Connecticut -- Calls Needed to Defeat
Bills Affecting Your Parental Rights

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Your calls and emails are needed to defeat two Connecticut bills that
threaten your parental rights. Both of these bills are scheduled for a
public hearing on Tuesday, March 5, before the Joint Committee on
Children, so it is critical that members of this committee be
contacted right away.

First is Raised House Bill 6499, which would establish a task force on
the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). One
of the task force's purposes would be to urge the U.S. Congress to
ratify this dangerous treaty. The UNCRC would turn the parent-child
relationship on its head so that parents would essentially become
nothing more than facilitators of the choices of their children.

Second is Raised Senate Bill 1009, which would require the Connecticut
Department of Children and Families and the Department of Social
Services to "establish a program to evaluate the well-being of
children throughout the state." There is no indication of how this
evaluation would be done or what standards would be used to determine
a child's "well-being."

1. Action Requested:

Please call or email as many members of the Joint Committee on
Children as possible with this message or a similar message in your
own words:

"Please vote against Raised House Bill 6499 that would establish a
task force to urge the U.S. Congress to ratify the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of the Child. This international treaty
threatens the right of parents to direct the upbringing of their
children."

"Please vote against Raised Senate Bill 1009, which would require the
Department of Children and Families and the Department of Social
Services to evaluate the well-being of every child in the state. Any
such action would be unwarranted and would constitute a violation of
family privacy."

When emailing members of the Committee, we recommend that you put in
the subject line: "I oppose Bills 6499 and 1009."
