New Jersey: Don't let the Senate Health Committee erode parental authority

kids running to parentsThis Thursday, June 10, the Senate Health Committee will hear Senate bill 3801 and Assembly bill 5597.

It would amend the current law that gives schools the ability to administrate student surveys on sensitive issues including sexual behaviors and attitudes, drug use, physical activity and eating habits. Presently, schools in New Jersey must send home forms for parents to grant permission for their student to participate in this personal and probing sexual health survey.

The proposed change in New Jersey law would remove the requirement for parents to actively opt their student into the health surveys.

Take a moment today to send a message to the Senate Health Committee Members below letting them know that you support parental rights and encourage them to reject this proposed change.


  • State Senator Richard 'Dick' J. Codey
  • State Senator James 'Jim' W. Holzapfel
  • State Senator Fred H. Madden Jr.
  • State Senator Vin Gopal
  • State Senator Joseph 'Joe' F. Vitale
  • State Senator Holly T. Schepisi
  • State Senator Robert 'Bob' W. Singer
  • State Senator Ronald 'Ron' L. Rice

Please Protect Parental Rights in New Jersey!

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am contacting you in reference to S3801 and A5597. These bills are scheduled to be heard in the Senate Health Committee on June 10. I urge you to vote NO on these bills as they blatantly disregard parental authority by passively opting in students to surveys regarding their sexual activity and health habits potentially without parental knowledge or consent.

If a parent overlooks an email, misplaces an unopened letter, or the child forgets or even intentionally does not give their mom the opt out form then the student will be surveyed about their sexual beliefs and activity. A parent's silence does not mean a parent's consent.

Please stop the legislature from eroding parental authority. Vote NO on S3801 and A5597
