Parents Rights Bill H1050 before the Education Committee on Thursday, Oct. 27
The strengthened Parental Notification & Consent Law
October 15, 2005
This updates the flawed law passed in 1996. The gay lobby and
Planned Parenthood know that this will stop the homosexual agenda in
the public schools by giving parents the power, and not the gay
activists. Parents would no longer have to struggle to "opt-out"
their kids (if they can), but choose to "opt-in". Last year the
homosexual lobby fought us bitterly. This year we'll win!
