Help enforce visitation rights in Canada! June 27, 2005 9:57 AM

Justice for Children - Enforcement for Access Orders
Currently in Canada court orders pronounced outlining access and visitation of a non-custodial parent and their child are not enforced. Thousands of children are being denied their right to form a solid relationship with their non-custodial parent (in most cases, their father). In this system Child Support payments are enforced by law and can result in jail time if the non-custodial parent does not comply. However the custodial parent (in most cases, the mother) does not have to allow their children to visit the father as ordered by a Family Court Justice. We are asking that the rights of children and fathers be heard and that the federal government take the necessary steps to enforce a child's right to both parents.

Care2 member petition September 24, 2005 11:30 AM

Below is a petition written by a Care2 member. I'm posting it here for your consideration.

In Utah and Arizona, fundamentalist Mormon sects exist that still practice polygamy. Polygamy is illegal, but what is MUCH more disturbing is that very young girls are married off to much older men. This is child sexual abuse! One man can have 40 or more children this way, and since only one mother is legal, the others are considered "unmarried" and they use the welfare system to pay for their children. I cannot believe that children are being raped and used this way, and the government pays for this to continue. The Arizona and Utah governments are not doing enough to stop this from happening. Please help!

The Petition: Justice for Katelynn November 09, 2005 12:38 PM Indiana's Shame Teardrops for Katelynn: My little one is being abused by a father and his new wife . The state has overlooked and downright ignores the abuse. THis is in the face of overwhelming evidence that was never admitted in a court despite many to have it reviewed. THere were doctors reports, counselors, child advocates and even photographs of her being abused. THe CPS refused to even act on it even when her doctors and other professionals were calling on behalf of her safety. I am know threatened with jail for trying to protect her even in the face of the fact there are and have never been to my knowledge allegations of any kind of abuse against me . She was turned over to her abusive father and his wife . Her brother and I have not been allowed to see her or even speak to her in many months. I have lost my savings, my house ,and jobs trying to pay attorney and court costs trying to protect her and finally I face the real possibility of losing my freedom thus leaving her without anyone to fight this unfair system , she and her brother are trapped in, on there behalf. So, I, no we need help. I still believe there are people out there who stand up for what is right and I hope I will find you . I do this for the love of Katelynn TEARDROPS FOR KATELYNN: ""Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves." ~Winston Churchill "Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if we as a people last for a thousand years, people will still say, This was their finest hour!"

 I am writing this petition on behalf of my children, Libby, Eva, and Caitlin. I have turned to various agancies and they turn a deaf ear. Permanant Custody of my 3 children was given to my 73 year old grandmother due to financial instability on my part. Let me first tell you about me. I am a health care professional with stable employement and stable housing. I began having children when i was 16. I was a ward of the state due to the abuse i suffered growing up. My grandmother was my safe house. Naturally when i got divorced and lost my home , my job, and consequently my drive, I placed my children with my grandmother. My intentions were to get back on my feet. I was in one bad car accident after another, totalling 5 in 2 years. So getting back up was a hard thing to do.My Grandmother called child protective services and told them i abandoned my children. They made me sign a Voluntary protective agreement stating that I would leave my children with my grandmother untill i was financially stable again. I was ok with that. Then they dropped the bomb that i could only have supervised visits on specified days. Thats where everything went wrong. After 5 months involvement with Child Protective services, my grandmother filed for custody. I could not afford an attorney so i represented myself. My grandmother won hands down with her high priced attorney. Shortly after she gained custody, she would not allow me to have unsupervised visits. She soon started to be abuive twords the children. Hitting them with fly swatters for getting a math problem wrong.Pulling their hair,talking very hateful,telling them they are fat, stupid, and other things. She inspects their teeth with a flashlight after they brush, and spanks them with a belt if they arent clean. I have recieved several phone calls fom my children wich were recorded and still no one will listen.My oldest daughter has mentioned killing herself because he is so miserable there, my middle daughter had become unruly and dishonest, and my younger daughter has become overweight with a very bad self esteem. My children also have medical poblems that have not been adressed. Libby's father is a carrier of the CF gene. Libby has problms condusive to Cystic Fibrosis and has been recoimnded that she be screened, yet she has not been screened yet(2 yrs later). Eva is Bi polar and has anger outburst, yet is not seeing a psychologist. Eva was molestd by a family membr, yet grandmother denies it happened and continues to allow her around his man. Eva also has a midline hernia tha could be extremely hazardouse to her health if not corrected, yet has noit seen a doctor yet. Caitlin walked around with a broken hand for a week with no medical attention until I took her to the ER on our visiting day.Her grandmother has her moving concrete blocks around the yard.I was a young mother with financial struggles like other young single mothers. I make mistakes. I never abused, Mistreated, endangered, or done wrong by my children. Their best interest was always my focus. I am asking that you sign this petition to bring my children home. My children want to come home.

Kaylie's Voice June 26, 2006 2:18 AM

Kaylie's Voice

We are the grandparents of Kaylie Nichole Taylor. We are trying to locate our daughter Krystal and granddaughter Kaylie. We have tried to get authorites to help us protect Kaylie.

We have not seen our daughter or granddaughter since June 9, 2006. Krystal's husband is extremely abusive and they are both addicted crack cocaine. They have taken Kaylie and went into hiding when DHS began to investigate them. Oklahoma DHS has a pending case on them.

We have continuely contacted authorities when we have a tip of their whereabouts but still they do not help us before something happens to our grandbaby.

We have been to DHS, Sheriff, Police, News Channel 4, OCCY, MASA and every organization we can think of for help. Please help us help Kaylie.

America's only legalized child abuse? What would you do? June 28, 2006 1:28 PM

What would you do?

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

This is suppose to every little girls life.

What happens when life is not like that?

What if your life is filled with constant abuse by the people who suppose to protect you?

For little Katelynn of Indiana, her life is filled with this from a father, stepmother and father's family; everyone but her the relatives that love her have been deined the ability to see her.

What happens when the police will not stop this?

Than try Child Protection Service, but they will not stop this either.

The next thing to do is go to the court.

What would you do if the Child Protection Services and the court helped the abusers hurt her?

The media might work but they ignore majority of average people.

In this search for help, several politicians ignored or said stop bothering them.

If these people will not help little katelynn than who will?

Will this little girl have to pay the ultimate price for these adults mistakes? What would you do?

hello December 01, 2007 2:08 PM

hello everyone
I am in need of some advice about a mother that refuses to take action concerning the protection of her daughter even though it was brought to her attention that her roomate and the live in babysitter has used physical discipline on her daughter and she seems to think that because the guy that did it is paying her rent and going to clean her house that its ok to still allow this person around her daughter

anonymous  December 01, 2007 9:57 PM

Mary, I am sure you have been given good advice about that situation already but I must reply anyway. This so called baby sitter who pays rent might let the power they were given by this childs mother and start to abuse this child sexually, and I cannot believe this mother gives this man a free ticket to handle her child like that in thr first place, sadly I have ran into and or personnally know too many mothers who shouldnt have ever been Blessed with children in the first place, I am not speaking of the mother in your situation, I am just stating I have had the sad oppotunity to meet and or know mothers who just dont care.  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]

After that we have considered our work done.
It is not! We have a responsibility to continue to care for them. We have a job to see that all victims have a chance to recover from the pain and shame inflicted upon them. Please think about Cierra's Law and consider the situation of families and victims in this situation today.

Justice For Gabby February 23, 2010 8:19 AM

I truly need help getting more signatures on my petition addressed to bring justice to a family suffering from the cruel intentions of a day care worker. There is a civil case opened up trying to help get things moving on a criminal trial for the guilty. Nothing has been done, nothing is moving, lack of interest from the doctors part the night of the incident has supposedly put a halt on the investigation. Some thing needs to be done. We feel this can not go unpunished. If we gather together maybe we can stop this person from ever hurting another innocent person. Please, I truly need help getting the word out, and getting signatures, this petition will be a year old and we have yet to reach 1000 signatures. Please let Gabby's family know, her story will not be silenced.

Stop Secret Family Courts encouraging Forced Adoptions in the UK May 30, 2013 3:40 PM

Hi, I wonder why this group has fallen asleep!? I've started a petition to focus on the UK, knowing full well that 'child snatching' and 'forced adoptions' are going on everywhere. BUT in the UK, people are being 'gagged' with threat of imprisonment. AND people are being imprisoned, after their children have been taken. To deny and lie and to commit crimes to cover up the institutionalised violence committed in the first place. It so happens that it's an American lady whom I've been visiting in prison for over a year now. She hasn't seen her then 4-year old boy since Dec. 2011. I just reread how they were separated from each other then. Can you imagine what he may feel like??? She is supposed to be deported, but she refuses to leave without him. The court, lawyers and prison have all behaved abominably!!! If you feel like signing / liking / sharing / promoting, I'd be grateful: Stop Secret Family Courts encouraging Forced Adoptions in the UK on With many thanks in advance, Sabine
