Parents’ Rights Disappearing: Have You Noticed?

A wasteland… that’s what you will see if you look into the state of parental rights today. 

Our rights as parents are eroding at an alarming rate. 

You may not know all the decisions that we can no longer make for our children.  The state has taken many freedoms from us in just that last few years. 

Children have been removed from their parents’ care for such things as seeking a second opinion on a medical diagnosis, declining a treatment for a child that is not medically approved for children, or for choosing to educate their children at home.

“The law is not on your side.” That is the conclusion ParentalRights.org has come to.  Take a look at their article The Unbelievable State of Parental Rights in America.

When I found this in my inbox, I thought it important enough to pass on to you.

If you have never looked at the concept of "parental rights," perhaps now is a good time to check it out!

We may not be as secure with our children as what we have thought!

Thank you, Parentalrights.org for keeping us aware and fighting for us.

This year I will be praying for those who are working hard on behalf of our families to secure our children's future. Will you also pray?
