Action Alert: Call your South Dakota State Representative to Support Parental Rights!

We are excited to let you know that South Dakota State Rep. Sue Peterson has introduced HB 1246, an act to establish the fundamental rights of a parent!

We strongly support this bill. If HB 1246 were to be passed into law, it would enshrine into South Dakota law that parental rights are a fundamental right. This exact type of legislation is’s top priority.

If HB 1246 were to be enacted into law, South Dakota would join fourteen other states in the nation that already have similar laws protecting parental rights as a fundamental right.

Please call or email your South Dakota Representative as soon as possible and ask him or her to support HB 1246. This bill will be heard on the House Floor on Monday, February 14.

Your message can be as simple as:

“Please support HB 1246, An Act to establish the fundamental right of a parent. This critical and timely bill will enshrine into South Dakota law that parental rights are a fundamental right, as the U.S. Supreme Court has held for the past 100 years. HB 1246 will protect parents and children in South Dakota, allowing parents to make critical decisions regarding their own children.”

When you send an email to your Representatives, please feel free to link to the letter that we sent in support of HB 1246.

Thank you for standing with us to protect parental rights.
