HJ Res 3: Parental Rights Amendment to the Constitution

Postby Daruma » Tue May 24, 2011 3:43 pm

Proposed legislation to recognize parental rights under the US Constitution:
http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z ... L&summ2=m&

I have emailed my congresswoman to express support for this bill, which was introduced into the House of Representatives in January 2011. (It has been introduced in previous years, but it failed to get any traction.)

The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a
fundamental right.

Neither the United States nor any state shall infringe upon this right without
demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest
order and not otherwise served.

No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to
supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.

There's also a petition supporting this bill, but I think that contacting my representative as an individual is more useful than signing a petition. If you're interested, you can find the petition at http://www.parentalrights.org/ .
These are my personal opinions only. They are not legal, medical, or financial advice.
