Utah--One More Step: Calls Needed for Parental Rights Bill

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

House Bill 148 has already been through a large amount of drama as it
has worked through the Utah legislature. By the grace of God, it has
passed both chambers, and is on the governor's desk, ready to be
signed.

Both the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret Morning News have published
editorials asking the governor to veto this legislation, and the
lobbying groups that oppose this bill are hard at work, contacting the
governor's office for a veto.

ACTION REQUESTED:

Please call and write the governor's office. Ask him to support
parental rights by signing H.B. 148!

Jon Huntsman, Jr.
Utah State Governor
Utah State Capitol Complex
East Office Building, Suite E220
PO Box 142220
Salt Lake City, Utah 84114-2220

801-538-1000

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
