Parental Rights Act Doesn't Really Provide Clarity Of Rights; It Cedes Them To The State

A measure is currently before Congress to amend the U.S. Constitution with a Parental Rights Amendment.

When we understand that any such amendment would move control of parental decision or action to federal control, the amendment takes on a whole new meaning.

Once an amendment has been made to the constitution, the "control" shifts from State and Local governments to decisions of The Supreme Court. On last check, those decisions haven't been going favorably for Conservative Christians.

Here is The Parental Rights Act from the website of the deceptively named,
The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children is a fundamental right.

The parental right to direct education includes the right to choose public, private, religious, or home schools, and the right to make reasonable choices within public schools for one’s child. 
Neither the United States nor any State shall infringe these rights without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served. 
This article shall not be construed to apply to a parental action or decision that would end life. 
No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.
