Parental Rights in America

I recently watched the new movie Overruled and it made me very concerned about the precarious state of parental rights in America.  Who will make decisions for your children regarding health care, education, religious instruction, and more?  Will it be you or the government?  Our most basic parental rights are at stake.

The Parental Rights Amendment was introduced in both houses of Congress on June 5, 2012, and this issue is one of the most critical facing Americans today.  We owe it to our kids (and to their kids) to be informed and involved.

Overruled is an excellent, professionally produced video (which can be viewed here in its entirety for free).  It has recently been abridged into a shorter, 7 minute version which hits the highlights of the issue.  I’m asking you to take 7 minutes to watch the abridged video and 2 minutes to act on it.

You can watch the video right here, right now, by clicking play in the box below, or by following this link if you are reading this post in an email.  If you don’t have 7 minutes right now, please come back to this post later tonight.

When you’re done, if you agree that something needs to be done, please visit Parental Rights.org/Petition and sign the petition, if you haven’t done so already.  There are also opportunities to donate on the website, if you feel led to do so.

Finally, please share this post on your Facebook status (page down below the post and click on the Facebook link where it says “share and enjoy”) or forward it to a few friends you believe will take action when they see this film.
