Justina Pelletier, the teenager at the heart of a controversial case of whether or not government can take away children from their parents and make their medical decisions for them, has spoken out now that a judge has allowed her to return home safely with her parents and family.
“This should never happen again to anybody,” the 16-year-old from Connecticut said in an interview with Mike Huckabee on Fox News. “They should never be put through what I’m put through. They were so mean and nasty to me and they were being mean and terrible to my family also and no one should be put through that — no one.”
Justina said didn’t know too much about what was going on.
“They didn’t really tell me anything. They told me that DCF took custody of me and that my family can’t talk to me. … They were saying that they were over-medicalizing, which they were not,” Justina told Huckabee.
