NPO: California Affiliate Observes Parental Alienation Awareness Day with Jason Patric

Article here. Excerpt:

'As part of its support for National Parental Alienation Day, National Parents Organization is joining Jason Patric, founder of Stand Up for Gus, for a press conference at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 25 on the south lawn of the Los Angeles City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, California.

Michelle Glogovac, Chair of National Parents Organization’s California Executive Committee, will be joined by other members of our California Executive Committee at this event, which is intended to increase awareness of the impact parental alienation has on children and parents.

According to Glogovac, “National Parents Organization of California is working hard at legal and legislative reform to ensure that shared parenting becomes the norm and not the exception. Jason has been present in Gus’ life for three years, parenting him and participating in the role of father, but that came to an abrupt halt when the mother filed for a restraining order and had a judge deny Jason’s parental rights to Gus, as well as Gus’ right to spend time with his father. This was a one-sided decision that not only Jason has to live with, but Gus is living with as well.”'

Keep in mind Jason Patric was a sperm donor to the child via artificial insemination, the mother was an ex-girlfriend, and they agreed to the donorship as she wanted to be a single mom. He had no involvement with her during the pregnancy nor the child for the first year, then upon meeting the child became emotionally attached (him and the bio mother started up their romance again). He is now advocating for sperm donor rights to their children, which is why I believe he is connected to the parental alienation cause.

IMO, this case conflicts with anyone supporting paper abortion for men, as it shows how the man's decision is never permanent and how men will change their minds and clog up the courts. It also supports my belief that the right to parental-child relationship belongs to the child and should not be able to be negotiated away by the parents. And that not wanting anything to do with pregnancy does not necessarily mean a person wont want parenthood, especially once they physically meet the child.

Parent alienation is a terrible thing. I am glad it is getting recognition, but I wanted to point out why I beleive Jason Patric is associated with the cause.
