Take action to preserve parental rights for generations to come. The best interest of the child principle is an age-old concept that first emerged as an articulate standard in American adoption law in the mid-1800s.

1. The best interest of the child is a dispositional standard, designed to guide judges when making decisions that concern children. Under traditional American family law such decisions only fall to a judge after a parent has been convicted of abuse or neglect, or in a divorce context when there is conflict between competing parents. The U.S. Supreme Court has consistently recognized “that natural bonds of affection lead parents to act in the best interests of their children.”

2. American law has historically operated on the presumption that parents are fit to make decisions in the interest of their children unless proven otherwise.

The Parental Rights Amendment will place parental rights within the text of the Constitution and protect families from unwarranted government intrusion. http://www.parentalrights.org/index.asp?Type=B_BASIC&SEC={485B7DA5-CCC2-4A61-94D7-E73763D3945E}
