At the age of 14, Justina Pelletier was taken away from her family and made a ward of the state after being wrongly diagnosed by doctors at Boston Medical Center. Prior to diagnosis, she was a normal teenager who enjoyed ice-skating. Now, she is confined to a wheelchair.

As a result, a new law has been proposed to protect children from medical exploitation. Shari Rendall, Concerned Women for America’s Director of House Legislation, speaks with Mark Trammel, Legal Director for Liberty Center for Law and Policy and the Director of Public Policy for Liberty Council Action, regarding Justina’s Law (H.R. 4989). This bill would prohibit federal funding for medical research when that research presents a greater-than-minimal risk with minimal or no prospect of direct benefit to a child that is a ward of the state.

To learn more about Justina’s Law, listen to the interview. To make sure this never happens to another child. E-mail or call your representatives and urge them to support this bill.
