Protecting Parental RightsPosted by Randy | July 22, 2013
I recently cosponsored H.J.Res.50, the Parental Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Amendment specifically states that the "liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children is a fundamental right." Additionally, the amendment declares that no federal or state government action, including ratification of an international treaty, can infringe upon this right without demonstrating a governmental interest of the highest order.
Today, more than ever, our family structure is under attack, but I believe that parents must retain the right to direct their children’s upbringing and education without undue government burden.
I will continue to work to rein in activist judges that threaten the very foundation upon which this county was built – jeopardizing our culture of self-responsibility and responsibility for our children. Read more about my work on these issues here.
