BOSTON, June 17, 2014–Justina Pelletier is the Connecticut teen taken from her family 16 months ago by Massachusetts officials.  Her parents had taken her to Boston Childrens Hospital for a second opinion about her medical condition. The parents disagreed to their diagnosis and treatment. Boston Children’s Hospital filed a “medical child abuse” complaint against Justina’s parents last year when they wanted to take her home to her doctor’s care in Connecticut.

A Boston Judge ordered Massachusetts officials to take legal custody of Justina and continue their treatment and research.   After a firestorm of  negative media coverage and her condition worsening, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) filed a motion with the courts agreeing to free Justina Pelletier from state custody. She has since returned home to her family. friends and doctors in Connecticut.
