I wonder if you all are aware of what happens when a parent is falsely accused of abuse or neglect? The definition is so vague and subjective that it gives all types of room for arbitrary hearings that encourage the removal of children from their families. I am asking for any of you to reach out to me so you can experience first hand what happens once a child enters the infant to prison pipeline or the foster to sex trafficking to prison pipeline or worst. I am opposing this bill and hoping that the entire definition can be changed to one that embodies the truth instead of and assumption.
