Pennsylvania Leader to Participate in “Parents Know Best News Conference and Rally” at State Capitol
(Harrisburg) – On September 24, 2019 beginning at 10:00 a.m., a “Parents Know Best News Conference and Rally” will take place in the Media Center and the Main Rotunda of the Capitol Building, respectively. The event will outline some of the many examples of a government seeking to take away the rights of parents. In too many cases the government steps in and does harm to both children and families in its attempt to wield its power and send the message that it knows what’s best for children.
Diane Gramley, President of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, a statewide parental rights and child advocacy group, will be speaking at both the news conference and the rally. During her presentation she will name several cases of children being taken from good parents who have done no harm, yet the “all-wise” government steps in and takes the children! She will also give examples of school districts which have usurped the rights of parents who want to know what their children are being taught or who have a concern about what is being required of their child.
Gramley states, “Increasingly I read stories about parents losing their children or being threatened with the loss of a child because of government actions under the guise of doing what’s best for the child. It’s past time for parents to reclaim their rights and put the government back in its place! We need to send the message: The government does NOT know best how to raise our children!!”
