Jamison Taylor's Action Points to uphold parental consent in schools:

First, make two phone calls …

Call OK Speaker of the House Charles McCall at (405) 557-7412 and ask him to pass HB 3324. Ask him to stand up to the Biden administration and pass Rep. Staires bill to protect OK parental rights for healthcare.

In MS, Rep. Lee Yancey has introduced a good bill that will be working its way through the process. Call or email your MS state lawmaker and ask them to support Lee Yancey’s two bills to protect parental consent for healthcare. They are HB 1100 and HB 1169.

Second, call your governor and ask him or her to intervene. The states don’t just have to do whatever the federal government says. But it’s governors and state education superintendents who will be implementing this.

Third, call your local school board and start asking questions. Here are three questions to get you started:

  • What is your school’s policy regarding parental consent for student healthcare?
  • Are you, as a parent, on record as providing blanket consent for your child's healthcare? 
  • What agreements does your school have with any providers to offer comprehensive healthcare, or any kinds of healthcare, in or through your school?
