Louisiana: Urgent--Act Now to Support Parental Right Resolution

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The Louisiana Senate will be considering Senate Concurrent Resolution
38 which urges the Congress of the United States to adopt the Parental
Rights Amendment. As many of you already know, the Parental Rights
Amendment would put into the text of the Constitution the principle
that parental rights are fundamental and can only be interfered with
by governmental officials in the least restrictive means possible. The
Parental Right Amendment would also protect against the UN Convention
on the Rights of the Child.

We need your calls and emails to the Louisiana Senate to help pass
this resolution. We understand that SCR 38 will be on the Senate floor
today, possibly at 9:30 this morning.


Please contact your state senator in Baton Rouge at (225) 342-2040
(preferred), or email them at the addresses below--or both--and give
them this message in your own words:

"Please support the Parental Right Amendments Resolution and vote in
favor of SCR 38. While the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized in a long
line of cases that parents have a fundamental right to direct the
upbringing and education of their children, I believe we need to
recognize this right in the text of U.S. Constitution. Thank you for
your support of parental rights."
