Are You Being Overruled?
ParentalRights.Org released an online docudrama, Overruled: Government Invasion of Your Parental Rights, which outlines today’s dangers facing American parents in their ability to direct the upbringing and education of their children.
The film, which runs 35 minutes at OverruledMovie.com, focuses on three real-life American family cases in which parental rights were egregiously violated by the government: a medical care case, an educational freedom case, and a religious freedom case. The movie also warns against adoption of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child. This treaty would override virtually all child and family laws in the United States and grant ultimate authority to international bureaucrats.
Overruled describes why the adoption of the proposed Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the only means to halt the parental rights violations which are taking place all over America.
“American parents just assume that their traditional right to make sound decisions for their children is fully protected in our legal system,” said Michael Farris, President of ParentalRights.org. He added, “Overruled reveals how precarious our rights are in today’s legal climate – and the movie makes it clear that we can and must fix the problem before it is too late.”
Fortunately, the American people overwhelmingly support traditional parental rights. A Zogby poll last year that surveyed over 2,000 people found that 93% of Americans agree with the traditional definition of parental rights, which is the ability to raise their children free from government interference so long as no abuse or neglect is taking place. Farris said, “We need to capitalize on this strong support all across the country and pass the Parental Rights Amendment to prevent government officials from unnecessarily interfering with families.”
Scott Scharpen, the film’s Executive Producer and chairman of the board of ParentalRights.Org, was proud to announce that Overruled is presented by ParentalRights.Org, a non-profit grassroots organization focused on passing the Parental Rights Amendment. Overruled is available online free of charge at OverruledMovie.com.
There was a time in America when parents were extremely in the education of their children. Parents were even present in supporting the work in public schools in the communities. Nowadays public schools are built like prison complexes and the influence ends at the school threshold. In some schools parents are not even allowed to take photos of their own children during activities on school grounds. This is un-American, unchristian and it violates fundamental natural rights of parents that have been watered down gradually through liberal-leftist court decisions.
Please watch this movie and pass it on to others. If you haven’t done it yet, please sign the petition to pass a parental rights amendment to the US Constitution to ensure that government will not remove children from homes unless their is genuine evidence of abuse or neglect. The right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children needs to codified into law so that international agreements (UNCRC) cannot supersede state laws on education or family policy. Please make sure that you as a parent will not be overruled by leftist in government bureaucracies when it comes to the upbringing of your children.
