INDIANA: Parental rights bill in danger
Influential lobbying groups, including several Indiana judges, want to keep parental rights bill HB1407 from getting a hearing.
Our Stand: At-A-Glance
- HB1407 is a parental rights bill that protects parents’ rights to direct the care and upbringing, education, health care, and mental health of their minor children. The bill passed through the House at the end of February, but with concerns held by a few judges. The question is whether the Senate will hear and pass the bill despite the judges’ concerns.
- Bill author Rep. DeVon’s has assured opposition that the judges would be able to testify in the Senate committee, as well as work with him to shape the policy that becomes law.
- Help keep this bill alive by sending a one-click email to your State Senator plus four key Senators. Just one click today can protect parental rights in Indiana forever.
- Then amplify that message by making a phone call to Senator Bray at (317) 232-9416, telling him you support parental rights bill HB1407 and want it to receive a hearing.
