Parenting is Unconstitutional

Do any of these judges actually have children?

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled yesterday against parents who sued their local school district after their elementary-age children were given a sexually charged survey, saying there is “no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children.”

The three-judge panel of the full court further ruled that parents “have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed while enrolled as students.”

This is absolutely outrageous! I have no right to object to anything my daughter learns in schools that I pay for with my property taxes?

When did Americans vote to make the state Mommy and Daddy?

  1. So the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there is “no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children.”

    Okay – this is reason #968 why we don’t send our kids to public school.

    If parents are going to send their kids to public school, they should not be surprised when things like this happen. Before they know it, their young girls will be taken in for an abortion without the parents even knowing (which already happens by jr.high).

    These parents don’t want to take the time to play an active role in their children’s education, but they are quick whine and complain when they lose their rights to the government school. Are they really that shocked to find out the government doesn’t give a rip about their kids, especially when it comes to something like sexuality?

    Well, with all of the humanists, homos and child molesters working at the public schools, who needs parents to teach children what is right or wrong?

    What more is it going to take for parents to get a clue?

    No more excuses – If you love your kids, pull them out of public school.

  2. That may not even protect them in the future. The president’s plan to require mandatory mental health screening of all school-age children may be the first step toward bypassing the right of parents to raise their chidren, period.

    We’re on the verge of seeing an American version of the Hitler Youth.

  3. That is why we homeschool our kids – Forget public school or any other bureaucratic daycare center! Derek, please check out my site if you haven’t already and reconsider where your daughter goes to school.
    Another reason for mandatory mental health screening is so they can put the kids on all sorts of mind-altering drugs to treat their “depression” or “hyperactivity.” If the government wants to know anything about our kids, we’ll tell them to go fly a kite! Those our MY kids given to ME by GOD.

  4. Clearly, there’s no enumerated right to control the public schools.

    There is, of course, an unenumerated right to educate one’s own child – if you want to exercise it, you have to homeschool (you can thank liberal jurisprudence of “invented rights” for that).

    It’s like buying a car – I have a right to buy a given car, but not a right to control the design.

  5. Like buying a car where the dealer tells you the make and model you’re going to get. If you don’t like it, you have to move to another town to find another dealer.

    Or you go with a vehicle you build yourself at home–but you still have to pay for the government-issued car. And the right to “do it yourself” may not be available for too much longer. The trends are leading to a day where parents will be compelled to submit their children to government schools.

  6. YARTHS – Yet another reason to homeschool
    I’m so glad my kids are approaching the end of their school “careers”; one a junior, the other a sophomore, both homeschooled since we moved back to the “real world” (from Alaska) six years ago.
