Gov Dunleavy’s newly proposed legislation (Senate Bill 96 and House Bill 105) is a long overdue step towards protecting our kids in the public school system and the rights of their parents. 

In the last several years, the schools have acted as though the moment children step through a school’s doors, they become property of the state rather than somebody’s son or daughter.

Once inside, it’s like a secret society that parents cannot enter. Porno books in the library, abortion information, pronoun and name changes and LGBTQ promotion and clubs – which means that if someone’s child is invited to one of these clubs and chooses not to join, they are labeled a “hater.”

There’s also sex-ed classes, which can go in any direction since no parents are there to supervise. And let’s not forget the opportunity for OCS to pop in and take any kid aside privately to ask personal questions about their family and home life.

Many legislators will claim this is all for the child’s safety, as if they are “saving” kids from their own parents who have raised, trained, fed, sacrificed for and cured them of ailments throughout their lives, even in the womb.

How can there be enough employees if people can’t have children because they are having sex with the same gender or popping the morning-after abortion pills?

Since when did schools become the child police? When was it their job to “save” our kids from us? 

I won’t deny that there has been a small percentage of abused kids that were saved through public schools encouraging them to speak out about inappropriate and dangerous events happening in their homes, and I appreciate positive intervention, but that’s a far cry from the indoctrination, OCS’s “private talks” and public pressure that happens now.

I’m all about funding education, but I want to see kids excited about good grades, science fair projects, a robot they built, or a test they passed. My third daughter loved her school, and she had a wonderful experience – learning and making lifelong memories. That’s what school should be – learning, growing and making those positive memories. But things have changed in many schools.

Now, my youngest daughter could lose the name given to her by her dad so that she can “become a boy.” She could even be so sucked into this mentality through school social pressures that she might want cross-sex drugs and irreversible surgeries, even though she’s way too young to make a lifelong decision like that. More and more of the kids who took those drugs or submitted to surgeries are having regrets.

Lastly, we need to keep in mind that this it’s our job as adults to protect kids.

Promoting the LGBTQ lifestyle and abortion education leads to a declining the population. But all the news we keep hearing about lately is how there aren’t enough employees anymore. 

How can there be enough employees if people can’t have children because they are having sex with the same gender or popping the morning-after abortion pills?

We will NEVER have enough employees if the goal is to promote sex-without-live-births through so-called “Comprehensive Sex Education” policy. This type of training and manipulation is only successful through the schools because they have a captive audience without parents’ stepping in to stop it. 

It’s all in the name of “safety and freedom.” Boy, can those words get misused! 

Back to Dunleavy’s bill. It shatters this manipulation and power over our kids. Many in our State Senate oppose it for one reason or another, but we need this bill in order to sustain our schools. 

Unless parental rights are restored and kids are protected from this LGBTQ agenda, schools are not going to get the kids they need and therefore they will have a hard time convincing legislators for more funding.

Dunleavy’s proposal will help the schools, restore the proper balance of parental involvement, and protect the kids from plans that go out of the boundaries of basic academics, which is the true role of the school.

Unfortunately, many in the State Senate are fighting this bill. If we do not start writing and calling them in large numbers, it will just sit in committee and the vicious cycle will continue.

Lastly, we need to keep in mind that this it’s our job as adults to protect kids. Without our help, we can’t expect our kids to navigate the day-to-day school pressures of trying to fit in within the walls of their forced society. If we want them to do that we think is right, it’s our job to ensure that they are either homeschooled, private schooled, or in a public school environment that doesn’t lead them to sex and abortions. Schools should teach math, reading, writing, the sciences and history. Parents must take responsibility to protect their innocence and allow them to learn apart from agendas and indoctrination.

Please support SB 96 and HB 105 by contacting legislators and asking them to pass this bill.
