Washington State Supreme Court Creates De Factor Parent Category

As heard on the John Carlson KVI radio talk show this afternoon, our black robes in Washington State legislated, in a decision of 7 - 2, the "defacto parent" category today ruling that a woman who helped raise a child from birth to age 6 while in a relationship with the girl's biological mother will be allowed to seek parental rights as a "de facto parent." Black robe legislation has creating a new class of parent in our left coast state.

"Today we hold that our common law recognizes the status of de facto parents and places them in parity with biological and adoptive parents in our state," the court, led by Justice Bobbe J. Bridge, wrote in the 7-2 decision. "Neither the United States Supreme Court nor this court has ever held that 'family' or 'parents' are terms limited in their definition by a strict biological prerequisite."

Sue Ellen Carvin, who goes by "Mian," sued her former partner, Page Britain, in King County Superior Court in November 2002, alleging that Britain had unfairly cut off access to Britain's biological daughter......

But a year and a half ago, Britain and Carvin split. Britain married the sperm donor and subsequently barred Carvin from seeing (her daughter)....
Page Britian's co-counsel, Erica Krikorian spoke with the media after the ruling came down and said
"Imagine the Pandora's box that opens," said co-counsel Erica Krikorian. Anytime somebody comes along and cohabitates - in a heterosexual or homosexual relationship - all of a sudden, add water and you're creating these rights. You have to be careful who you're letting your kids hang out with."

Dissenting Justice, James Johnson, wrote:
"Regardless of the various sexual orientation claims, the outcome must be that a mother has a fundamental right to make decisions for her child," he wrote. "The majority's ruling fails to provide any protection for Britain's fundamental constitutional right as a fit mother to make decisions concerning the upbringing of her own daughter. Worse, in my view, the majority here looks beyond a detailed and complete statutory scheme adopted by the Washington Legislature and creates by judicial decree a new method for determining parentage."
Remember this is the same court who previously ruled that grandparents do not have visition rights of grandchildren. I believe that the court overstepped it's bound on this case and legislated parenting from the bench. This should have been left to the legislative branch. But, it the left coast state of confusion, Washington State, the legislative branch normally refuses to tackle controversial issues. Folks this is not just a gay lesbian issue, it is an issue of the definition of a parent.

Can any person male or female partner lay claim on a step or child born out of wedlock by the other parent and a third party? What are the stipulations of declaring "defactor parent" status? If the partner is not a fit to raise a child will the natural parent have the right to intervene? There are more questions the answers on this case and the courts will have to rule further.

When Hillary Clinton and her band of globalists promoted, "it takes a village to raise a child," I laughed. Well today in Washington State our black robe judges just brought us one step closer to globalism. Next thing you know, they will rule that Washington State falls under United Nations rules or Shar'ia.

Lets give the legislative power back to the legislature on the definition of marriage and parents rights. There are "de facto parent" rules in some other states. This is the first in our left coast state.
