Petition to Stop the Separation of Parents and Children at the US Border.
We are asking Senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein of California to put forwards legislation to stop the separation of parents and children at the US border. The PTSD that is experienced by these parents and children because of their traumatic separation is immoral, illegal, unethical, equal to torture and not acceptable to reproductive justice and health workers.
Reproductive Justice advocates Maternal Infant health and medical professionals, Educators and Counselors work for the health and bonding of mothers and babies, parents and children, not the deliberate infliction of trauma on them.
We honor and promote the bond between Mothers and Babies, children and Parents.
From Kamala Harris comments with the Department of Homeland Security on what’s happening with parents and children at the US border.
“ [DHS] has separated 700 children from their parents at the border since October of 2017, including more than 100 children who are under the age of four. Harris also pressed Nielsen, DHS Secretary, on a recent policy change by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that allows for more immigrant pregnant women to be held in detention facilities. Harris highlighted multiple federal oversight reports that have documented cases of miscarriages, sexual abuse, as well as deaths of immigrants under federal custody.” www.harris.senate.gov
BEBA, a Center for Family Healing, is one of many sources available, citing the research on the painful symptoms babies, children and adults experience when traumatized by separation including PTSD, aggressive behavior, depression, problems with relationships and much more.
