This is from Tim Lambert at Texas Home School Coalition:
"Now the association has learned that the federal proposal for health care reform could lead to a problem of similar nature (i.e. CPS' intrusion into homes). Section 440 and Section 1904 of HR 3200 (page 838), under the heading, "Home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children," would provide grants to states for home visitation programs to educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills. The language states that government agents will 'provide parents with knowledge of age-appropriate child development in cognitive language, social, emotional, and motor domains . . . modeling, consulting, and coaching on parenting practices, skills to interact with their child to enhance age-appropriate development.' In addition, it says "...the State will promote coordination and collaboration with other home visitation programs including . . . other child and family services, health services . . ."
Imagine the ramifications of this: required vaccinations, state curriculum, reports of child abuse, forced 'socialization', and more. This is a very sneaky way to include non-health care related laws into much bigger bills.
This bill has already passed the House of Representatives. Now the Senate must vote. It's VERY important that this bill is not allowed to pass the Senate. President Obama will sign ANY health care bill that reaches his desk.
Please flood Washington with your protests:
The White House: 202-456-1111
Harry Reid - Senate Majority Leader: 202-224-3542
If you don't know who your representatives in Congress are, click here. It is extremely important to get involved NOW if you value your right to raise your children without government intrusion.
This is a great learning opportunity for the kids. Teach them how to call Washington and express concern for this bill.
There are lots of reasons to get involved. Here are some of them.
