"Justina's Law." We can understand why Professor Warren wasn't a co-signer but the ACLU and the rest of the Massachusetts delegation!? On June 26, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) introduced House Resolution 4989, nicknamed "Justina's Law." The bipartisan bill co-sponsored by Reps. Karen Bass (D-CA), Tom Marino (R-PA), and Jim McDermott (D-WA) seeks to prohibit federal tax dollars from being used for medical and psychological experimentation on wards of any state. "Justina's Law" is a federal legislative response to the kidnapping, imprisonment, and forced psychological treatments of Connecticut teenager Justina Pelletier. The "behavior modification" she was forced to endure at the hands of Boston Children's Hospital and the state of Massachusetts for more than a year led to a serious decline in her health and wellbeing.
