Another State on the Brink of Protecting Parental Rights by Law
Oklahoma’s Senate last week voted unanimously in favor of House Bill 1384, codifying legal rights for parents in the state. Called the “Parents’ Bill of Rights,” HB 1384 is sponsored by Rep. Sally Kern (R-Oklahoma City) and Sen. A.J. Griffin (R-Guthrie).

While we have offered very basic model language to help state lawmakers get started in preserving parental rights in statutory law, some legislatures have gone far beyond our modest and simple wording. (This is a good thing in those states that can get more detailed and robust protections passed!) Oklahoma’s 25-page bill certainly qualifies as one of these, and seeks to cover parental rights in every possible aspect of Oklahoma law.

Because the Senate adopted amendments to the bill, it has to return to the House for another vote. An earlier form of the bill passed the House on a vote of 89 to 3 (with 9 excused) on February 19, and no opposition to the amended version is anticipated.

With passage of HB 1384, Oklahoma will join a small but growing list of states that protect the liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children as a matter of statutory law. Kansas included those rights in a religious freedom bill last year, while Nevada and Virginia adopted parental rights statutes of varying lengths and levels of detail. Other states, including Michigan, Texas, and Utah also protect parental rights by statute.

The vast majority of states recognize traditional, fundamental parental rights as a matter of judicial precedent. Without a statutory basis for those rights, however, they are subject to erosion as state courts follow the lead of their federal colleagues. The U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to apply the “strict scrutiny” standard of review in the Troxel v. Granville case in 2000 has especially led to confusion of this standard in lower courts which, as a result, treat parental rights as less than fundamental.

Massachusetts, where Justina Pelletier is in her fifteenth month of captivity at the hands of the Department of Children and Families, is among the states least friendly to parental rights. Yet even there, the tragedy of Justina’s case may open the door for some form of parental rights legislation.

We recently worked with Liberty Counsel to draft a bill that would make it illegal for DCF to accuse parents of “medical neglect” if they are following the diagnosis and treatment plan from a licensed medical provider. Such a law would have protected the Pelletiers from losing custody of their daughter when Boston Children’s Hospital disagreed with her diagnosis from Tufts Medical Center, then removed her parents from the equation for siding with “the wrong hospital.”

Thank you for standing with us in the effort to pass these state laws to protect children by empowering their parents to make these critical decisions on their behalf. Thank you, too, for supporting our ongoing effort to secure the ultimate solution to this problem, the Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

UPDATED:BAN Mandatory Reporting?

Did the Title get your attention??
If so, please read on
Any comments MOST Appreciated

>> Teachers are Mandated Reporters>> Check this Out
Hey, I'm not the one that suggested this, but this is one of five recommendations by one, who was high up on the agency Food Chain. (Please note: More than likely she was on the little known "Black List" since a bit after writing her paper, she lost this position.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~#4 of 5 recommendations~~~~

4. Repeal mandatory reporting laws that are in effect in all the states.

Mandatory reporting laws, designed to encourage those who work with children to report incidents of maltreatment, have served their intended purpose of raising public awareness and have had unintended consequences. These laws create two negative effects

  • First, they encourage unnecessary reporting because professionals must report all of their suspicions under threat of prosecution. While such prosecutions are rare, one should not have to report suspicions. Reporting should be restricted to more concrete evidence of a crime.

Since mandatory reports were required, reports have increased exponentially. In 1968, CPS agencies took in 11,000 reports; in 1975 (the first year after CAPTA), CPS had 294,796 reports; now they handle one million with low substantiation rates.

  • Second, mandatory reporting discourages fellow citizens from taking positive neighborhood action with families in trouble. 
Some evidence suggests that depression and social isolation are contributing factors to maltreatment, particularly chronic neglect. Citizens tend to consider that their responsibilities have been met when they call an anonymous hotline, because that is what the law tells them to do. Knocking on the door and offering help to a troubled family not engaged in criminal behavior, may be the more appropriate alternative.

Okay, maybe this is too much to expect the agency to do
since they have been in business for 40 years?

FOLLOWUP: Many in CA are trying to get Donnelly to either carry on the issue of Recording. and/or suggest another one in the Assembly. However, his staff  said he isn't going to carry on. Nor hasn't suggest another in the Assembly.

As a Team of dedicated Family Advocates in CA, we can only assume, at this point, Donnelly was more interested in the possible Governorship, than Our precious Families.

If anyone in CA would like to be involved in this issue, please give me a jingle at Thank You.

YES,  Assembleman Tim Donnelly , CA, presented a bill, AB 1828  to the HHR Review Committee and it was unanimously  

Since it didn't even get through the committee.

 The bill was centered on video taping ALL interviews with those involved of alleged Abuse and/or Neglect.

To me this Rejection is Very Sad, since in the name of "Due Process", video taping could be beneficial to both sides. But alas those who apposed the bill said, it would be too much $$$$ to get the video equipment to do such a thing. 
Yipes, I thought to myself.. Isn't that what we should ALL be concerned about is finding the TRUTH??
