There comes a point when silence is no longer an option. If it could happen to us, it could happen to anyone. In a country where most people believe in “family values”, fit and loving Parents are erased from their children’s lives, for huge profit every day. If we really care about our children, we will care about Motherless-ness, as well as Fatherless-ness in America. With the media fixation on “Father’s Rights”, thousands of attorneys “cashing in” on the rampant misuse of Federal Fatherhood Initiative Funding, and a system with no oversight that rewards itself by creating and perpetuating conflict in favor of the wealthier parent, the time has long passed where a child could be guaranteed his or her Mom, no matter how fit, loving or involved in parenting from birth. And certainly, there are many children deprived of fit and loving Fathers. In this country convicted felons have more parental rights than many good Moms and Dads whose only crime was that of being the poorer of the two parents.
