Bill of rights for children seen as major attack on parental authority

Bill of rights for children seen as major attack on parental authority

The Culture

A proposed law in California vows to create a “bill of rights” for children in the state. 

“It’s really not the children’s bill of rights. It’s the government’s bill of rights,” warns attorney Brad Dacus of California-based Pacific Justice Institute.

Senate Bill 18 was introduced in December by Dr. Richard Pan, a Harvard-educated pediatrician who angered Californians in 2015 when he authored legislation that eliminated children’s exemptions for vaccines.

Dacus calls the legislation a Trojan horse that is written so broadly it would allow California’s famously left-wing state government to decide abortion, sexual orientation and schooling options for children.  

Such concerns about parental rights drew ridicule from fact-checking website Snopes, which panned claims from a circulated email that the bill allows the state of California to seize children from their families.
