The Amendment has also now been introduced to the Senate as S. J. Res 16 by Senator Jim DeMint. Since we currently only have 2 sponsors, this would be a great time to contact your Senator and try to encourage them to sign on too. Let's call our Senators and get them to stand up for parental rights.
Below is the Amendment we are seeking to draft. It's simple and yet profound as it will protect our rights as parents to direct the upbringing of our children.
Parental Rights Amendment
The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.
Neither the United States nor any State shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served.
No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.
