(Newser) – Lisa Marie Presley's reaching out to John Travolta and Kelly Preston, while also calling out those who have used their son's death to trash Scientology, Us magazine reports. “Folks, as popular as it has been to discriminate and ridicule Scientology and Scientologists in the recent past, now is NOT the time,” she wrote on her MySpace blog yesterday, calling condemnation of the religion “an unconstitutional injustice.”

“It is not true that Scientologists ‘don't believe in’ medical care, medicine, or medical doctors,” Elvis' only child continues. “Whatever medical and/or physical condition Jett had, I can tell you firsthand that his parents were on a tireless, never-ending quest to get and provide him with the absolute best care anyone could ever ask for and need—medically, physically, emotionally, medicinally, and spiritually.”
