The Next Five Minutes

The Next Five Minutes

This week we return to the Action Email with this question: What will you do with the next five minutes? If you could invest the next five minutes – or three, if you’re quick – in changing the world for generations to come, would you do it?

That’s exactly what we’re asking you to do. Invest just the next five minutes in telling your friends about the Parental Rights Amendment. Below is a message you can use. Send it to your entire email list, post it on Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter (see the attached Tweet). It won’t take long, but the results of passing the Parental Rights Amendment will last beyond our lifetimes, to our children and our children’s children. Protect the freedoms of our next generations – with five minutes of your time.

The Message

A parent’s right to raise their children as they see fit is a time-honored American tradition, but today it is being threatened. The Supreme Court’s Troxel v. Granville decision in 2000 undermined a 75-year heritage of Constitutionally-protected, fundamental parental rights, which 8 of the 9 justices abandoned. At the same time, a growing body of international law fuels activist judges to legislate foreign standards from the American bench, while treaties such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child would subject parental decisions to government oversight and international review.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (MI-2) has proposed HJR-42, the Parental Rights Amendment, to stop the erosion of parental rights in American courts while simultaneously defending our laws from international invasion. Please, visit parentalrights.org to learn more about the Amendment, and to join their email network by signing the petition to protect parental rights.
