Rebecca Towner started this petition to Grandparents

I am starting this petition for my parents. They have two beautiful granddaughters that they are not allowed to see because their son is angry with them. This was taken to court and my parents were informed by a court that "grandparents do not have rights". I know for a fact that a million of other grandparents are suffering this same pain and theres at least a million of grandchildren who will never know their grandparents. I know from experience a child who is allowed to see their grandparents as they please live a happier and healthier life. My brother and myself were allowed to see our grandparents as we pleased and due to that I was able to grow into a stable adult. In a study conducted in the United Kingdom, researchers found that children who spent more time with their grandparents were at a decreased risk for having emotional and behavioral issues, and were far better off in terms of their emotional intelligence, compared to children who did not have grandparents invovled in their lifes. I also feel if the grandparents have never had any convictions against them there is no reason to hold the children away. In this case like many others the grandparents sit day in and day out praying that they will see their grandchildren again. This petition is in hopes to stop the courts from feeling that grandparents have no rights. But to shine light on an on going heart ache. Please grandparents and fellow parents lets stand together on behalf of innocent children and change the courts mind!
