A Long Island father was refused the right to see his 3-year-old daughter unless and until he got the COVID-19 vaccine. In this particular case, FCLU says that Karen Rosenthal, the child’s attorney, appointed by none other than “her friend” Judge Cooper is charging the family a whopping $600 an hour. The father was also ordered to hire another friend of Judge Cooper’s, his favorite private firm, Comprehensive Family Services, for “supervised visitation” at a cost of $400 an hour. See the court order here .
Family courts have always operated under public health laws through the Department of Health and Human Services which is an executive branch of the United States that is allowed to bypass constitutional rights “for the greater good of society”. New York Judge Matthew Cooper decided to punish a three year old little girl, her Dad, and their family over a disagreement concerning the covid vaccine.
As if the courts are not already using the unchecked authority of the Department of Health and Human Services to separate tens of millions of children from their parents and extended family members. Did Judge Cooper cross the line by separating the father from the child for not taking the vaccine? The Families Civil Liberties Union says, “This decision is judicial over-reach at its worst. It sets a dangerous precedent that could allow judges to use even more cynical reasons to separate children from the parents, on the grounds of public health”.
Unvaccinated parents are losing their children to the foster care and adoption industry. A Chicago judge ruled that a mother could not see her 11-year-old son because she was not vaccinated, in New York a three-year -old was separated from her family over a covid vaccine disagreement, and an unvaccinated father in New Brunswick, Canada just lost custody of his three children.
