I don’t know where to begin. I am sure by now many of you have read stories or heard about the 14-year-old young lady in Alabama who was raped and had her baby stolen from her by DHR. There is so much that is being done wrong to her. She is a victim, and now DHR is victimizing her again.

As someone who is getting more involved in the Pro-Life movement and also someone who was conceived from rape, when I read stories like the 14-year-old in Alabama it burns me up inside to read these stories. It is absurd when a rape victim is treated more like the criminal instead of the victim.

When I share my story and stand up for life, I don’t like to mention about how society treats the mothers and children from rape. Well, that is going to change. It is high time that I start to bring awareness as to how we are treated.

A lot has been going through my mind about this story about the 14-year-old Girl in Alabama who have her baby illegally taken from her by CPS. There was no reason for DHR to take her child. She did everything that she was supposed to do. The young mother does have her baby back, but she is still in the custody of CPS, and she is in a group home that has bugs and mold. It is not a healthy situation for her and her baby.

Some recent good news she does now have access to her Lawyer and also has the basic birthing necessities that she needs. She needs to be released with her baby and be back with her grandparents who love her and are willing to help raise her and her baby. Her twin brother was also taken by CPS for no apparent reason. We must get them back to where they belong.

Governor Robert Bentley,

I am writing to you to let you know that I have been reading about the young 14-year-old in your state and was taken unjustly and illegally by Child Protection Services. Let me ask you this what if you had a daughter or granddaughter that you were raising and she was raped and became pregnant because of it and had the baby and the DHR comes in and steals the baby and then takes your daughter or granddaughter would you not fight to get them back?  I am sure you would want them with you.

Please do what is right and let them go back to the grandparents. DHR and CPS should be punishing the rapist not the young mother or her baby.

Thank You,

Sherry Hensley
