Nanny State Bill

This isn't necessarily pro-life related, but it's definitely family issue-related. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is encouraging the U.S. to participate fully in a bill that would devastatingly undermine parental authority, under the guise of "basic children's rights." Now, call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure children have darn good rights in America. Child labor has been extinct for decades, and schools already attempt to undermine parents at every turn. But this bill would disallow spanking and other discipline, limit the decisions parents are allowed to make regarding their children's safety, even DISALLOW PARENTS TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN RELIGION!!

How could this ever be enforced without imposing some Orwellian Big Brother-type society (think: cameras in our homes!)? My opinion is, don't count that out. But most likely it would start with neighbor vs. neighbor ratting, and schools encouraging students to tattle on their parents.

This is a scary bill that we need to get vocal about. Spread the word and contact your Congressmen. This cannot pass!! Click here for more information.
