Father of Baby Veronica arrested for not returning her to adoptive parents


Jil Littlejohn of the Urban League of the Upstate will be calling in today The Urban League of the Upstate works to provide economic empowerment, educational opportunities and the guarantee of civil rights for the underserved in America.

The father of a Cherokee child has been arrested for not returning his child to a white couple who adopted the child from her mother who did not tell the father she was pregnant. Cherokee Nation member Dusten Brown asserted his parental rights months after learning of the child’s adoption. A family court judge had ruled in the father’s favor but the South Carolina Supreme Court allowed the adoption to go through and Mr. Brown, who is a member of the US military, posted a bond $10,000 and refuses to give the whereabouts of his daughter.

Speaking of parental rights, 'Lost Boys' actor Jason Patric, who lost a battle for custody of a son conceived using invitro fertilization is urging California lawmakers to change laws and afford greater legal rights to sperm donors. If men are going to sue for rights to IVF babies, what about the rights of egg donors? Many birth mothers of IVF babies are not the actual genetic mothers of IVF offspring, so what if egg donors start suing for their visitation rights? The whole issue of invitro fertilization babies is a legal minefield waiting to go BOOM. The technology has outpaced the law, and now the bill is coming due.

The Egyptian government is reporting that at least 95 people were killed after security forces stormed “protest camps” of supporters of deposed President Mohammed Morsi. The Muslim Brotherhood which supports Morsi and protestors say hundreds have died. The 17-year-old daughter of leading Muslim Brotherhood figure Mohamed el-Beltagy is being reported among the dead. Family members say the teen, Asmaa el-Beltagy was shot in the back and chest.
