"A woman who left her wife and went on the run with their daughter amid a custody battle has claimed that the authorities have been "blinded" by gay rights.

Lauren Etchells, a teacher originally from north east England, is accused of child abduction and police have ordered an international hunt.

Now the 31-year-old has come forward to describe why she left her marriage to Tasha Brown and justifying the reasons for leaving their home in Canada with their two-year-old daughter Kaydance and her baby son.

Criticising what she described as the "political correctness" surrounding her case involving the dispute over Kaydance, Ms Etchells said: "This whole case has been about gay rights and not about what is good for my child."

The system needs to... see that Kaydance is better off with me instead of getting blinded and caught up in political correctness

She claimed that she wanted Kaydance to have a life with Marco van der Merwe, a former boyfriend from school whom she said had agreed to be a sperm donor for her second child.

Giving no clue about her location, Ms Etchells explained her position to leave home in an 18,000-word email to The Times.

"At some point the system needs to look at the straight facts and see that Kaydance is better off with me instead of getting blinded and caught up in political correctness and bureaucracy," she wrote.

"Breaking up her family, separating her from her mother and brother and the man she knows as her father is going to do far more psychological damage to her than growing up not knowing ... Ms Brown."

Ms Etchells, who met 43-year-old Ms Brown on a dating site while studying at the University of Victoria in 2007, said that she wanted Kaydance to "grow up with her biological family" who "always put her best interests first". She also accused the authorities of hunting her "like an animal".

Ms Etchells and Ms Brown lived in the United Arab Emirates, where Ms Etchells worked at a private school, before they tied the knot in Canada in 2012.

It was Ms Etchells who gave birth to Kaydance after getting pregnant by artificial insemination, but the pair were both listed as the girl's mother on her birth certificate.

Ms Brown, also a teacher, was said to have been granted access to their daughter by a court after they relationship ended.

In her email, Ms Etchells said that Mr Van der Merwe had agreed to become a donor for her second child and she became pregnant again after parting from Ms Brown.

She described how she and the children accompanied 31-year-old Mr Van der Merwe as far as Britain four weeks after their son was born before he returned to the Middle East, with the promise of joining him a fortnight later.

Ms Brown told The Times: "I am Kaydance's mom too, who loves and misses her dearly. I am worried about her safety and concerned for her health. A life on the run is the worst possible way to raise our daughter."

I don't see what "gay rights" or "political correctness" has to do with any of this. Is she suggesting that if she weren't gay she would have been allowed to just run off with the kid?

There are laws and courts and due process.

My guess is that now that shes hetero again she's run off to some bible thumper state and is just trying to lay the groundwork for a Christian group to help support and protect her.

Etchells is the child's mother. Brown is not.

And if I were in charge of the proverbial Christian group you speak of I'd refuse the request for help.

Go ahead, say it...

Gather up some guts and say it.

You mean like Rifqa Barry did...correctly and justified

Regressive progressives didn't like how the Christians saved Rifqa Barry and now they like to pretend they don't remember who Rifqa Barry was and how she slipped out of the grasp of their wannabe totalitarian Sharia/Progressive PC control. The Christians won. The Regressive Progressives supporting the Islamists lost. Now without saying why, they like whine in worry it might happen again.

:P In fact...Image

Now as to what gay rights has to do with this case.

Good question. Lauren Etchells is the mother. Marco van der Merwe is the father. If you take away gay rights and political correctness the only claim Tasha Brown has is as a one time friend of the family.

I would equate it more to:

Roommate who helped raise the child for 2 years. Kind of like a nanny wanting to take the child with her when she is fired.

Bullshit. These were legally married, the man is just a sperm donor. The woman left behind has equal rights as a parent. Nothing to do with pc, just, you know, the law.

Exactly. The ex was made a legal parent of the child, while the biological father at the time had no legal status and was just a sperm donor.

Being lesbians have nothing to do with it. If a man and his wife have a child through a sperm donor, the man does not lose his parental rights if the wife later runs off with said donor. And the wife doesn't get to decide who gets to be the father to the child

Which is something you ignore or set aside when it suites you and your agenda.

If you read it clearly you would know Mrs. Brown had visitation rights via the courts, nothing more. Not exactly how the courts work where the divorce was granted but here in the USA the custodial parent can move the child with out consent from the other parent. Which is what has happened in this case.

Quote:
The Supreme Court of Canada has determined that a custodial parent cannot automatically move a child anywhere without the other parent's consent. Similarly, the Ontario Court of Appeal has also decided that a custodial parent does not have an inherent right to move a child anywhere he or she decides. Under both federal and provincial legislation, the decision to allow a child to be moved must be made in the best interests of the child.

If you move your child without giving notice
If you have a parenting agreement or order, and you move without giving notice to the other guardian or person who has contact, there could be serious consequences (including fines and even jail). If the move affects the ability of another guardian to spend parenting time with the child (or the ability of a person having contact with the child to have contact) as set out in an order or filed agreement, the other person can apply to court:

for an order that you wrongfully denied them parenting time. There are many decisions a judge can make in these circumstances. For more information, see the fact sheet What happens if I don’t follow a court order or agreement?
to change the parenting order or to set aside (cancel) the parenting agreement. For example, they could ask for an order that the child be returned and live mostly with them. The judge will make a decision based on the best interests of the child. The court may hold it against you that you moved without the permission of the other guardian or the court and without giving proper notice.
It’s also possible that you’ll be charged with a crime if there's evidence you’ve abducted the child. For information on the consequences of international child abduction, see the Government of Canada website.
