Mothers of Lost Children will march from the U.S. Capitol to the White House in Washington DC to protest children being taken from safe mothers and given to battering and sexually abusive fathers. The family court cover up is similar to Penn State and the Catholic Church cover-ups.
A repost from Patrice Lenowitz from The Nurtured Parent Support Group:
Good morning friends!
In an interview on CNN with Piers Morgan to celebrate International Women’s day, Kelly Rutherford and Cindy McCain talked about the importance of the United Nations Women for Peace March in March to END violence against women and girls worldwide. I am thrilled to report that Kelly Rutherford addressed specifically the harm caused to women and children within America’s family court system.
Having this type of continued publicity will be a life saving game changer for countless women and children in the U.S., and undoubtably, around the world. I am grateful to Kelly for being so brave and determined to protect our most precious resource, our children.

Kelly Rutherford an actress and activist for women and children’s rights will be attending a march at the United Nations today. Ms Rutherford will also be interviewed by Piers Morgan (CNN) tonight to discuss the United Nations Women for peace March to stop violence against women and girls. She and Cindy McCain touched on the state of our family court system–gender–Bias, tune in tonight.
“The United Nations Women for Peace March a celebration of International Women’s Day is extremely important to me, not just because I find violence against woman and girls unacceptable, but I recognize any form of oppression, injustice or violence to be a profound human rights violation that needs our attention and active participation to eradicate. With incredible heart and determination, the UN Women for Peace helps to raise awareness, has implemented programs for positive change”
Through the work of the United Nations Women for Peace, we are called upon to actively challenge the deeply rooted underpinnings of violence against women. And in doing so, we must no longer support the status quo. Our silence on these issues can be deadly.
“As a woman living in the United States, I recognize that I am afforded many freedoms that women around the world are not. I have a right to safety, and I have the luxury of perusing an education and career path of my choice. It was my dream to become an actor. And I am so grateful to have had many opportunities to assist me in accomplishing it. Hands down however, my greatest and most fulfilling role has been that of a mother. Nothing compares to the profound love and sacred bond between a mother and child. But in spite of all the progress and advances we have made towards equality in my country, my children have been ripped from my arms, effectively exiled by a family court judge who forced them to move to France to accommodate their biological father who was deported and is forbidden to re-enter the United States. ”
“My children, two American-born toddlers, ages two and five years old at the time, did nothing wrong and did not deserve the punishment of being separated from their mother, much less banishment from their own county. In spite of all the progress we have made here in the states, this scenario is a clear example of the underpinnings of a patriarchal society.”
Mothers of Lost Children is grateful to Ms. Rutherford’s advocacy on behalf of Women and Children in America. To read more.

Daniel Saunders, Ph.D. on battered mothers losing custody due to attempts to protect their children from the abuser:
There is growing evidence that gender bias and myths about battered women stack the cards against them in child custody disputes. Ironically, their very attempts to protect their children may make it more likely they will lose custody to an abusive ex-partner.
…A further barrier for battered women is that some laws and psychiatric theories often put them in a “Catch-22.” As a result of the “friendly parent” legal standard and the nonscientific “parent alienation syndrome,” actions to protect themselves and their children often work against them.
In many cases, battered women are reasonably reluctant to co-parent out of fear that their ex-partner will harm them or their children. These women may sense that separation increases the risk of homicide, which in reality it does. In addition, physical abuse, harassment, and stalking of women continue at fairly high rates or escalate after separation, affecting as many as 35% of survivors.
Up to a fourth of battered women report that their ex-partner threatened to hurt the children or kidnap them. Women may be reluctant to reveal their address or allow unsupervised visits. Yet such reluctance means they are more likely to be seen as “unfriendly” or “uncooperative,” which counts against them in the custody criteria of most states and the Canadian Divorce Act.
Claims of “parent alienation syndrome” (PAS) similarly place women in a Catch-22. If mothers report child abuse or even raise concerns about danger to their children, some evaluators and courts immediately label them as “alienators.”
In the original formulation of PAS, no investigation of her allegations has to occur and she is labeled as pathological simply for exercising a legal right. The syndrome assumes that programming has occurred if an allegation is made and thus has a circular definition. PAS does not have legal standing, yet the general concept or label may influence decision makers.
