Considering how egregiously parents’ rights have been trampled in recent years, federal parental rights legislation recently reintroduced in Congress sounds promising, but its premise is dangerous. In fact, it could result in eroding parents’ God-given rights to direct the upbringing of their children.

The precedent for parental rights legislation was initiated by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, whose bill was dubbed by critics the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. A noteworthy feature of the DeSantis law is that it prohibits sex education in kindergarten through third grade (five through nine-year-olds). It is hard to believe that we need a law to prohibit sex education for children who, at these young ages, aren’t even thinking about sexuality, but nonetheless it is necessary.
I agree that the parent/child relationship is a fundamental human right and the government should stay out of that. On the other hand, what can be done when a Woke parent decides that their little girl who likes to play with boy type toys must be a boy and decides to start the process of changing their child to the opposite sex? Similar situation when a 3 year old boy tells his mother that he might be a girl. The Woke parents that are going along with their very young children’s fantasies are child abusers. Who should deal with them? Doesn’t seem to be much different than a parent that is abusing their child in other ways. Physically or sexually for example. The government already steps in for those cases. Who else will do it?
