WHAT DOESN’T KILL ME – documentary feature film
On October 7, 2017 I attended the viewing of the Film, “What Doesn’t Kill Me, produced by Rachel Meyrick. Watch Trailer Here. It was unimaginably eye-opening (and I serve in a field where eye-are-wide-open-regularly), yet this film sharpened my awareness and reshaped my perspective in a VERY unexpected way.
WHO is behind unsafe custody decisions, is SHOCKING.
WHAT is happening in the US Court System, is SHOCKING.
WHEN the Court System stopped protecting children, is SHOCKING.
WHY are children (1 Million) being handed over to the UNSAFE parent, is SHOCKING.
HOW “We” as Americans did NOT see this, is SHOCKING.
CALL TO ACTION! The Need for a Federal Resolution
In the US, 58,000 children a year are court-ordered into partial or full custody with their abusive parent after their safe, protective parent attempts to protect them through the family court system.
When abuse is reported in custody cases, 60-75% of abusers gain custody; one study shows 85% of abusers gain custody in California.
Researchers have documented nearly 600 children [murdered] by a divorcing or separating parent involved in a contested custody case in the last 10 years. [600 Murdered]. Watch the film trailer and YOU decide if you are moved to Support the Federal Resolution.
