The tragic irony is that it is worse to accuse than to abuse because many judges, attorneys, and psychologists believe in the notion of ‘parental alienation’ as explaining most abuse allegations. The perverse consequence of this is that evidence of real abuse is discredited even before it is properly investigated.
The next time you tell someone who’s going through abuse to stop contact with the person who is harming them or ask them to report it – know that those things could now be part of a criminal offence.
It’s difficult to forget the harrowing screams of children and mothers torn apart from each other. That the state can do this without just cause is a truth that needs to be widely known. The establishment deserves to feel a shockwave, because this film is a public wake-up call to a brutal reality.
Punished for Protecting
