(WND News Center) – A senior contributor at the Federalist, Stella Morabito, has published a warning to parents that if leftists are not stopped in their agenda, moms and dads soon could need a “license” to raise their own children.

“Licensing of parents might still sound fringy, but it’s an old social engineering dream that dies hard. And they’re busily building the road to get there. Unless there is aggressive and sustained pushback, you can count on the idea invading the mainstream,” she explained.

“So parents can’t let down their guard. They hold the key to getting through this wild ride.”

In her warning, published at the organization’s website, she cited the factors that are at issue now: the racist critical race theory that teaches school students all whites are racist, “extremist” sex education that includes pornography, “social and emotional learning” instruction to tell children how they should feel, COVID-19 masks and vaccine mandates and more.

“All of these directives hijack the role of parents as the emotional and moral guides of their children,” she said. “Parents ought to be asking: What next? If those trends are left unchecked, I think the answer could be the state licensing of parents.”

With the FDA's decision to officially approve the Pfizer COVID jab, calls to vaccinate schoolchildren and more university students will become louder and more insistent.

But, America's children and young people must be protected from unknown future side-effects of these drugs, and parents' rights must be respected!

Please SIGN this urgent petition which demands that COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities be prohibited in every U.S. state.

This petition will be sent to the leaders of every state legislature and to every governor in the United States, urging them to pass emergency legislation banning vaccine mandates for primary, secondary and university students.

Students simply have the right to be educated without being forced to violate deeply held principles and their own bodily integrity!

But, unfortunately, some private schools, like the Jesuit-run Brophy College Prep School in Phoenix, Arizona, have already mandated the COVID vaccine for their students, in spite of massive parental opposition. If parents or students reject the vaccine, students face intrusive weekly testing and exclusion from extra-curricular activities.

Also, more and more universities have actually started to disenroll unvaccinated students. But, even where that is not happening, not taking the vaccine often subjects students to masking, extra testing and additional administrative obstacles.

And now, with the Pfizer jab approval, Joe Biden's Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, is threatening more mandates.

While it is true that the FDA approval for the Pfizer jab only pertains to those over 16 years of age, the pharmaceutical industry and some state actors have been pushing to get approval for pre-teens!

So, it stands to reason that the Federal government will try to impose vaccines on schools, for those 16 and over, as well as on all university students. But, eventually, such mandates could even apply to younger and younger schoolchildren.

That's why state legislatures and governors must fight back against any attempt to coerce school students to take a COVID vaccine against their will!

Science and logic should dictate public health policy. And both say that mandatory vaccination for children and university students is not only unnecessary, but very likely dangerous for the future health of America's youth.

The CDC reports that the rates of death, injury, and hospitalization are very, very low for children and adolescents and that COVID transmission in schools, both from student to staff and between students, is also very low.

And a European CDC study concluded that "no evidence has been found to suggest that children or educational settings are primary drivers of COVID transmission."

So, right now, we know that schoolchildren are at very low risk of becoming very ill as a result of COVID, or of even transmitting the virus.

But, we don't know how a hastily-prepared, unstudied vaccine will affect the health of millions of America's youth in the future.

Gambling with their future, and the future of our nation, should not even be entertained for one second!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging state legislatures to ban COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities - both public and private. Urge them to respect parents' rights, informed consent and bodily integrity.

Thank you!

While it may sound extreme, she pointed out that “let’s not forget that critical race theory and transgenderism were once laughed off as fringy academic notions before they burst into newsrooms, then into classrooms and public libraries.”

She pointed to instructor Hugh LaFollette who outlined “Licensing Parents” in a 1980 article, which suggested biological parents should be vetted under the same requirements as adoptive parents, with psychological testing and more.

Key in the argument, was his claim that parents should not be considered to have “natural dominion” over their children.

Thirty years later, LaFollette holds the same agenda, only this time with “an incremental path,” she said.

He said parents should be required to take parenting classes and such.

Morabito said there have been efforts to undermine the nuclear family, by characters such as Karl Marx, who rallied for “abolition of the family,” Hillary Clinton’s “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child,” and such.

Other activists on the agenda have been the “staunchly Marxist Black Lives Matter organization,” the Biden administration and the Obama 2012 campaign’s “Life of Julia.”

Today, it’s school boards that want parents to sit down and shut up regarding critical issues in classrooms that affect their children.

“The hot trend of disrespect for parental rights shouldn’t surprise us. We can feel it when schools hide health information from parents. We see it in legislation that allows minors to be taken in for abortions without parental knowledge or consent. It happens when schools hide from parents their child’s claim to be transgender. Judges have even stripped custody from parents who don’t want their minor child to take cross-sex hormones,” she said.

She said three trends provide reason for alarm, the “growing propaganda campaign that vilifies family cohesion,” the crusade for “sexual rights” and special privileges lawmakers have granted regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.

Her warnings include that CRT claims children in intact families have “unearned” privilege that must be dismantled, the claims that “sexual rights” are “human rights” and sexual orientation mandates like the proposed Equality Act that would injure parental rights.

Morabito attested that alone would “open the door for a state actor to declare ‘unfit’ any dissenting parent, Christian or otherwise. If that happened, we’d likely see more state-enforced procedures to determine parental fitness.”
