Michigan House Bill 4564 is still in the works and now, under the leadership of Michigan Representative John Stahl, Michigan House Resolution NN (2008) has been introduced today! This is exciting news for those who would like to make Michigan family friendly once again!
All 51 Michigan House Republicans have signed on in support of Michigan House Resolution NN (2008). Only 29 of the 59 House Democrats have signed on in support of this resolution. Follow the progress of Michigan House Resolution NN (2008)
Congratulations to ALL of the House Republicans for supporting this bill. Congrats to the 29 House Democrats that signed on in support of this resolution. However, it is sad to see that once again Michigan House Democrats have failed Michigan's families, parents and children. Why is it that the Michigan House Democrats seem to support the rich Michigan Bar Family Law Section over Michigan families? This is a disturbing trend and I would ask all that currently vote Democrat in Michigan to reconsider their choice, with the exception of the 29 Michigan House Democrats who signed on in support of Michigan House Resolution NN (2008)
Will United States House Concurrent Resolution 241 and United States Senate Concurrent Resolution 59 give added strength to Michigan House Resolution NN (2008)? Will an almost bankrupt Michigan government support Michigan House Resolution NN (2008) as a way to avoid further economic hardship from the upcoming class-action lawsuits set to launch against every county in Michigan? See United Civil Rights Councils of America.
We will be watching this resolution closely. A Child's Right, Children Need Both Parents, Inc, Dads and Moms of Michigan, Michigan Family Rights Coalition, Michigan Fathers Rights Coalition and many more organizations are currently organizing a united effort to vote out of office those who oppose Michigan House Resolution NN (2008).

What is Michigan House Resolution NN (2008)?
This would be an amendment to the Michigan constitution!!
A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the state
constitution of 1963, by adding section 27 to article I, to declare
the fundamental right of parents and legal guardians to direct the
care, upbringing, and education of their children.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
state of Michigan, That the following amendment to the state
constitution of 1963, to declare the fundamental right of parents
and legal guardians to direct the care, upbringing, and education
of their children, is proposed, agreed to, and submitted to the
people of the state:
SEC. 27. PARENTS AND LEGAL GUARDIANS HAVE A NATURAL AND
FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO DIRECT THE CARE, EDUCATION, 1 AND UPBRINGING OF
THEIR CHILDREN. NO GOVERNMENT ACTION SHALL BURDEN, ABRIDGE, OR
HINDER THIS NATURAL, FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT UNLESS IT IS IN FURTHERANCE
OF A COMPELLING GOVERNMENTAL INTEREST AND IS THE LEAST RESTRICTIVE
MEANS OF FURTHERING THAT COMPELLING GOVERNMENTAL INTEREST.
Resolved further, That the foregoing amendment shall be
submitted to the people of the state at the next general election
in the manner provided by law.
We now have Michigan House Bill 4564 and Michigan House Resolution NN (2008)!! It is only a matter of time before we become victorious for our moral and just cause. Children have a God-given fundamental right to be loved, guided, nurtured, and educated EQUALLY by both fit and willing parents. To deny this is wrong. To deny this is indeed child abuse.
