Utah--More Calls Needed To Protect Parental Rights

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

This is the last day of Utah's 2006 legislative session, and House
Bill 148 is stuck in the Senate Rules Committee. If it does not move
out before midnight tonight, it will die when the legislature closes!
We believe that if this bill moves out of the Rules Committee, it will
be passed by the entire Senate.

ACTION REQUESTED:

1. Please call and email the Senators listed below right now, and give
them this message: "House Bill 148 would protect the rights of
parents. Please take every effort to move it out of the Rules
Committee and pass it this legislative session!"

To call these members, dial the Utah Senate number at 801-538-1035.
They can connect you directly, and if the Senator is not available,
you can leave a message that will be delivered quickly.

Michael G. Waddoups, Rules Committee Chair

Dave L. Thomas

2. Please call your senator and ask them to take action on H.B. 148
today, before the legislature closes. To contact your legislator,
visit HSLDA's legislative toolbox http://www.hslda.org/toolbox .

BACKGROUND:

H.B. 148 arose out of a controversy in which a court allowed the
former lesbian lover of the child's natural mother to stand in the
place of the parent against the wishes of the mother. The provisions
of this bill would protect the rights of parents against courts that
would otherwise allow third parties to stand in the place of a parent
over the wishes of a natural parent.

Sincerely,


Scott Somerville
HSLDA Staff Attorney
