~ Telios Law Founder Theresa Lynn Sidebotham laments lawmaker’s cavalier attitude toward parental rights ~
Parents are not only the ones with the best knowledge on how to help and protect their children, but they also have a constitutional right to do so.Telios Law Founder Theresa Lynn Sidebotham
Parents Have a Right to Protect Their Children
Two Democratic lawmakers were caught calling the fight for parental rights “garbage,” “crap,” and “stupid.” The individuals in question, state Sen. Monty Mason and state Del. Shelly Simonds, were unaware that their microphones were still live when they started mocking S.B. 1515, a bill that required pornography websites to verify a user’s age to be at least 18 before allowing access to its content. They also blasted an amendment to the bill proposed by Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin that would require children to get permission from parents to set up social media accounts and use websites that collect user data, such as online shopping sites.
Hot on the heels of Joe Biden saying that “there is no such thing as someone else’s child” and that “our nation’s children are all our children,” their outright distain for parental rights rattled concerned Americans across the country.
Telios Law, PLLC, Founder Theresa Lynn Sidebotham commented on the implications of this laissez-faire attitude towards the welfare of America’s children.
Sidebotham said, “Lawmakers mocking parental rights to limit children’s access to porn as ‘parental garbage’ is both out of touch and tragic. With recently spiraling rates of mental health issues and suicide, young people are not doing well. Parents are not only the ones with the best knowledge on how to help and protect their children, but they also have a constitutional right to do so.”
USPIE founder Sheri Few shared similar beliefs. “It’s up to us to fight for our children. If we don’t protect them, who will? Parents need to be equipped and prepared to enact change in their children’s education.”
