Parent's Rights - Federal or State Amendments ?

For those who support only a Federal Parental Rights Amendment, you need to consider who is President and Vice President. The first "fatherless" president and a VP who authored the VAWA !!


- First, support the Federal Parental Rights Amendmentt initiative by Rep Pete Hoekstra of the US Congress...

- Second, support legislation, state initiatives to support Shared Custody or Joint Parental Rights, not Shared Parenting. Support laws, initiate laws to support parents rights in every state, county and municipality.

Shared Parenting, Best Interest of the Child, and Tender Years Doctrine ??? These are policies, concepts, and legal attempts to mollify parents fighting in court. (Shared Parenting is a meaningless, pie-in-the-sky, feel-good, legally unenforceable concept.)

When someone asks you what you favor, say: "I am divorced, single now. I share custody with my ex and parent my children in my own home, as is my right. We no longer share parenting, since obviously we are divorced, but our children deserve both parents, and custody is shared since children need a mom and a dad."

Remember, it is almost next to impossible to have a federal Parental Rights Amendment passed to amend the US Constitution. For that to happen requires the US Congress to pass a proposed amendment to the states. Then 3/4 states must ratify.

The state governments would not pass it for one main reason: MONEY $$$$$

It would cut into their budget windfall from the federal government. As long as the federal government subsidizes state interference in family matters, the state governments will continue their atrocities against the people of their state and the children of their state.

However, state Parental Rights Constitutional Amendments would be passable and almost unchallengeable from state governments and agencies if it were based on federal court decisions and the Supremacy clause of the US Constitution supporting children's and parents rights.

The greatest problem now facing parents is the ratification by the Senate of the UNCRC, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. nuff said..

Proposed California Parental Rights Amendment

Section 1. The right of parents to direct the upbringing of their children, and to the care, companionship and society of their children is a fundamental right.

Section 2. The right of children under age 18 to the care, companionship, and society of their biological parents is a fundamental right.

Section 3. The state of California, nor any administrative, judicial, executive or legislative act, directive, order or rule or ruling shall infringe upon these rights without demonstrating evidence beyond a reasonable doubt in a jury trial that such a fundamental rights be abridged except in cases of criminal neglect, abandonment or abuse. No governmental act or acts now in existence can be created to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.
