Guess what! HB 513 is out of Rules and will be put on the House floor calendar. Woohoo! Here’s what you need to do…

1. Call your State Representative and ask him or her to vote yes on HB 513 to preserve the rights of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children. (Visit if you need to look up your representative’s number.)

2.[No longer a need, skip this one]  If you have an extra few minutes, consider calling Representative Diehl (573-751-1544) and VERY briefly letting his assistant know that you feel it’s very important that HB 513 be scheduled on the House floor ASAP to protect parental rights.

3. Do NOT call Representative Bahr’s office if he is your representative. He is the sponsor of the bill and does not need to be asked to vote yes on it. It’s his bill; he will vote yes. 😉

Thank you for your efforts!

Missouri Parental Rights Update: Please keep fighting for your state and be aware!

I just signed up with parental facebook page to be updated on new happenings within our state and parental rights.  I will post the update below but at this time I would like to really encourage everyone to be on the lookout for new bills and proposals that can pop up at any time for a vote.  While some bills seem harmless they may at times contain laws that could completely eliminate your right as a parent!!  The choice to medicate, educate and life decisions may very quickly end up in the hands of the government. Please, please stay alert!!!
