Texas Update

Interesting articles....

As I mentioned previously....see "Shame on Texas" below...
the parental rights nightmare going on in Texas has me pretty upset.

The 31 girls who were alledged to be between 14 and 17 years old has dwindled down to 8. All the others have been cleared as "adults." One 14 year old, is not, nor has been pregnant... she should be off the list soon. See more details here.

Thursday, the Third Appealate Court "ruled DFPS failed to provide, as required by Texas law, "any evidence of danger to the physical health or safety" of children on the ranch who had not reached puberty." and "The Court ruled that the state offered "legally and factually insufficient" grounds for the "extreme" measure of removing all children from the ranch, from babies to teenagers."

Texas is, of course, appealing.
