Congressman Pete Hoekstra on Parental Rights

Parents' Rights

Parents have the responsibility to care for, love and nurture their children. Parents, and not the government, should determine how their children are raised and how they should be educated.

At a time when government at every level seems to encroach upon the ability of parents to choose the best for their children, it is important to preserve parental rights into the Constitution. Doing so would protect parents’ ability to raise their children.

I will be introducing a Parents’ Rights Constitutional Amendment this Congress which would protect parents’ rights to raise their children from unnecessary government intrusion.

I am maintaining a list of confirmed supporters who will be added as original co-sponsors when the resolution is introduced in the 111th Congress. You may find the list below.
