Yes, I believe that parental rights should be constitutionally protected through the proposed Parental Rights Amendment:


The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a

fundamental right.


Neither the United States nor any state shall infringe upon this right without

demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest

order and not otherwise served.


No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to

supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.
