Kelsey's Law

by Stephanie Braski
(Wisconsin, USA)

Great that the state (Oklahoma) passed this law. I do not believe that children should be subjected to evident child abuse. I believe in cases like this, fear of violating the parents' rights goes too far. Kelsey's was a preventable death, had the legal system recognized that parents do not have a right to inflict injuries on their children. Sure, parents have rights, but this went beyond discipline, religious beliefs and the like that are often distorted and equals child abuse. I hope other states take a look at this and model similar changes in the legal system.
