Another Chink Taken out of your Right to Parent.

Read it and weep.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.

Parents just lost some of their rights today when the Senate Committee voted ITL on a Bill that would have required parental permission before conducting a mental evaluation on a child.

Senator Letourneau voted with US on this Bill, but unfortunately Senator Kelly, Senator Lasky, Senator Merrill and Senator Bragdon voted ITL.

Sen. Letourneau brought up the incident with the 2nd grade child in Taunton who was subjected to a mental evaluation after drawing a picture of a crucifix. THis is one of many examples of the schools overreacting and now the school is going to be subjected to a lawsuit from the parents.

IF you see/talk to Sen. Lenourneau, please let him know we appreciate his vote in favor of parental rights on this issue.
