300 Kidnapped American Children In Japanhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnEP_ATH9Ic.

Please watch this week and support these victim parents by sharing this information far and wide. It is our hope that this story will put additional pressure on Japan and result in serious change as to how Japan deals with these child abduction cases.
Many of the parents with children abducted to Japan have been working with members of Congress to raise awareness of the human rights violations taking place in Japan. American children, born of international marriages, suffer tremendously when the Japanese parent, in violation of U.S. and international laws, abducts children to Japan and isolates them from their American parent, family, friends and everything they know. These children often suffer from parental alienation syndrome, a recognized form of child abuse and many go on to develop psychological, emotional and identity problems.

Japan has been dubbed a haven for international child abduction. Members of the House of Representatives are calling on the Government of Japan to address this issue which currently affects the lives of over 300 American children and their loving, left-behind parents.

I believe that Japan should resolve these cases with the United States. Especially since the United States has reached far and beyond in providing help to Japan, even when radiation still looms as a risk.

It is time, these abducted children know both their parents.

The tragedy in Japan is serious:
Quote
The quake and tsunami are believed to have killed more than 24,500 people. Police said Friday that 15,019 were dead and 9,506 were still listed as missing. Radiation leaks at the Fukushima plant have forced 80,000 people living within a 20-kilometre radius of the nuclear facility to leave their homes. http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2011/05/14/japan-nuclear-plant-death.html

The US is supporting their tragedy. Japan needs to step up and bring these children to the point they can have both parents in their lives. Some right now may be better for it, given the situation currently.

The damage done to a child who is kept from their parents, has lifelong impact on a person.

This is so true Cocerned.

The impact...grrrr..., and some judges here in Alberta, continue to do this. Presently I am aware of a case, where the judge has made a mother of five do all the driving to see her daughter. ...  The driving consists of an 8 hour round trip each way, for this nursing mom. It appears the judge "female", who has assigned herself to the case, has a prejudice against this mother. The father has no other children.

So, if it happens right under our noses...it may be hard pressed to make a change with a foreign country.
