Montana -- Calls Needed to Support Parental Rights Amendment

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Your calls are needed to support the passage of a joint resolution of
the Montana Senate and House of Representatives favoring the Parental
Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution. Senate Joint
Resolution 9 urges the members of the United States Congress to submit
the Parental Rights Amendment to the states for ratification.

SJ 9 passed the Montana Senate Judiciary Committee last week by the
narrow margin of 7-5. It will now be considered by the full Senate.
Your state senator needs to know how important this legislation is to
Montana families.

The Parental Rights Amendment will add explicit text to the
Constitution of the United States to protect in perpetuity the
fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of
their children. Recent federal court cases have created confusion and
ambiguity about the fundamental nature of parental rights in America.

ACTION REQUESTED

1. Please call and/or email your state senator with this message or
something similar in your own words:

"Please vote for Senate Joint Resolution 9, which urges the United
States Congress to submit the Parental Rights Amendment to the states
for ratification. The Parental Rights Amendment is needed to protect
the fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing and
education of their children."

When calling your senator, do not identify yourself as a homeschooler.
This issue affects all Montana families.

To find your state senator with contact information, please go to
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10260 .

You can leave a message for your senator by calling the Session
Information Desk at (406) 444-4800.

2. Please forward this email to every family you know who is not a
member of HSLDA and urge them to contact their senator with this
message.

To view the text of this bill, please go to

Please call or email today!


Sincerely,

Dewitt T. Black, III
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
at
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
