NY: Threat to Parental Rights

======================================================================
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
======================================================================


S4779, a bill going before a committee of the New York Senate on
Tuesday, threatens your parental rights. The bill, "[a]n act ...
providing medical care to minors for sexually transmitted diseases
without a parent's or guardian's consent," would allow any health care
practitioner to administer an STD vaccine to your child "without the
consent or knowledge of his or her parents or guardians, provided such
person [your child] ... consents."

HSLDA believes that minors are best protected from unwanted
consequences of any medical decision if they can have the benefit of
their parents' counsel. We oppose this legislation because it removes
parents from involvement in a minor child's medical care. This bill
will apply to your children whether you home school them or send them
to public or private school.

ACTION NEEDED:

Please call your state senator and ask him or her to oppose this bill.
To obtain your New York senator's Albany office phone number, visit
http://www.nysenate.gov/senators. Tell them you believe children have
a right to the counsel and support of their parents when faced with
medical decisions like vaccinations.

While you are at it, consider contacting your U.S. Congressman's
office and urging your Representative to cosponsor H.J. Res. 42
proposing a Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Tell
them you are aware of bills like New York's S4779 that crop up each
year to erode parental rights, and that you want to see your rights
protected permanently. To find the contact information for your U.S.
Congressman, visit http://capwiz.com/hslda/home/.
