Personhood USA: Pelletier family denied weekly visitation with Justina, Free Justina coalition calls news conference

BOSTON, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pelletiers' regularly scheduled visitation with Justina was denied today by the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

DCF informed the Pelletiers that contact with their daughter had been cut off because members of the press had independently appeared at the visitation site. Neither the Pelletiers, nor the Free Justina Coalition invited the media, yet the Pelletiers were prevented from seeing their daughter.

The Pelletiers are normally only allowed to visit Justina for one hour per week. In the past, parental visits have been heavily supervised, with several DCF officials and state troopers present.

In response, family spokespersons from the Free Justina Coalition have announced a press conference at DCF offices where the family was supposed to have met with Justina.

The press conference will be held at 30 Dimock Street Roxbury, MA at 4:00pm today.
