There are now 5 Democrat-authored bills shoving aside parents and eliminating parental rights on the floor of the California State Assembly. But with enough opposition calls (including demanding Republican assemblymembers stand and speak), these awful bills can be defeated!
You’ve heard about 4 anti-parent bills. But arriving soon to the Assembly floor (August 31 is the last day for the Legislature to pass bills) is AB 1940, which pushes all sorts of garbage on kids, behind their parents’ backs. Fortunately, AB 1940 was amended in the State Senate, so it must return to the Assembly for a concurrence vote (to agree with the amendment).
There’s practical hope, since, due to strong public outcry, SB 866 has been stalled on the Assembly floor since June 6, and another anti-parent bill, SB 1184, has been stalled on the floor since August 1 (after the Legislature returned from its month-long paid vacation).
Please act NOW. Your bold, loving action today can determine the outcome of these blatantly anti-family bills, which can come up for votes in daily Assembly floor sessions between August 15 and 31.
Oppose these 5 anti-parent bills on or coming to the Assembly floor:
AB 1940 pushes promiscuity, abortions, risky vaccines, mind-altering drugs, and “sex changes” upon children – behind parents’ backs — via “school-based clinics”
SB 866 threatens children with coerced vaccines behind parents’ backs (eliminates parental consent and informed consent)
SB 1184 lets health insurers disclose children’s info to school or county reps behind parents’ backs
SB 1419 eliminates parental rights to see all of their children’s medical records
SB 1479 mandates schools develop a “Covid test” plan, targeting every boy and girl for invasive testing, tracking, and quarantining, shoving aside parental rights and wishes

YOUR 3 STRATEGIC ACTION STEPS
STEP 1. Leave voicemails for the deciding-vote Democrats and 1 independent* 7pm to 8am and weekends, without identifying yourself, since most legislative offices “trash” messages from outside their districts: Tell them, “Don’t you dare eliminate parental rights! Oppose the anti-parent bills SB 866, SB 1184, SB 1419, SB 1479, and AB 1940.”
These are mostly anonymous calls, so they’re easy and brief. Please care and act by taking 10 minutes today and 10 minutes Sunday to leave quick voicemails.
