Trailer for the documentary Unfit: Ward vs. Ward.

In 1995 in Pensacola, Florida, Mary Ward lost custody of her 11 year old daughter, Cassey, to her ex-husband, John Ward, solely based on her sexual orientation. John, a convicted murderer and alleged child molester, was deemed a better parent by the court system that said the child deserved to be raised in a non lesbian world , even though the courts own appointed social worker testified in defense of the mother. An appeal court upheld the decision in 1996. Mary Ward died of a heart attack in January of 1997 while awaiting the outcome of her second appeal.
