Medical Justice Days of Action:

Robert Seth Hayes is one of the longest held political prisoners in the US. He is 66 years old and suffers from multiple chronic and concerning medical problems. As many of you know, we recently waged a medical campaign for him a few months ago regarding rapid and concerning weight loss as well as poorly controlled diabetes. Neither of these concerns has been addressed to date. NYS DOCCS states on its website that denial of adequate medical care is a violation of a person’s eighth amendment constitutional rights, so please help demand that Seth be provided with proper care.

Robert M. Purcell's comment, April 26, 8:48 PM
This is a sad, and rather disheartening practice, but it’s also disgusting. And then you look at it from the traditional side of things as something that was done for hundreds of years. Arranged marriages are nothing new in the world, and in fact if anything they are now something more antiquated than any other descriptive word. To marry a child to another person, whether their prospective spouse is another child, or someone older, is unconscionable in our society today, but it’s not the same elsewhere. Economic concerns for the parents are a factor, along with customs, tradition, and even some old societal rules that run afoul of the law. I still just can’t wrap my head around the idea, nor can I accept the traditions. It IS a human rights violation, and it puts these children in danger as well as any children they may become pregnant with.
Meagan Olsen's comment, April 27, 7:50 PM
This is really sad, a 13-year-old girl wrote a letter begging her teacher to try and stop her child marriage from happening. She wanted to not get married until she was 18 because she wanted to continue to go to school, and if she gets married that could stop her from being able to go to school! The teacher failed to convince her parents to stop the wedding so this poor girl is being forced to get married at age 13. These girls getting married so soon is threatening to their lives and health, it also limits their future prospects, said a spokesman. A lot of these girls also become pregnant with increases the risk of complication in pregnancy or childbirth, these complications are the leading cause of death.
