Senate Bill 656
  • I support these critically important model policies in order to protect children from inappropriate sexual content at school and to respect parents’ right to determine whether their children are exposed to this content.
  • Not only do parents have a fundamental right to make these decisions, but they are also in the best position to know what is appropriate for their unique children.
  • There should never be questions of Parent's rights when it come to the welfare of their children and especially with parents' vs government or teachers' unions.    Children are a gift and a charge from God for procreation and for nurturing in love, kindness, well-being, training enrichment of their lives.    They should never be pawns of any ideology, program, organization or government over-ruling.
