ladybug pillow once - hope she got it. They say she loves ladybugs.

Alan Dershowitz is an intelligent man. A liberal, yes, but I can respect and debate him unlike so many strident progressives who are pushing this country into a tyranny.

We were just talking about this at family dinner table. If I were the parents...I’d be so desperate, I’d be hiring a Seal squad to get my child back.

This has gone on far too long. Hope Dersh will expedite he return to her parents.

Thank God! Dershowitz is a horrible dweeb with terrible table manners… but he does understand the Constitution and the Law!

Bad news is that he is a Hahvud Prof (like Fauxchantos Warren Sen. ( D.MA)
and Boston’s Children’s Hospital is a Hahvud Teaching Facility.
Conflict of Interest?…hmm?

Not only that but Children’s has a grant to do studies in “Somataform” whatever the f that is.. from the Federal Gov’t no less.

These shrinks and psychologists need to be locked up first.

Then common sense can figure this one out!

Spare us all these insufferable Protagonists…errr…psychologist/psych grads!!

Well if Hahvud cannot rescind his degree, they are faced with being embarrassed by one of their alums.

Not Dershowitz’s degree! But the evil Beyotch that set this all in motion!

Follow the money.

By doing this she may think she’s currying favor with Harvard, huh.

But man. This is just mean.

I would think a great tie could be shown evident between the actions of the state of Mass to what would continue to happen under ObamaCare. Where the “government” has the control of what happens to you or your family members concerning health care. Thinking very impressive ads trashing ObamaCare could be made linking what has happened to Justina and her parents to what ObamaCare is going to bring to us!

Dershowitz has always been on the right side re Israel! And didn't he say not long ago that Ted Cruz was one of the most brilliant students he ever taught?

I would love to see him get involved in this on the side of the parents!

This is a criminal act and their lawyer should have already filed a writ of have us corpus. Maybe they do need Dershowitz.
