WHEN IS IT OK TO LIE TO MEMBERS AND DONORS?
In an email newsletter dated 9 September 2008, Meryl Dorey stated:
“ 
THANK YOU doesn't even come close! “ 
Thank you all for your amazing response to the plight of the families who are fighting for the right to make an informed decision about the healthcare of their children. We are very happy to be able to report that thanks to your help, one of these cases has been settled with a positive outcome and we now have sufficient  funds to cover the legal expenses of the other family for the present. Indeed, we arein the wonderful position of having a small surplus in our Fighting Fund account.”

Yes, that’s right: Meryl Dorey told her members that the money that had been raised tohelp a family on the run had been spent on the family, and that there was small amount leftover.Not long before that Meryl Dorey had appealed for donations to help this family to go onthe run. A hospital’s medical staff was concerned that the mother of a new-born baby had hepatitis,and wanted to administer the appropriate vaccination to the baby as soon as possible. The familyimmediately did a runner and went into hiding, avoiding the medical staff, the Dept of Community Services,and the Police who were trying to find the family to ensure that they complied with a Supreme Court Orderwhich had been issued.Meryl Dorey began an appeal for donations to assist the family. (The legality of aiding people to defy aSupreme Court order is another issue worth examining, but that is for another day.) The appeal began withan AVN newsletter dated 22 August 2008 and now available online.
