With many thanks to those who have called, and to the guidance of Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), the Parental Rights Amendment (PRA) is gradually but daily gathering cosponsors in both the U.S. House and Senate!
Already there are thirty-three cosponsors in the House, and four in the Senate.
Be encouraged with this turn-out and continue to pray for more cosponsors in both the House and the Senate.
Continue to pray for the “the liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children [as] a fundamental right” (Parental Rights Amendment, Section. 1). Your support is also greatly valued. In many instances, we just need to get the new language in front of the Congressman and get his official approval to sign on as a cosponsor. Some of the cosponsors are working on it as fast as they can. Others mean well but are distracted with other more pressing matters. Your additional phone calls will make the Parental Rights Amendment the most pressing thing on their agenda.
So please take a moment to call again and encourage your Congressman and Senators to sign on to the Parental Rights Amendment as original cosponsors (Parentalrights.org). Most importantly, remember to keep this important piece of legislation in your prayers and to spread the word!
