Parental Rights Under Fire: Illinois Policies Unpacked

Updated: Feb 16

As a parent and advocate for parental rights, I wanted to bring to your attention the implications of policies like the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act (HB 4876) in Illinois.

The language in HB4876 violates parental rights and poses dangerous consequences for parents who raise valid concerns about their rights, their children's autonomy, and the government's role.

This bill could expand the definition of parental abuse and neglect, potentially criminalizing parents who oppose certain medical interventions for their children, such as abortion or gender-affirming procedures.

This could lead to situations where parents' rights to make medical decisions for their children are superseded by state intervention.

Parents and communities must engage in informed discussions about these policies to understand their full implications and advocate for approaches that protect children and parental rights.

As parents, it's important to protect our God-given authority and autonomy over our children's well-being, as outlined in scriptures such as Ephesians 6:4 and Proverbs 22:6, which emphasize the responsibility of parents to raise their children according to their beliefs and values.

In States like Illinois, the education complex is a hotbed of racial, sexual, or political ideology that can potentially threaten the well-being and development of our children.

It is crucial for parents to be informed, acknowledge, and address these concerns in order to prevent further harm to their children's spiritual, emotional, psychological, and biological well-being, as well as the continued decline in educational attainment.

The insatiable appetite to expose children to godless, sexually explicit health curricula and medical procedures is a violation of their innocence.

It is not the responsibility of bureaucracies or schools to teach any form of sexual perversion, acts that lead to murder (abortion), or the mutilation of children's bodies in schools.

This is especially true without parental consent or when exercising parental consent and notification is prohibited.

This proposed policy, along with Public Act 102-0522 (Comprehensive Sex Education), HB346 (LGBT History), and HB370 (Parental Notification of Abortion Act, repealed) is wicked and woefully unconscionable, just to name a few.

In light of these issues, we are organizing an urgent round-table discussion to discuss Illinois policies impacting parental rights and child welfare.

The meeting will occur on Sunday, Feb 18, 2024, from 2-4 pm at the Woodson Regional Library in Chicago.

We will delve into the intricate web of Illinois policies, analyzing current policies and unpacking proposed policies, like HB4876, to provide a comprehensive view of the political landscape in Illinois.

We aim to explore how these decisions could reshape family dynamics and child welfare in the state.

We hope you can join us for this crucial discussion. Your participation and voice are crucial as we collaborate to safeguard parental rights and prioritize the well-being of our children.

I encourage you to send a message to your state representative, urging them to address this issue and protect parental authority.

Thank you for your attention to this critical matter. If you have any questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
